“No one disputes that nutrition is central to having and sustaining good health,” began Danielle Snider, MS, RD, manager of clinical nutrition for Scripps Health in California. “Even so, registered dietitians are still a more recent profession in the hospital atmosphere, and because of that we are some of the last clinicians to be privileged in responsible care for the patient.”
Snider refers to a recent ruling by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) which will allow registered dietitians (RDs) to order therapeutic diets and even nutrition-related laboratory tests beginning July 11, 2014. Currently, RDs provide suggestions to physicians, physician assistants or nurse practitioners who then have the responsibility to write the orders.
