So tomorrow, I'm assigned to care for a patient on the med/surg floor with an admitting diagnosis of "Ulcerative Colitis with Exacerbation". Simple enough, right?
The patient's charts say their diet is "Soft, low fiber". So what should I be doing when their breakfast and lunch come in (other than measuring the Is and Os)? Am I supposed to puree any food? Or can they eat it as is?
