Inpatient Nutrition Services

Dietitians coordinate the preparation of meals for patients in the hospital according to their individualized needs. In addition, as part of the patient care team, they identify patients with special nutritional needs and provide quality assessments and plans in an effort to improve their nutrition. Some patients may require nutrition intravenously (IV) or by a feeding tube. In these cases, dietitians calculate and provide recommendations to physicians about a patient's calorie, nutrient and formula needs.

Dietitians also are involved in other areas:

  • Outpatient Services: With a referral from a doctor, Nutrition Services will call and make an appointment with you. Initial appointments are one hour, with 30-minute follow-up sessions as needed.
  • Diabetes Education: Dietitians are part of a team of educators who work with people with diabetes to provide individualized care plans to manage blood sugar.
  • Cancer Care: As part of the cancer care team, dietitians help people with cancer before, during and after treatment to maintain good nutrition, combat side effects of treatment and help them keep their diet as normal and enjoyable as possible.
