Health Professionals Use Math for Problem Solving
The hospital dietician acts as the facilitator between the doctorÝs orders and the cookÝs recipes. It is the dieticianÝs job to make sure that the food delivered to the patient meets the medical orders from the doctor.
Sometimes the doctor will order food or liquid in one measurement while the cook measures it in another. It is the dieticianÝs job to convert the measurements.
- If a doctor orders 100 grams of meat protein for a patientÝs dinner, how many ounces is that?
- If a doctor orders 300 cc of fluid, how many ounces of water is that?
- If a doctor ordered 100 ml of jello, how much is that in English kitchen units?
