Hospital allows kids to drive themselves to operating room

Hospital allows kids to drive themselves to operating room

LOS ANGELES: A San Diego children’s hospital unveiled a collection of remote-controlled luxury mini cars on Tuesday that allows its young patients to ‘drive’ themselves to the operating room.

The cars at the Rady Children’s Hospital are actually operated by a nurse or a doctor and are part of a new program designed to make children more relaxed before their procedures.

“The kids are having fun. The parents are seeing that they’re relaxed and that they’re happy,” said Dr Daniela Carvalho, medical director of surgical services at the hospital.

The cars were donated by the San Diego Regional Law Enforcement Teddy Bear Drive. Children have their pick of a BMW, Mercedes, or Lamborghini, ensuring their ride to the operating room is a luxurious one.
