Is your hospital prepared?
Committed to You
The Sweetest Life International helps hospitals through Patient Conflict Resolution™. TSL provides labels designed to help find cleaner living options in cafeterias and room dining services.
Our assessments are designed to help navigate cleaner living decisions.
Menu Ingredients Assessments
TSL assesses cafeteria and on-campus dining services options for clean living compatibility by screening for allergen-free options. TSL’s sample of standards include options without gluten, soy, dairy and added sugar.
TSL makes ingredient substitution recommendations if necessary to make cleaning living dining options more readily accessible and available for patients under a hospital’s care.
Cleaner Living Labelling
TSL provides cleaning living labelling on menus and dining options to help patients make educated, easier decisions for those choosing a cleaner living lifestyle when it comes to eating. Labels help avoid confusion, unnecessary calls to staff and saved time for hospitals to not answer questions that could have been avoided with a label.
Over the past few years, several doctors have spoken out about the lack of healthy food options and how frustrating it can be to tell their patients to make dietary changes, only to have that guidance undermined by the very hospital treating their patients.
Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition
Hospital malnutrition affects 30-50% of patients worldwide, according to a September 2019 study published in the Journal of Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition. “Often patients enter the hospital malnourished or at risk of malnutrition and experience nutrition decline during their stay, placing them at higher risk for adverse outcomes following hospital discharge,”
Physician’s Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM)
The food served in regular hospital cafeterias often isn’t much better; in the same 2015 report, PCRM analyzed cafeteria menus and patient meal plans, and found that they often included processed meats and items high in sugar, salt, and cholesterol.
