Food for the Heart at KSB by Linda Setchell, Dietary Director
After Dave’s post about the Super bowl, he motivated me to write a post about Dietary and Valentine’s Day:
Dietary’s heart is in the right place. We work hard for our patients to provide the correct diet, good food and great service. The only thing a patient really gets to choose while in our care is their food selections. We have to follow the Doctors orders and that does not always go along with the patient’s choices 🙂
The dietary supervisors pick up the floor sheets, they make calls to the floors throughout the day to verify diets and they deliver trays as needed to take care of our patients. Sometimes it may appear that we are being a pest but in reality our “heart” is in the right place!
After our patients are taken care of, our next goal is to take care of our KSB family and the community we serve. We try very hard to offer “heart healthy” options in the cafeteria, to the special functions we serve, to the Meals on Wheels participants and to all the community members that we serve.
Dietary has a passion to create a fun and caring environment at KSB and throughout the community. We do our very best every day to take care of our patients needs with the correct diet, to provide food in a safe manner to meet the IDPH regulations and to serve good food!
Thanks to all of you who stop in and enjoy a “taste” of our hospital food! Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day and a year filled with “heart” health!
