I visit a number of hospitals in my position, and the food ranges from ghastly to good (no greats, I'm afraid) There is one hospital that has great french fries, pretty good grilled sandwiches, and a very nice salad bar, so I like that the best. Another has lots of variety, which I like. Our Children's Hospital offers a rinky dink salad bar, a pasta bar that caters those who like their pasta limp and their sauces grease laden, and a hot bar with fully amped heating lamps that cook the life out of everything that's offered. Also, it is only open till 8, since parents aren't likely to be staying late visiting their children and needing a cup of coffee or other sustinence. Oh wait. Yes, they are. Huh! The worst of all, though, I must say, is the hospital that treated my husband for three days back in October. Don't get me wrong, the quality of care was very good. But the food is just disgusting. You know its a bad sign when you can't even identify what you're eating! He was in for cardiac symptoms, and they were feeding him gravy drenched pot pie (what the **** that meat filling was is anyone's guess), macaroni and cheese and mashed potatoes and gravy. I made the mistake of taking my son down to the cafeteria for a sandwich. You wouldn't think that its possible to mess up a ham sandwich, but apparently, it is!
