🏨 Patient Foodservice Choice 🍎

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments




Have you heard?

New Federal Rules that took effect in late fall 2016 have impacted how facilities offer nutrition services to their residents.

Centers are now required to provide “person-centric” care, with their populations now granted more say in the many alternatives for their lives, not the least of which are their meals!

Nursing homes, in particular are mandated to provide their residents the power to select from an array of food choices.

This, in turn, presents challenges for the foodservice and nutrition teams for both selection and delivery.

Lakeside has rushed into the void created, with a new offering: the Suzy Q Cart.

It will have its NY/NJ area debut on April 4th at our event (which you are welcome to attend):
