About Inpatient Diets

Hospital patients have specific dietary needs based on their condition and the recommendations of their physician. You may be curious to know what these various diets are, and what notations such as Low Sodium Diet or Gluten Free Diet really mean if you see them on the patient's meal tray.

If you would like to bring food to patient, make sure they speak with their physician before eating it. Certain foods and medications can interfere with medical treatments, anesthesia, and surgery.
