Inpatient Options and Nutrition
A proper diet plays an important role in your treatment. Your physician will select the diet best suited to your particular needs.
Physician Ordered Diet
Your physician orders your diet along with medicines and treatment for a complete program of care. Your diet may change from time to time depending on your treatment plan.
If you have any food allergies or intolerance, please tell your nurse when you are admitted so that this information can be relayed to the dietary office. A selective menu will be sent on your breakfast tray so that you may choose the next day's meals.
If you have trouble selecting food from your menu, alternate choices are available and snacks are available on request. A registered dietitian or member of our food and nutrition staff will gladly answer any questions you may have regarding your food or diet. Registered dietitians also provide nutrition counseling to assist those who need to modify their home diet.
Diet & Nutrition Counseling
