Someone rightly said that doctors are next to God. This statement is proved by the Delhi doctors team who perfectly handled the case of a toddler who was not ready for her treatment. As per the reports of ANI, an 11-month-old baby denied for her fractured limbs treatment. Later, she agreed.

The 11-month child, Zikra was rushed to the hospital after her thigh bone was fractured. However, she was not ready for treatment. Therefore, her mother came up with an idea of bringing her best friend, her doll and requested doctors to give a similar treatment, ANI reported.

The idea of mother worked as Zikra gleefully accepted treatment after seen her doll beside her.


According to Zikra’s mother, Farheen Malik, “Pari (Zikra’s doll) has been with my baby since her birth. At home, Zikra is always playing with her doll and considers it her friend. When she was not ready to take the treatment due to pain, I requested the doctor to use this treatment method on her doll. Now Zikra is responding well to the treatment.”

The doctor also applauded the mother of Zikra for her timely intervention.

According to ANI, "It was her mother's idea to replicate similar treatment method on her baby doll (Pari) to whom she is attached like a friend. We tied the doll in the same position. It worked like a charm," said Dr Ajay Gupta.

Dr Gupta also added that this has improved the atmosphere of the hospital.

"The child took it in a positive light that her friend was also undergoing similar treatment. It has also lifted the atmosphere in the hospital as it is usually a place where people are in suffering or pain," added Dr Gupta.
