The dietetics department in OMI provides dietary consultation to Inpatients as well as Outpatients. All patients are visited by the clinical dietician shortly after admission. Dieticians discuss eating habits, food allergies and dietary modification according to the patients needs during the hospital stay and after discharge from the hospital.
In the ICU patients are on special care so every diet should be served under the supervision of the dietician. Meals are according to the patients' condition, requirements and the physician advice. At the time of discharge patients, who are on a modified diet are given a discharge dietary plan which comprises a sample menu and general recommendations. This discharge dietary plan is explained by the dietician to the patient and their attendants.
