This Hospital Gives Mini Cars To Kids Getting Ready For Surgery

Having surgery can be scary at any age, but especially for children who may not understand what goes on in the operating room. That’s why one hospital came up with a creative way to comfort kids who are heading into surgery.

At the Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, California, kids can drive themselves into surgery with their own mini cars.

The cute mini vehicles are designed for hospital patients ages two to seven.

Kids preparing for surgery can choose between either a pink VW beetle or a black Mercedes.

The mini cars can be operated by the kids themselves or with remote control and have functioning taillights and headlights.

They’re also equipped with real radios so patients can listen to their favorite music on the way to surgery.

Pre-op nurse Kimberly Martinez came up with the creative idea.

“When the children find out they can go into the operating room riding in a cool little car, they light up and in most cases, their fears melt away,” Martinez told CBS News. “In addition, when parents see their children put at ease, it puts them at ease as well.”

“It can be traumatizing for a young patient to be peeled away from their parents as they head into surgery, this truly helps everyone involved.”

And people love the hospital’s idea.
