I try to have a reasonable faith in the medical system, seeing how I’ve invested a great deal of time and money training and practicing in it. But I was a bit shocked a couple days ago. Baby got admitted to our local Children’s Hospital (that I am on staff with) after a 30 minute fever seizure (he’s fine now, mom needs a vacation). I made sure hubby brought all his food so I didn’t have to worry about what “nutrition services” might feed him. Thank goodness I did! Little did I know how much I should have worried! I really wish I would have taken a photo of his meal tray.
Aside from the inappropriateness of feeding salad and raw celery sticks 12 month olds….they basically took a regular meal and substituted soymilk! Granted, a hospital is the place to anaphylax, but I was a bit shocked that a Children’s Hospital couldn’t figure it out. When I recover my sleep and nerves, I’ll probably have a fit of conscience and offer some consultation service to the kitchen.
