RISK REDUCTION THROUGH PATIENT FOOD SAFETY
The hospitals that are transforming health care put patient safety above all.
NATIONAL PATIENT SAFETY FOUNDATION
The ability to link recipes to allergens and diet restrictions is a true patient safety measure. The patient’s menu is corrected for both by the system…eliminating the potential human error and keeping our meals accurate and individualized for the patient.
Safeguards are put in place to ensure that no one from the general patient population misses more than one meal and high risk diet patients are not missing meals.
HALTON HEALTHCARE SERVICES
Because nutrition is the foundation of our software, nutrition services can rest assured that patients are secure with features that:
- Trigger alerts with patient wristband scanning
- Customize tray tickets
- Monitor tray location with dashboard reporting
- Automatically substitute items not allowed in a patient’s menu
- Utilize the HL7 interface for real-time updates
Hospitals utilizing HACCP software in their operations can also maintain food quality and compliance safety standards by implementing Computrition’s foodservice software. With easy-to-use drop-down functionality, food and nutrition staff can quickly access all HACCP plans tied to a recipe through the ingredient and method tab. Making patient food safety the primary focus at multiple points in foodservice operations.
Employees and patient guests must also be included in safety initiatives as retail sales make up a significant amount of foodservice revenue. However, with the high volume of retail patrons, comes an even higher risk.
The seamless integration capabilities of Computrition’s automation, allow sites to display ingredients and allergens in a variety of ways. From FDA-compliant labels on grab-n-go’s to digital menu boards displayed outside restaurants to accessible mobile menus in patron hands, these solutions help patrons make informed decisions. As a result of automation, risk reduction becomes a hospital-wide effort!
