Clinical, Long Term Care, and Food Service Rotations
At Holy Spirit Hospital, I was exposed to various disease states, and learned how Medical Nutrition Therapy could help improve each
patient's progress. During my clinical rotations, I learned the importance of working with the multi-disciplinary team, to help tackle all
aspects of a patient's health. In addition, I was given the opportunity to shadow various Registered Dietitians in Holy Spirit's outpatient
facility, which made me realize how much I truly love one-on-one nutrition counseling.
Long Term Care:
Throughout my Long Term Care Rotation, I became more familiar with skilled nursing facilities, and how they differ from acute care. I had particular interest in learning more about documentation in a long term care facility, and learning more about the MDS. It was incredible forming relationships with the residents, and seeing the care and compassion that each and every staff member had at Bethany Village.
