Inpatient Nutrition Services
Inpatient dietitians and dietetic technicians work with a wide range of patient populations, including those who are malnourished, have difficulty eating, require special dietary restrictions, and those being fed through a feeding tube or through their veins. All patients are screened in order to identify those at nutritional risk. Clinical dietitians evaluate the nutritional needs of patients and establish a nutrition plan with the goal of providing optimal nourishment.
Registered dietitians, dietetic technicians, and diet clerks in the Department of Clinical Nutrition strive to ensure that all patients receive proper nourishment for optimal health and healing. Clinical dietitians and dietetic technicians work closely with patients and the medical team.
