BETTENDORF, Iowa  —  A hospital in Bettendorf is trying to make trips to the doctor less scary for kids by letting them practice with their best friends.

Children brought their favorite teddy bears, stuffed animals, and dolls to Trinity Hospital on Saturday. While there, the kids played “doctor” by checking the heart rate and blood pressure of the toys.
