Dietary & Kitchen

The Dietary and Kitchen feature assists you to manage meal services and diet for all types of patients, hospital employees and staff. It integrates with the in-patient functionality of the MIMSYS system and allows patients to customise their dietary options. It helps people choose, customise and follow their diet. There are several supported diets, for example Cardiac Diet, Normal Diet, Diabetic Diet, Renal Diet with details given for each.

Meal scheduling

Daily menu scheduling for the patients can be entered and reviewed according to the changes prescribed. By default, the meal of the previous day is scheduled for the patient. However, if the diet is to be changed, diet scheduling can be used to make the required changes. The changes made are followed for subsequent days till further changes are made. This option is also used for changing the already prescribed diet to the patient.

Meal cancellation

The diet cancellation can be used to annul the diet prescribed for that patient. However, a cancellation can be done only within 24 hours of the discharge of the patient. After 24 hours the diet cannot be cancelled.

Diet requisition slip

This option can generate a ward statement of the diet required by each patient. This can be printed from the diet kitchen. Once printed in the morning (configurable), it will print the patient’s diet requirement for the next 24 hours.

Diet cancellation report

This generates the list of the diets that have been cancelled during the past 24 hours. Based on this, the kitchen staff can alter the quantity of diets that have to be prepared.

Late admission report

This is prepared for those patients who are admitted after the diet is prescribed. Once the diet is prescribed, the diet kitchen will print it just before the diet is given to the patients.

Therapeutic diet

The diet kitchen will print the therapeutic diet details prescribed by the dietitian to different patients.
