For Critical Access Hospitals, manpower is at a premium. You need to make do with what you have while still being compared to the quality and service of any other hospital no matter how big or small. “Spare” FTEs are not available to test and develop recipes, or change and update your patient menus, which limits the options and quality for your patients.
