Adult Inpatient Nutrition Services

Every in-patient unit of the hospital has a dietitian on staff.  The registered/licensed dietitian completes a thorough nutrition assessment, defines and addresses any nutrition problem identified from the nutrition assessment, calculate patients' nutrition needs and determines appropriate intervention, which may include education, and monitors the nutrition status over the course of hospitalization. They work closely with the entire medical team to ensure a high level of comprehensive care, and also with food service to make sure the patient receives the appropriate diet for their condition.
