Somerset (NJ) Medical Center has launched a bedside dining program that serves patients meals of their choice from a café-style cart, reports the Somerset Reporter. Piloted in the Medical Center’s John and Mary Obzansky Pavilion, the program lets staffers deliver meals to patient rooms straight from a cart that goes directly to the wards. It allows patients to change orders at the last minute or exchange meals. The cart stores both hot and cold foods, from chicken picatta to chilled salads.
The program was launched in July and will be expanded to other units through the rest of the year. Patients across Somerset already have a bedside menu and can order room service meals anytime between 11 a.m. and 6:30 p.m.
