Education, training, and monitoring of all staff and volunteers involved in food service, as well as establishing effective infection control and quality assurance programs help maintain safe food handling practices in the healthcare setting. As culture change progresses and our nursing homes transform into more home-like environments, most employees will be involved in food service.
