This Hopital Gave Kids Mini Cars To Drive Into Surgery

A hospital in California has come up with a clever way to sooth the anxious young patients on their way to the operating room.

Rather than being wheeled into surgery on a gurney, youngsters at Doctors Medical Center in Modesto can now drive into surgery in little toy mini-cars.

The tiny surgical patients have the choice of driving either a black Mercedes or a pink Volkswagen Beetle.  And if the children are incapable of driving the hot rods, they can also be piloted by an adult with a remote control.

How the kids react 

Employees of the center hope the cars reduce kids’ stress, anxiety and fear before they go into the operating room. “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,” pre-op nurse Kimberly Martinez, who came up with the idea, told CBS News.

The one-seater cars come equipped with a stereo, an MP3 player, and a collection of already downloaded music.  In addition, according to Fox8, the little luxury cars have doors that open, functioning headlights, taillights, dashboard lights, a seatbelt, and a horn.

“These sweet rides take our smallest patients to the operating room,” the hospital said.   They have introduced a new pink Volkswagen Beetle. “The goal is to reduce anxiety and stress, and make the experience less scary for everyone involved.”

So far, it seems like the luxury car is doing its job and is making the whole world say “awww” in the process.

Martinez said she notices an immediate difference since they’ve introduced the cars, and said she hopes the benefits have lasting impacts.

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

According to Martinez, the cars are for kids ages 2 through 7. The cars are very safe — they have working doors, a seatbelt and a horn.
