Dietary Of The Presbyterian Hospital, New York, 1901

Although the diet is very satisfactory and ample at the Presbyterian Hospital, New York, the food allowance per capita for patients is not separately estimated, and the house diet, convalescent diet, and diet for the servants on pages 796-797 are all originally prepared in bulk, and subsequently subdivided by the cooks and nurses under the order of the visiting physicians and surgeons, but without regard as to accurate measurement of quantity in ounces.

The diet sheet on page 798 is in daily use in the wards at the Presbyterian Hospital, New York city. It will be observed that it is properly classified according to quality as well as quantity. It was introduced several years ago after a careful comparison with diets of other institutions, and it has proved very practical. It is the most liberal and best-classified diet of any hospital with which I am familiar.
