Children in the University Hospital of the Canary Islands in Tenerife will travel to the operating theatre or to go for various tests on board electric cars.
This initiative, which has already been launched at the Mother and Child Hospital of Gran Canaria and other hospitals in the peninsula, is operated by the Red Cross and the Obra Social La Caixa.
The purpose for using electric cars with young children in this hospital is reported to be all about reducing the stress caused by admission, improving awakening after operations, as well as to facilitate the post-operative period.
