About SARA

Care institutions and hospitals in Europe are facing serious staffing shortages. As a result, three out of four nurses is experiencing a problematic workload and high time pressure that holds them for doing what they value most: spending time with their patients. Heavy work pressure has proven to be related to a poor quality of care and incidents such as medication errors. In order to improve the work environment of health care professionals and the wellbeing of their patients, the robot supports them by providing patients with meaningful social interactions specifically designed for certain health conditions like dementia.The problematic work pressure of healthcare professionals drives them to dissatisfaction with their jobs and emotional exhaustion. The workload is crucial to the quality of care, as most incidents, such as medication errors, occur with nurses that experience problematic work pressure. SARA aims to better work and life of healthcare professionals and their patients by creating robotic care assistants. The robot functions as a social entity in nursing homes and hospitals to improve the quality of care. The goal is to reduce the workload of healthcare professionals.
