Nagoya, Japan: Robot take over the night shifts in a hospital
You’re not amused if your chef comes to you and asks you, whether it’s possible to go on the night shift because a colleague isn’t available, right? Normally you say – well, okay. But maybe this time is over in the near future. Today we’re looking to Nagoya, a City in Japan. They wanna change something. Normally you have day and night shifts if you are a worker in a hospital. Of course – because people have woundings all the time. You are not able to decide, whether you want to have them at day or at night. But more and more shift workers are stressed because late and night shifts can get really tricky and hard. So a hospital in Nagoya will now introduce robots into this night shifts to support human colleagues and of course patients.

And before you are now afraid – don’t worry. This kind of robots won’t work in the surgery room. They’re just here to assist nurses. You can compare the robots more with transportable refrigerators. They can handle up to 90-litre content and have cameras to zoom in the hospital in Nagoya. But what is, if they run into peoples? Well, we know that Japanese people are friendly, so the robots too. They will say: “excuse me, please let me pass”. Friendly – aren’t they?
The staff has also the ability to coordinate this technical colleague from point a to b and let them bring stuff. But right now, the first trial will start. This robot will serve from 5 pm to 8 am. Should this trial become a success – maybe the clinic will let produce more of them but for the moment, there is just one unit in duty. Last but not least – the robot is produced by #Toyota We think it’s a great idea for less important jobs – so the staff can take full attention to patients and help them. It would be also a success if a nurse has one minute more time for each patient. But we also think that you can programme this tiny mechanical dude into a guide. So if someone asks him whether Person X’s room is, this little guy could guide the guest to the patient.
