I would find it much more useful if it could be tuned to tell me when machines start making funny noises as opposed to people coughing and asking for help.

I think something like this is a better solution for monitoring coughs, it can toss you a lozenge if you need one.

Interesting idea, seems like a solid add-on for existing nurse call systems. I'm curious to know how this works in rooms with more than one bed. It's definitely an interesting proposition for care homes/in-home care.
