New information technologies (IT) can be effective in the prevention, identification, and reduction of transmission of nosocomial infection and consequently decreasing time and additional costs in the hospital. Among these technologies, wireless sensor network (WSN) is able to simultaneously cover the activities of data management, infection source identification and tracking, warning, and preventing infection transmission. For acceptance and successful implementation of WSN-based project in the hospital, identifying and paying attention to the indexes and critical success factors by IT managers and officials of care organization and the hospital is required that acceptance and implementation of the technology does not face failure and paying high costs. Hence, the aim of this study was to identify critical success factors of accepting infection diagnosis by wireless sensor network in the hospital that helps healthcare managers and staff to adopt and facilitate the WSN technology acceptance process at health care centers. This study was narrative review, which search was conducted with the help of libraries, books, conference proceedings, through databases of Science Direct, PubMed, Proquest, Springer, and SID (Scientific Information Database). We employed the following keywords and their combinations; Wireless Sensor Networks, Critical Success Factors, Nosocomial, and Hospital. The preliminary search resulted in 150 articles, which were published between 2003 and 2015. After a careful analysis of the content of each paper, a total of 43 sources was selected based on their relevancy.
