This paper describes the system LAURA which provides patient localization, tracking and monitoring services within nursing institutes through a wireless sensor network. The system is composed of three functional blocks: a localization and tracking engine which performs localization out of samples of the received signal strength and tracking through a particle filter; a personal monitoring module based on bi-axial accelerometers which classifies the movements of the patients eventually detecting hazardous situations, and a wireless communication infrastructure to deliver the information remotely. The paper comments on the design and dimensioning of the building blocks.
