| Nutrition plays an important role in your overall treatment and recovery, so we make sure that the foods we serve are balanced to fit your needs while you are in the hospital. Your physician will let the Dietary Department know the type of diet you will need during your stay. Types of diets your physician may order for you include Diabetic (consistent carbohydrate diet), Low Sodium/Low Cholestoral or Regular (balanced). ACMH follows the FDA’s Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Counseling and/or a special nutrition plan will also be created for you by a registered dietitian if needed.|
If you are staying for more than one day, you will be given a menu to choose what you would like for breakfast the following morning. The breakfast items you choose will be served unless a test or other condition changes the foods you can eat. Return the completed menu to the dietary or nursing staff or a hospital volunteer.
You will be served lunch and dinner based on the type of diet your physician has chosen for you. A card will be given to you so that you can let us know what you like and don’t like to eat. Because of our small size it is hard for us to offer more that one main dish for lunch and dinner. If you do not like what is being served we will gladly bring you something else.
If you need a change from the regular daily menu, you can ask your nurse to request one of the following: *Chef Salad *Cold Sandwich *Soup *Yogurt/Fruit *Stuffed Baked Potato
Meals should be served by the times listed below. Please notify your nurse if you do not receive a meal.
Patients with special dietary needs will receive daily scheduled snacks at the times listed below. Please notify your nurse if you would like to receive a snack.
Our entire dietary staff is here to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Please feel free to ask your nurse to contact the Dietary Department should you have any questions or needs.
One free meal is provided to a parent staying with a child age 12 or younger for the length of the child’s stay.
Complimentary coffee is available in the cafeteria from 6:00am to 6:00pm. Most times any nursing station will have coffee or will gladly brew a pot for you. Just ask!
Vending machines are available 24-hours a day and are located outside of the Emergency Department entrance.
