Have you ever walked into an operating room fearing the surgeons? Fear not, because rainbow-colored surgical masks and caps designed to ease patients’ tension is apparently the latest thing to hit Chinese hospitals.
Allegedly inspired by the hit TV show, Grey’s Anatomy, doctors and nurses of Hunan Provincial Maternal and Child care hospital have joined in on the fashion.
With a variety of patterns such as flowers, clouds, animals, Hello Kitty and more, doctors believe the color helps calm the patients and distract them – presumably from the likelihood that they’ll lose an ovary during a pelvic operation or get blinded during a nose job. Zing!
