SAN DIEGO - Undergoing surgery and being loaded onto a gurney may be scary for some kids. But a children’s hospital in San Diego may have found a more fun way of getting young patients to the operating room.
Rady Children’s Hospital allows kids to drive themselves to the OR in mini luxury cars, Reuters reported.
The cars, which were donated by the San Diego Regional Law Enforcement Teddy Bear Drive, include a BMW, Mercedes and Lamborghini.
“The kids are having fun. The parents are seeing that they’re relaxed and that they’re happy,” Dr. Daniela Carvalho told Reuters.
Rady Children’s Hospital performed 20,369 surgeries so far in the 2017 fiscal year and has treated 237,116 children.
