The Clinical Nutrition and Therapeutic department in our hospital has a team of highly qualified dieticians. The department is headed by Mrs. Mini Mary Prakash (RD, PGDN), assisted by an assistant dietician, a therapeutic dietician and 3 junior dieticians.
The primary duty of dieticians includes assessment of nutritional status of inpatients and outpatients and detailed diet coun-selling. Reassessment of patient is also carried out until the discharge of inpatients. In outpatient clinic, fat monitoring is done for obese patients followed by monthly follow-up for diet counselling and monitoring improvements. The outstanding work in our department is diet counselling of all inpatients followed by detailed prescription and instruction of diet to be followed in diet chart.
The therapeutic dietician supervises the activities in canteen and food services for inpatients. Our team of dedicated dieticians actively participate in various camps conducted by the hospital.
