another joint commission ding, we do not have a dietician consult on all breastfeeding moms. (we do consult if she has multiple risk factors) did not matter that we have br. feeding: classes, numerous handouts, booklets, show films, 2 lactation consultants, follow-up with home health. how are you all handling the nurtitional aspect of your breastfeeding moms?

You bring up an interesting point valene. We always have a lactation consultant on, and mom gets a handout on admission about nutritional guidelines for brst feeding women. But they don't actually get a dietary consult. We kind of just answer questions as we go.
