I found this pretty horrifying
, as well as some of the quotes I saw on the page.
ROBOT nurses could be bustling around hospital wards in as little as three years.
The mechanised "angels" - being developed by EU-funded scientists - will perform basic tasks such as mopping up spillages, taking messages and guiding visitors to hospital beds.
They could also be used to distribute medicines and even monitor the temperature of patients remotely with laser thermometers.
Working in teams, the intelligent robots will be able to communicate with each other and co-ordinate their duties.

That robot sounds nothing like a nurse. Housekeeping cleans up spills, secretaries take messages and our escorts/transporters show pts to their rooms.
What kind of idiot would accept medications from a robot.
Do the inventors even understand what a nurse is??
