There are probably nursing homes trying this out on small, individual, experimental scale, in most (possibly all so far) cases just thinking of a solution for their own needs rather than a product useful to, let alone that could be sold to, other nursing homes, and thus not advertised that we would hear of yet.

The companion robots in nursing home use now don't involve ChatGPT,
which is a very new arrival.
The bot is designed as a companion for older adults, connecting them
to family members and reminding them about health goals.
The new ElliQ 2.0 comes with upgraded features including new
conversation prompts, virtual experiences, and an app for family
members and carers. Cost 250 USD + monthly support charge.

I don't know whether medical staff would let a ChatAGP robot loose on
patients. It is too free-form and could go into subjects that might
distress patients.
