Avoid patient malnutrition with better hospital food

Many hospitals have made steps to improve the food served to patients, but there’s more work that needs to be done. According to new research, patients are becoming malnourished during hospital stays because they aren’t eating their meals – and this can have a negative impact on their care. 

What your hospital can do to promote healthy eating for patients

Hospital food gets a bad rap, and it’s not entirely undeserved. Many facilities have bland food, and often it’s not as nutritious as providers or patients might want it to be. But healthy food can be expensive, and some hospitals may not have the money or resources to access quality ingredients. 

More hospitals purchasing antibiotic-free meat

Hospitals have been tasked with limiting their antibiotic use because of the development of drug-resistant superbugs. While most facilities just cut back on prescriptions, some hospitals have gone the extra mile to expose patients to even fewer antibiotics by making changes with the meat they serve. 

More hospitals provide healthier food options for all

Hospitals are tasked with improving patients’ health, but the food they serve to both patients and visitors may occasionally fall short of that goal.
