Naas General Hospital has launched a campaign to support protected mealtimes for patients.
This follows the launch of the HSE Food, Nutrition and Hydration Policy for Adult Patients in Acute Hospitals yesterday by the Minister for Health Simon Harris T.D.
Naas General Hospital's ‘Mealtimes Matter’ campaign will promote the operation of protected mealtime services.
It is a public and staff awareness campaign, which includes the installation of messaging on lift doors and all non-urgent activities will stop so that hospital staff are available to assist patients with their meals
Protected mealtimes will operate at the following times:
· Breakfast: 8.15am to 8.45am
· Lunch: 12.30pm to 1.00pm
· Tea: 5.00pm to 5.30pm
