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 a patient, make sure they speak with
their physician before eating it. Certain foods and medications can interfere
with medical treatments, anesthesia, and surgery.
