We show that it is possible to identify individual personality traits and measure group performance in a Post-anesthesia Care Unit (PACU) using wearable sensors.We instrumented a group of 67 nurses working in the PACU of a Boston area hospital with sociometric badges capable of measuring physical activity, speech activity, face-to-face interaction, and physical proximity. Using the data collected with these sensors we were able to estimate the daily average length of stay (LOS) and number of… CONTINUE READING
