Your food service will include a menu of wholesome, nourishing and well-balanced meals that are an important part of your treatment and recovery. BCMH makes every effort to provide nutritious meals that are prepared according to your doctor's orders.

Patients are served at the following times:

Occasionally your meal may be delayed if you are scheduled for a special test or treatment. Whenever possible, you will be served after your examination or test.

You will be provided with a food selection menu from which you can select your meal choices. If you have difficult y making menu selections, a member of the Nutrition Services Department will be happy to help you. Call 5262 for assistance. If you do not like any of the menu choices, additional selections are listed on an Alternative Menu in your room.  If you prefer one of the alternate choices, please write it on your menu, call Nutrition Services at 5262 or ask your nurse. Patients on a specially prescribed diet will receive menus tailored to their specific needs.

If a family member or friend would like to eat in your room with you, they may purchase a lunch ticket at the information desk. They may then go to the cafeteria and either select their food to be delivered to the room or get a meal tray and take it back to your room.
