Introduction

Specialty healthcare staffing firm Sunbelt Staffing has released imagery from their new campaign, Hospital Meals Around the World, today in celebration of Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Day, March 14.

Main Digest

Sunbelt Staffing compiled research from individual hospital menus and government guidelines on nutritional requirements from countries including Switzerland, Mexico, Canada and the United Kingdom to recreate a typical evening meal for patients in each country.

The campaign aims to both raise awareness around the importance of a nutritional meal as part of a patient's healing process, as well as to give American consumers a better understanding of how their global neighbors' meals compare during a typical hospital stay.

Howard Gerber from Sunbelt Staffing Commented

"We staff healthcare professionals in various divisions within the hospital. From nurses, to doctors, to pharmacists, to nutritionists, they all agree on the importance of nutritious meals to aid in patients' recovery and wellness, even after they have been discharged. Whether you're going through a highly complicated procedure or dealing with a minor complaint, food really does make a difference in how the body performs and recovers. And for those currently on medication, good nutritional advice is key for avoiding potentially fatal drug interactions."

"We can learn so much from how other cultures and professionals help patients recover, so we thought it was a great idea to think outside the box and to show Americans just what else they could expect from a menu should they find themselves in a hospital abroad."
