Nutritional Counseling

A Registered Dietician works with patients and caregivers in assuring the patient is following a therapeutic, nutritionally sound diet.  This is accomplished through:

  • Assessing individual patient caloric and nutritional requirements for nutrition taken orally or through a feeding tube.
  • Instructing the patient and/or caregiver on a therapeutic diet.
  • Assessing the patient’s and/or caregiver’s ability to obtain, prepare and eat the diet prescribed by the physician:
    • Suggesting an Occupational Therapy referral for identified physical debilities preventing the patient from getting the proper nutrients.
    • Suggesting a Speech Therapy referral for swallowing difficulties preventing proper nutrition.
    • Suggesting a Medical Social Worker referral if financial constraints prevents the patient from obtaining food.
