In the era of internet technologies, to provide wireless communication and transfer the information in seconds from one place to another has arrived because of the need to consume information technologies. All users desire to quickly access the smart world’s life and interact with the entire world socially. This paper proposed an environment for the safe and secure smart patient’s room connected to the WSN, BAN, and RFID. All the data will be transferred to the session key, secure and contains the patient’s information. The network connected through WSN and data will be sent through the session key to make an smart hospital’s patient cabin. The small token is there that will be transferred throughout the network to get authenticated by each network. This proposed scheme is secure enough to overcome the drawbacks of the other protocol in such a way as to make the protocol more secure from the entire adversary’s attack may occur.
