The dietitians plan, direct and monitor the fulfilment of diets required for the treatment of certain diseases and assess the nutritional sufficiency of diets.
Patients are admitted to dietitians' practices via the outpatient clinics and wards of Tyks
- by a referral
- urgent cases without a referral
- by an agreed treatment practice
Dietitian visits are scheduled by appointment or the dietitian can visit the patient in an inpatient ward. The guidance can happen individually or in group therapy.
Our services include
- the assessment of the patient's diet's nutritional sufficiency based on an interview or a food diary
- the compilation and monitoring the fulfilment of the patient's diet plan
- the development of nutritional therapy in the hospital district (patient meals, nutritional therapy practices, education of the staff)
A clinic fee or a continuing treatment fee is collected from our patients. Doctor visits of inpatient ward patients are included in the daily inpatient fee.
