Doctors Medical Center in Modesto, Calif., helps young patients who are anxious before surgery by giving them mini cars to drive to the operating room, according to an article on the People website.
A pre-op nurse, Kimberly Martinez, came up with the idea. She did research and found the cars have a lasting impact on young patients.
The hospital purchased a black mini Mercedes and a pink Beetle was donated by an employee and her family. The one-seater cars are both equipped with a stereo and a collection of preloaded music and an MP3 player, which the kids can operate themselves or by remote control.
The cars have doors that open, working headlights and back-up and dashboard lights.See the latest posts on our homepage
