What’s Your Patient Having for Lunch?

Chances are that lunch for many hospitalized patients is not being delivered on a tray.

They may be receiving their meals via Enteral Nutrition where food is delivered through a tube through the nose into the stomach or small intestine.  Or they could be receiving all their calories and nutrients via a vein – that is called Parenteral Nutrition.

Regardless of whether lunch arrives on a tray or is delivered intravenously or through a tube – there are specialized Clinical Nutritionists who develop the nutrition plan!  Proper nutrition is an important therapy in the hospital setting.  Clinical Nutritionists are highly trained clinical team members who strive to improve patient healing and recovery. 

March 19 – Noon-1:00PM ~~ The Link in front of the Library

Help us celebrate National Nutrition Month.  Meet our clinical nutritionists and learn more about what YOUR patients are having for lunch!

Hidden Medieval Manuscript Found in Library

IMG_3416_1Historical collections staff at the Claude Moore Health Sciences Library have discovered two pages from a medieval European manuscript hidden among its rare books. The pages, which remain unidentified, were found when a University of Virginia medical student requested to view a book in the library that was printed in 1550. Staff members pulled the volume for the student and found that the boards from the book’s binding were detached from the spine and cover, thus revealing two medieval manuscript pages. Library staff members believe that the book binding is original and that the manuscript pages had remained hidden inside the binding for over 450 years. It was common in the early years of printing for European book binders to use old manuscripts as binding material.

Until this week, staff members had believed that the oldest object in the Health Sciences Library was a printed book from 1493, but this latest discovery may prove that even older works have been with us all along. The library is now working to translate, date, and identify the new finds and will publish what staff members discover in the Moore Library News at a later date.
