Hospital emergency nurse call system depend on fast response time. While several hospital nurse call system have already been developed in the market, we found that most of them suffer from speed and cost issues. Ordinary nurse call systems are costly with cable setup and not portable as they are fixed above patient’s bed. One of the ways of solving this issue is by using portable nurse call system. With this system, patients will be able to call for help wherever they want. These certainly shorten response time for hospital’s stuffs to reach patients. In this project, a new prototype of portable nurse call system that uses Wifi internet network is developed to improve the system mobility. A cheaper and easy programmed system development board (Arduino) was chosen. A Wifi module - Xbee module was added to the development board in order to connect to Wifi internet network. Some sensors were added to emulate a real system. System was then tested for its functionality and practicality. Data packets sent through TCP/IP were investigated. This portable developed system are able to speed up the response time of hospital’s stuffs toward patients.
