99% of the time I bring my own dinner because it's often too busy to get down to the cafeteria before it closes at 7:15 p.m. (7 p.m. on weekends). I usually eat in our staff room where there's a table, chairs, sofa, and fridge. If I can, it's so nice to get off the floor and eat the dinner I've brought in the cafeteria; it's good to have a change of scenery and especially nice if I can eat with co-workers and chat about stuff outside of work, but I'm only able to leave the unit very occassionally.
I'm not a very picky eater and the hospital cafeteria seems to have a good selection and when I've eaten there, it's been good. There are usually two hot entrees with side dishes (2 starches and two vegetables), salad bar, 2 soups, variety of desserts, grill (for burgers or cheesesteaks), and sandwich fixin's that a cafeteria worker will make up, fresh fruit, yogurts, and a variety of drinks. Associates get a discount on their meals, and volunteers get a free meal for every 4 hours they work.
