With the continuous optimization and reform of the healthcare system, many of the equipment in hospitals are developing in the direction of intelligence. At present, the hospital bed call system relies mainly on the traditional cable. Wired call system wiring is tedious and high in cost. It can sometimes cause short circuits, circuit breakages, and other problems, which will affect the timely treatment of patients. Based on ZigBee CC2530 software and hardware technology, this paper designs a wearable wireless calling system in hospitals based on ZigBee. ZigBee technology is a short distance wireless communication technology, which is characterized by low power consumption and low cost. This article sets up the style of the watch based on the ZigBee wireless communication hardware. The nurse can detect the patient's location at all times through the wireless call system device worn by the patient. When a patient is away from his or her hospital bed and suddenly needs care, the patient can call the nursing station according to the wireless communication system worn on his wrist. The nurse can arrive quickly and carry out the treatment, which can greatly alleviate any emergencies. The application of this wireless call system has significantly improved the level of hospital care and further promoted the development of hospital equipment in the direction of intelligence.
