Please bear with me, doc­tor

7 Days in Dubai - - NEWS -

Chil­dren afraid of doc­tors and hos­pi­tals will soon be able to take their sick toys for med­i­cal treat­ment in Dubai. The idea was put for­ward by Mah­mood Ja­mal Al Deen through the Mo­hammed bin Rashid Smart Ma­jlis app and shared in a meet­ing with the Mo­hammed bin Rashid Univer­sity of Medicine and Health Sci­ences and the Knowl­edge and Hu­man De­vel­op­ment Author­ity (KHDA). The aim is to give chil­dren a pos­i­tive hos­pi­tal ex­pe­ri­ence, hope­fully re­duc­ing their anx­i­ety if they need med­i­cal at­ten­tion them­selves, ac­cord­ing to the team from Mo­hammed bin Rashid Univer­sity of Medicine and Health Sci­ences. The univer­sity will adapt their sim­u­la­tion cen­tre so that chil­dren can meet health work­ers who will as­sess and treat the toys. Toys that re­quire surgery will be taken to a spe­cial op­er­at­ing room, where chil­dren can watch the pro­ce­dure. Dr Ab­dulla Al Karam, di­rec­tor gen­eral of KHDA, said: “The toy hos­pi­tal is a great ex­am­ple of how govern­ment can work to­gether with the broader com­mu­nity to sup­port chil­dren’s hap­pi­ness.” The Mo­hammed bin Rashid Smart Ma­jlis app al­lows all res­i­dents to share their ideas to im­prove Dubai.
