MOST JAPANESE THINK NURSING-CARE ROBOTS SERVE THE SUPPLEMENTARY ROLE OF ALLEVIATING BURDENS ON CARE RECEIVERS AND CAREGIVERS, SURVEY SAYS
Robotic nursing care has been one of the revolutionized technologies slowly filling in the gaps of the nursing industry and now the Japanese people recognize it as a positive one.
According to a survey conducted by Orix Living Corp., a nursing care service provider, over 80% of Japanese are positive about receiving nursing care from robots.
The result suggested that people feel a psychological burden from being taken care of by humans, Orix Living said.
The said online survey, covering 1,238 people in their 40s or older across the country, which was conducted in September cites that the proportion of respondents who said they are ready to or want to receive nursing care from robots stood at 84.3%, hitting the highest level since a related question was introduced in 2011.
46.9%, the largest group, said they want to be taken care of by humans.
In the survey, most respondents said they think nursing-care robots serve the supplementary role of alleviating burdens on care receivers and caregivers.
Erudite Nursing Institute™ is much positive about obtaining nursing-care robots in nursing homes, in connection to low staffing levels experienced by majority of healthcare institutions and nursing homes across US.
