I had the need to stay with a friend overnight in a very nice private hospital here in Athens this week. The service and all of the healthcare staff were great and, thankfully, my friend is now home recovering from a small, scheduled surgery. I have experienced other hospitals, in and out of Greece, and there is a similar problem – the nutritional value of the food. It is about time for the hospital dieticians and doctors to step up and start looking at the bigger picture. I have heard of health coaches working with hospital dieticians, in America, to increase quality but hadn’t thought much of the problem until this experience.
