Early mobilization for acute stroke and acquired brain injury patients helps reduce frustration and improve their socialization with family and caregivers. Thanks to a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, the Rehabilitation Stroke Team has two new specialized wheelchairs that support these clients more comfortably and safely, and help promote quicker progress getting into and out of bed independently.
The Nutrition and Food Service team works collaboratively to ensure food is of high quality, nutritious and safe as well as compliant to prescribed diet orders.
Patient meals and snacks are prepared fresh by certified cooks and trained staff, using the cook/chill method.
Meal delivery times are approximately:
Each unit is equipped with a pantry kitchenette, stocked with items for patient consumption.
Meals are based on a menu cycle. If you have food preferences or allergies please inform your primary care provider, nurse, or dietitian. The Nutrition and Food Service Department is pleased to offer Expressly For You, a room service program where patients are able to place their meal orders through a Host/Hostess using iPad technology.
