Why do nurses need Buddy robots?
The World Health Organisation (WHO) estimates that the world will need an additional 9 million nurses and midwives by the year 2030. On top of this, the population is aging, and as the population ages, the need for health services increases.
An international survey of 2,500 nurses in July 2022 reported that 64% of nurses are looking to leave the healthcare profession, a nearly 40% increase from the surveys conducted in 2021. Three-quarters of those surveyed admitted having experienced burnout, experienced trauma, extreme stress or PTSD.
Nurses play a critical role in Primary Health Care delivery, often being the first and only health professional patients see. However, our observations and surveys prove that 37% of a nurse day is spent fetching equipment they need in connection with care situations.
