Patients aren't allowed to sway from their diets at my facility. Our kitchen is very strict. I got an order for orange soda the other day, it felt very weird to request that from our MD! Diabetics only can order a certain number of carbs at each meal.

Meds are usually not a problem. Give on an empty stomach are scheduled for 7AM which is before the kitchen opens. Before meals is sometimes tricky if the patient is on a weird schedule. Insulin is a sliding scale, techs get FS when patient's order and depending on the number I give the patient their insulin just before they eat. Occasionally it's late but I just state "late breakfast/lunch/dinner" and it never seems to be a problem.

The only diet that is delivery time specific is clear liquids, they have a standard tray they send with each meal.
