Nutrition

Patient with tray

Nutrition is an important part of your care. Your diet is prescribed by your doctor. For most diets, you will receive a menu to make your food selections. A tray-passer will deliver meals to your room and take special food requests.

  • If you get hungry or thirsty between meals, ask your nurse for light snacks that are available in your nursing unit pantry.
  • Mealtime depends on the location of your room. Check with your nurse for specific mealtimes and assistance with room service.
  • If you miss a meal, room service is available from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. by calling extension 4939. Registered dietitians are responsible for your nutritional care. Dietitians and nutrition technicians are available to answer your nutrition questions, evaluate your nutritional needs, and assist you with food selections.

Food for visitors

Although dining at the Fountain Court Café is encouraged for your visitors, guest trays are also available. To order a guest tray, please call extension 4939. A fee is charged and is not covered by insurance. Guest trays are not available in ICU.

You may also refer to the folder Food Service for Our Patients and Guests, in your bedside table.
