The Parc Taulí Hospital in Sabadell has incorporated a toy electric vehicle so that children from the Ambulatory Surgical Center (CQA) can enter the operating room in a fun way.
This is an initiative of the nursing professionals of the CQA, inspired by an experience of a hospital in Oklahoma (United States) and that has resulted in the reduction of stress and pre-surgical anxiety, both for children and their families, As reported by the Taulí in a statement on Wednesday.
The director of Pediatric Surgery of Taulí, Bernardo Núñez, has pointed out that there are scientific publications approving the use of electric vehicles and toys in the operating room and has described it as an excellent way to "reduce nerves in the face of surgery that causes anxiety".
In addition to the toy, children can listen to their favorite music, being, as the hospital has emphasized, the first Catalan health center that introduces this toy car on the way to the operating rooms.
It is an action of the campaign 'Onada de petits somriures', an initiative that collects funds to transform the Pediatrics plant into a seabed, focused on this line of converting the most hospitable hospital spaces.
