Having surgery or merely going to see the doctor can be a frightening experience even for some adults. It brings some unusual feeling that only the person who’s going to take the operation will feel. This little girl was having a hard time before going into surgery, being in an unfamiliar place, with many unfamiliar faces. Nobody could calm her down as she started to cry, and was visibly anxious and nervous. But suddenly, this Chinese doctor surely knew how to ‘care’ for a patient—especially children.
The two-year-old girl was taken to Zhejiang hospital and needed to undergo immediate surgery for her disease. The doctor in charge, Shi Zhuo, saw that the little girl wasn’t ready and started crying looking for her parents. But she needed to be operated on. So Doctor Shi patiently comforted the child, showing her videos of his own 6-year-old daughter whom he loved so much.
After a few convince words, Doctor Shi carried the little girl on his lap, and this is when Jin Ziying, an anesthetist, captured the heartwarming actions. Many Chinese netizens admired his actions and compliments by saying that he treated his patient like his own daughter.
After a few moments, the little girl stopped crying and was even laughing at some videos she saw. The doctor was able to successfully calm her down—and definitely earned the little girl’s trust. I bet he is the same kind-hearted dad at home.
The acts resemble the movie ‘Baymax’ wherein the robot in the name of Baymax take care the main character of a movie. But in this one, it happens in real world. In the operating room, medical staff usually sooth patients with hugs, expressions, and words. It’s very normal, seeing this kind of scene Doctor Shi added.
