A Scottish Hospital is Using Robotic Nurses for Mundane Tasks

The new robot-staffed hospital in Scotland is introducing a fleet of robotic nurses. The idea is to have the robots provide services and do mundane tasks like bringing patients food and dispensing drugs.

To me, this sounds a little too sci-fi and impersonal. What ailing patient will want a robot to dispense their drugs for them? The robot-staffed hospital will cost $444 million dollars and opens in August. I wonder how future patients will react. Stats for Robot-Staffed Hospitals Trending: Older & Average
