As a reputable healthcare institution, you hope to provide the most comprehensive care possible to your patients and improve your Hospital Consumer Assessment of Healthcare Providers and Systems (HCAHPS) scores. In order to do this, you need to put a greater focus on encouraging your patients to commit to better nutrition habits. Not only can increased nutrition promote better overall health and wellness physically, mentally, and emotionally, but in doing so it also significantly reduces lengthy hospital stays and frequency of readmission for patients.
Avoid Processed Food
Bisphenol A (BPA), MSG, and Butylated hydroxyanisole (BHA) are just a few of the most common chemical additives found in almost every processed food. These, and other unnatural food additives, have been linked to countless conditions, including autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular conditions, cancers, infertility issues in both men and women, not to mention diabetes, obesity, and more. These, in some cases life-threatening, conditions continue to spread at increasing rates all because people make the grave mistake of throwing caution to the wind when it comes to choosing their meals, and yet all too often healthcare providers who see their patient’s suffering as a result of these easily repairable diet-related conditions do little to effectively treat the root cause of the problem, resulting in little effect to their long-term health. With millions of people being affected every day simply by what they eat, it is essential now more than every for healthcare providers to stand up and lead the way to better health through an emphasis on increased nutrition.
Better nutrition is about giving the human body what it needs to thrive. Much like a car that would break down without fresh oil, the human body can begin to shut down without proper nutrition, causing diseases and other serious health problems. The best thing you can do for the health of your patients is to allow them the opportunity to learn how to change their own life for the better through nutritional education, and provide them with the necessary resources they need to make those changes at home. By showing patients how their personal eating habits directly contribute to their current health concerns, what kind of changes they can make at home to eat healthier, access to community supported agriculture, and how to avoid unwanted ingredients in their food, and where to find comprehensive support should they need it, healthcare institutions can positively impact their community and help men, women, children, and seniors alike enjoy a healthier life free from any recurrent or extensive hospital stays.
