Robots are being used in an Irish hospital 'so nurses can spend more time treating patients'

Daily Mail - Science & tech 

A hospital in Ireland is using cutting-edge software robots to help free up nurses to spend as much time with patients as possible during the coronavirus pandemic. Mater Misericordiae University Hospital in Dublin will now have robots that rapidly process administrative and computer-based tasks that nurses normally have to do. It is hoped that by giving nurses more available time they can spend it at the side of critically ill patients fighting COVID-19. Software developers at UiPath developed a system that will speed up the often clunky processes inside the healthcare system. It is hoped that by getting computers do most of the mundane admin tasks they can spend up to 50 per cent more time with patients.
