Nursing shortages continue to be an issue in the industry, and finding opportunities to increase productivity in a safe and efficient manner is a large opportunity for providers.Studies have indicated that up to 40% of a nurse’s time may be consumed by non-nursing tasks. Overworked nurses lead to lower patient outcomes, fatigue, burnout, and turnover.In 2016, OSHA recorded 19,700 on-the-job injuries to nurses with 74% occurring in hospitals and 91% attributed to females.Nursing injury rates are dramatically higher than industry standards.The use of AMRs on patient floors reduces the physical demands on medical staff, allowing them to focus on critical, life-saving tasks that require expert medical training.  AMRs will allow medical staff to have more time for patient interactions and empathy with those in need.By leveraging the capabilities of robotics, healthcare providers enhance operational efficiency, improve patient care, and create a safer and more productive environment for both patients and staff.  Studies show that improved physical conditions result in higher workforce retention.

“Joining forces with MiR and their impressive mobile robotics technology portfolio has already started to create new and exciting opportunities for our team.The feedback from the industry and our customers has overwhelmingly validated what we knew to be a great fit” according to Chris CalluraVice President of Operations and Strategic Partnerships at Chang Industrial.
