FARGO— Jamestown Regional Medical Center disinfects with the help of a robot.
The robot works to kill difficult to destroy virus strains like COVID-19 and more. The medical center just purchased its second $100,000 robot to help sanitize rooms quicker. The robot was funded through grants.
"Anytime patients are in our surgical rooms or our patient care rooms we go through and clean with this robot to ensure everybody's safety," said Lisa Jackson, JRMC foundation director.
The first robot, purchased two years ago, is named ROSIE, which stands for "Robot offering a safe and ideal environment." The medical center invites the community to help name the new robot.
