Dietitian (Inpatient)

If you stay in an Essentia Health hospital, your care team may include a licensed and registered dietitian.

During Your Hospital Stay

Your food choices can affect your ability to heal. Rely on your hospital-based dietitians to create meal plans that:

  • Follow your doctor’s requirements
  • Meet your personalized needs
  • Provide enough energy and nutrients

Options to Deliver Nutrition

If can’t feed yourself or need help getting enough energy and nutrients, you may benefit from:

  • Intravenous lines
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Tube feedings

Education & Support

Count on your hospital-based dietitian to teach you how to make healthy changes at home—so you can continue getting the nutrition you need to support your recovery after leaving the hospital.

If you need additional nutrition guidance after going home, ask about appointments with an outpatient dietitian.
