Event Details



Serving food in a safe and sanitary manner is so much more than simply wearing gloves and ensuring food temperatures are warm or cold enough. This regulation has been among the top five deficiencies for several months. This session will review the regulations that relate to food service including staff competencies, ensuring temperatures are safe for the type of food being served, and the portions served are in accordance with the therapeutic menu.


  • Establish competencies dietary staff must maintain. 
  • Review examples of noncompliance with food safety and sanitation. 
  • Outline strategies for ensuring adequate portion sizes are delivered during meal service.
