BANs (Body Area Networks) are networks which use different sensors for controlling status of patients. In these networks, according to type of disease, some medical cares' are done inside the hospital or at home. Sending information with the best quality is one of the most challenging tasks in BANs. Because of some real-time information in BANs, delay, packet loss and throughput are very important. In this paper, one hospital health care is considered that routing between nodes was carried out with the Ad-Hoc routing protocols namely OLSR, AODV and DSR. Results showed that AODV has a better performance than others for BANs and OLSR also is better than DSR. For simulation, opnet was used.
