Re: Did Phlox ever have a nurse in any season?

Nurses aren't just apparatus. Their role is to deal with people, to assess their needs and evaluate their condition, to plan for their care, and to offer support and comfort. It's a job built around personal interaction and decision-making, and could not be replaced by machinery. More advanced equipment could perhaps explain fewer orderlies and medical technicians, but not fewer nurses.
