The CCTC dietitians have expertise in the nutritional issues of critically ill patients. One of our dietitians follows each CCTC patient to determine the nutrients needed to support the patient's recovery. 

The dietitian works with the physician and nurse to determine the best method of feeding. For patients unable to swallow normally, choices include feeding tube or intravenous formulas. The dietitian monitors laboratory values and patient response to feeding. This information is used to evaluate the effectiveness of the feeding plan and to revise the plan if needed. The dietitian meets with the CCTC team daily to ensure consistency in the overall plan of care.
