The Dietary Department at PSHM oversees food and meal preparation for patients in the hospital. Registered dietitians contribute to the patient's treatment plan by recommending which hospital diet to prescribe. The meals are balanced and personalized with regard to patient preferences and intolerances/allergies. Registered dietitians may instruct hospitalized patients on diet and monitor the effectiveness of the nutrition care plan. Patients discharged from the hospital may receive follow-up diet consultation on an outpatient basis.
