I have never stayed in hospital but this morning I was watching a tv programme about hospital food. It looks really awful :sick:

Have you been in hospital, if so, how was the food?

LOL :)

Hospital food isn't that bad, maybe that's because I live in The City of London & they might put a bit more money & time into the food, LOL :)

I had some hospital food after my 2 wrist opertaions & both times the food was nice :)

My Nanny was is hospital last year & it was still good food, but she was so unwell it was a nightmare to get her to eat or drink anything, LOL :)<br><br>Post edited by: Scott_1984, at: 2007/11/29 23:16

Hospital food - it's enough to make you sick


Thick, salty soup with the texture of wallpaper paste; a pie crust, hiding a serving of mechanically recovered 'meat' and dry mash. Is this the best patients can hope for?

Thick, salty soup that looks like wallpaper paste, clearly made from artificially flavoured powder; a chicken-and-ham pie boasting a crust with all the texture of furniture foam and none of the flavour; inside, a meagre serving of misshapen, mechanically recovered 'meat' and a white sauce that is as claggy as the soup; dry mashed potato; over-cooked cabbage; a brick of cake with custard served cold.
It's enough to make you sick. Or it would have been for Poppy Lloyd, a 26-year-old radio journalist, if she hadn't been so sick already. Confined in the isolation ward of a central London hospital a few months ago, she was at the mercy of the hospital caterers. And they showed her none.

Definitely Australia. Hospital food is way better anywhere in the World than in USA. In USA, if the doctors and nurses don't kill you, the kitchen staff will.

I can certainly agree about the food in the US. I've had several surgeries over the last decade and figure if you can keep the food down, you're going to live. I did find out a secret, though. The general dining room for hospital staff and visitors made wonderful home made soups. So, twice daily I would have a family member go and get me soup and bread. Then I found a nurse that would do it. No more mystery meat for me!

George has been in quite a few hospitals in London, and couldn't really eat the food, apart from breakfast. So most days I would take him food in. I wasn't the only one.
I had a friend in a pyschiatric hospital, and she used to send out for pizza most days.
