Abstract:

A survey of quality assurance practices has been conducted on methods and procedures used to measure the quality of food and food services in 22 nonmilitary hospitals. Acceptability ratings, tray assessments, and sensory evaluations both formal and informal were the principal methods for determining food and food service quality. Recommendations are made to incorporate procedures for measuring quality into military hospital food service contracts.
