Hospital let's kids 'drive' themselves to operating room

Hospital let's kids 'drive' themselves to operating room”

But a children's hospital in San Diego may have found a more fun way of getting young patients to the operating room.

A children's hospital in San Diego, California, unveiled a collection of remote controlled luxury mini cars on Tuesday that allow its young patients to "drive" themselves to the operating room, reported Reuters.

Actually operated by a nurse or doctor, the cars are part of a new program created to make kids more relaxed before their procedures.

As per the report, Dr Carvalho added: "The kids are having fun".

The kids can choose between three high-end cars: a Lamborghini, a Mercedes or a BMW.

'It's a very stressful moment when kids come into the operating room for their families, ' said Dr. Carvalho told NBC Los Angeles.

St. Richard's Hospital Pediatric Day Surgery Unit in West Sussex, England, was gifted a mini-Rolls-Royce from the auto manufacturer in March.

Hospitals don't exactly have a pleasant atmosphere - while adults have the tendency to feel a churning in their stomach, a child's fear of hospitals and surgeries is beyond imagination. "Knowing that they're doing so well and that they're happy - it makes us happy, too".
