Nursing team--I have been a RN for many years. Our hospital has decided to embrace the concept of room service (although I know that some of you may feel--hospital first hotel second--many patients do eat more nutrioously for wound healing when the patient can pick his own meals. Evidenced based research tends to support this). I am hoping for those RN out there whose hospitals have room service--you all can give me some guidance on issues you have had concerning patient room service. Any helpful hints that would help both the nursing team and dietitians as we begin our quest. Pro and cons of the system and if you ahd ulimited powers--what would you fix...
AS you have figured --I am the RN on the room service team :-).
Thank you in advacne for your help
