Hospital food does not make people sick. Hospital food has certain requirements that it has to meet for each patient. It has to have a certain caloric value and nutrient value. I can appear to be bland because it has to be substance for many different palates.

Best Answer

Any bulk food preparation and delivery service produces bad food.

Best Answer

Generally this should not be the case, and if proven, is grounds for suing.

Several possibilities :-

Patient's dietary needs were not checked, recorded and relayed to kitchen.

Lack of hygiene in kitchen or transport.

Cost cutting and/or over cooking has removed nutritive value from food.

Patient requires greater nourishment in order to repair injury or fight illness, or has nutritional deficits from poor diet in normal life, or problems like diabetes, anaemia or osteoporosis.

As others have said, hospitals vary. I heard on ABC of one hospital in the States so famous for good outcomes that its insurance company asks 25% less, and it passes these savings on to its customers. I listened to an interview with the head honcho. He said after doing a survey of adverse events, they decided on a policy of spending more money in order to prevent over tiredness in staff, and have best equipment and supplies. They also decided to always admit every mistake, apologise and pay for correction. This resulted in massive drop of adverse event, and also massive drop in cases brought against them. Unfortunately, being Australian, I neglected to remember the name of the hospital.

some hospitals are better than others

Best Answer

That's true. I was in a different hospital once and the food was excellent. They even had steak on the menu.

I haven't heard of this before!

I never got the fear of school or hospital food as they are quite delicious. I think for hospital food, people probably have the idea that becuase it's a hospital, the food is probably contaminated because of all the sickness, or that the food is degraded becuase it's not like a fancy restaurant food. I enjoy them both and If I could, I would get a plate every chance I get.
