Food, Fluid and Nutrition

Food and fluid gives our body energy to allow us to carry out our everyday tasks. Delivering the right amount of food and fluid to our patients is an important role of the HCSW. In your first few shifts on the ward, work with the mealtime coordinator at meal service and find out what’s available for patients, and how to help them with their meals. By supporting people to eat and drink ‘what's normal for them’ we can help them recover from their illness or surgery and get out of hospital sooner.
