The goal of the Nutritional Services Department at AMH is to provide meals which are nutritious, appropriate for your specific diet, safe and attractive. Your doctor and your dietitian will work together to determine which diet may be most beneficial for you for your specific medical condition. The dietitians may conduct a nutrition assessment and explain the relationship between your diet and your medical condition. During your hospital stay, they will meet with you, and your caregivers if desired, to provide meal-planning information and education to assist you in complying with the diet which the doctor has prescribed for you to follow when you go home.
A representative from the Nutritional Services Department will be collecting your menus daily. If you are prescribed a special diet, this may require changes to your meal selections. We will substitute the appropriate foods when this occurs, based on your food preferences. Please inform the staff of any special food preferences or restrictions that you follow based on personal, cultural or religious reasons. We will make every effort to honor your choices, but occasionally we may have to make substitutions. The Nutritional Services Department also prepares and stocks numerous food items available for patients while the kitchen is closed.

Visiting Hour Policy
We understand the concern a patient’s family or loved ones have and we have made an attempt to provide flexible visiting hours. However, because of a patient’s need for rest and privacy during and after certain procedures and routine care, we may request your absence from the patient’s room when it is deemed to be in the best interest of the patient.
For patients in the Critical Care Unit, a visitor’s length of stay is determined by the physician or nursing staff with respect to a patient’s condition.
