Providing high quality healthcare service is important in a society not only for the patients but also for their families and friends, who devote time to take care of their loved ones. In order to meet the healthcare demands of citizens, especially for the baby booming generation, an increasing number of long term care facilities are necessary. There are many challenges to run these facilities to ensure safety and care compliance.
