Dietitians in our Clinical Nutrition department work to design meal plans that improve or maintain the health of patients whose diets require close monitoring. Nutrition assessments and screening of all patients allow us to create a baseline for good nutritional health. The Clinical Dietitians provide meal plans, monitoring, and follow-up for patients on therapeutic diets, on enteral or parenteral nutrition support. For patients found to be at nutrition risk, dietitians use innovative assessment and evaluation techniques to customize the nutrition care process for each individual. These interventions include: nutrition education, nutrition counseling, and coordination of care and provision of specific nutrition recommendations regarding food and/or nutrients.
