A Solution

The solution to this problem is to provide children undergoing surgery with colorful, child-friendly surgical hats and blankets. Having a fun hat, given by the doctor or nurse to wear, which is similar to the blue hat that doctors and nurses wear, is known to alleviate the child’s stress and fear. This also helps to develop trust and a friendly relationship between the child and the surgical room staff. The child gets to keep the hat, allowing them the opportunity to role-play after their surgery. The child will also keep the blanket.
