This is my first E-R diagram for my first Mini Project on Hospital Management System.
how the treatment
and equipment is weak entity???
Both are weak entities as they don’t have primary key. We can convert treatment to strong entity by creating treatment ID as its primary key.
can i make a E-R diagram for Hospital Management system that has only 3 entity type?
please explain well
Yes, you can.
Go through E-R diagram basics tutorial, you will get good idea about the same.
enter the question for e-r diagram too plzzzzz……….
Just do a Google search.
what does a triangle signify here? “is a” is in triangle
Triangle specifies concept of Generalization (bottom to top) or viceversa. For more details Google for “Is a ralationship in database”.
the triangle is like a connector for example employee is a doctor or nurse they both are employee
It will be right that The Hospital Management systems is very easy to maintain, cost-effective, scalable and get with well known price.
what are these double lines showing towards nurse??
Those double lines show that there is at least on nurse governing each room.
Im stucked with the same Hospital management System digram .. My one is a lil different than urs .. ur diagram helped me alot .thnks dude ..
Sorry double *ellipse
Double ellipse in an E-R diagram represents multivalued attributes. As attributes info and contact no can have multiple values for a single entity, so is the ellipse. Hope this helped.
What does double dotted ellipse and single dotted ellipse specify?
Double dotted : Attribute can have multiple values.
Single Dotted : Derived attribute.
are these relationships one to many or many to many how do we know it?
I have not specified whether relationships are one to many or many to one. You can show it with the help of appropriate directions.
Thanks man is is the good job u did ,it help me on board exam ,
Welcome. Keep visiting.
What is the difference between attributes ID and Record No.? Which have same values?
ID is an identification number generated for a particular patient whereas record no keeps track of records. Both are primary keys of Patient and record respectively.

You can use any good (or comfortable) drawing tool. Staruml is good one for offline, if you like online tools try gliffy.com.
Gud job…..you can give somemore explanations……….
Some more explanation in the sense. Diagram itself is explanatory.
what are the segments of the diagram?
Relationships can be displayed as diamonds or can be simply line segments between two entities.

The ER diagram itself is self-explanatory. What else do you need?
wat is the foreign key in the above diagram?
Foreign key is the attribute used in one entity, which is the primary key of other entity. In my case, I haven’t shown any foreign key.
& wat will be the bottom up approach for this ER Diagram?
This ER diagram has been designed with bottom up approach. In Bottom up approach, you first design whole database schema, define hierarchy and relations between entities and when everything is finalized, you draw the diagram.
what does it mean by ISA there?
ISA is a symbol specifying special category of a general type. eg. person ISA doctor. Hope this clears
