Clinical Dietitians in Hospitals

Dietitians are part of your health care team, since nutrition plays an important role in one’s recovery from illness or injury.  Clinical dietitians in hospitals assess patients’ nutrition needs and make nutrition care plans. Care plans may involve providing optimal nutrition care during one’s hospital stay, educating patients that require a special diet or coordinating nutrition care once they leave the hospital.

How do you see a dietitian in Hospital?

All patients are screened for nutrition risk after being admitted. Those patients that are screened at nutritional risk will be assessed by a dietitian. Health care staff may also consult a dietitian at anytime. To learn more about the referral criteria professionals use click here.  Patients and families can also request to see a dietitian.
