Hospital allows kids to drive themselves to operating room

21 Septembre 2017

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.

A children's hospital in California has unveiled a special feature to put its young patients at ease as they head into the operating room.

The cars are operated by a doctor or nurse.

The cars were donated by the San Diego Regional Law Enforcement Agencies through a teddy bear drive that raised money and stuff animals for the children at the hospital.

AIA Group buys Australian insurer for S$4.1bn
Commonwealth chief executive Ian Narev said the lender remained committed to providing high quality products. The sale increases AIA's position as one of the biggest life insurers in the Asia-Pacific region.

Kids ages three to eight will have the option to cruise in a BMW, Mercedes, or Lamborghini. "The parents are seeing that they are relaxed and that they are happy", said Dr Daniela Carvalho, medical director of surgical services at the hospital. When they see their child smiling, it makes the separation anxiety a lot easier.

"Just the fact that. we're able to help our children and their families in the operating room relax a little bit more, and actually have fun when they're going to the operating room, is just tremendous". But for us, I mean, we're driving the auto, we're having fun, too, of course.

So far, the cars have been a big hit, Carvalho said.
