A medical radio telemetry system has a plurality of telemeters with one telemeter being located on each patient. Each telemeter is connected to the patient to collect data such as temperature, heart rate, pacer rate, respiration rate, brain activity level and blood pressure level. Each telemeter has a patient locator system that functions in conjunction with one or more room locator transmitters. The room locator transmitters are spaced in the rooms or area where the location of a patient is being monitored. A signal from the patient locator transmitter is passed to the patient telemeter. All signals received by the patient telemeter are transmitted to an antenna system that is connected to a receiver. Preferably, there is more than one antenna system with means for switching between the systems to obtain the best signal. Each telemeter has up to six channels so that six separate signals can be sent to the receiver simultaneously. The receiver is connected to a display means for the signals.
