I think it is great that hospitals are trying to make your stay pleasant with its "Dining on Call" programs. Patients no longer pick between mystery meat or green gelatin. They can order anything, and as much as they want, from the leather-bound menu found in every room. And they can
have it whenever they want it, usually between 7a.m. to 7p.m. All they have to do is pick up the phone.
Forty-five minutes later, room service. Pancakes for dinner. No problem.
Brisket for breakfast, you've got it. Ziti with meat sauce as a midafternoon snack. Of course.
Women who have just had babies are especially appreciative. New moms
are very hungry.
Parents of pediatric patients can call from home to order for their hospitalized kids. Family members can order for elderly patients.
They have said that people do take advantage of the system by overeating. Thats when a dietitian will pay that particular patient a visit and find out what's really going on.
