Hospital "food"

Jamie - love your work at improving school meals and waking people up to the junk they're eating.

Had 2 parents in hospital this year - awful food - both lost 15-20 pounds (not big people to start with).  Food cooked in city about 60 miles away and presumably nuked to reheat - inedible and served in containers difficult to open.  Unopened packages (e.g. milk cartons, pudding cups) are thrown out for hygiene reasons. 

Poor nutrition caused anemia, sluggish bowels, gaunt faces, weakness.  Hospital system budgets low amount per day per patient but poor nuttrition leads to costs post-discharge for extra medical care needed.  Also colossal waste of money in discarded food. 

Sounds like another job for Jamie to tackle!

Re: Hospital "food"

I have been in hospital overnight once in my life for no real reason. I was served khao tom moo which is rice soup with pork (apparently because I saw very little pork). Luckily I was discharged the following day before breakfast.
