"While a patient is in ICU, dieticians work alongside doctors in the provision of healthcare, monitoring and advising on nutritional treatments such as intravenous, nasogastric or supplemental sip feeds. Nutritional treatment is often part of a patient’s recovery schedule once he or she has been discharged from the ICU/High Care, and a dietician plays a key role in this phase too. The dietician might follow your progress in the ward, where vital diet information relating to your surgery will be explained "
