Abstract: OUR HEAD of nutrition recently presented a 'protected meal-times initiative' at a ward sisters' meeting. This is designed to ensure patients are undisturbed and that wards are quiet during mealtimes. The ensuing discussion revealed significant disagreement as to whether visitors were helpful, or a nuisance ( Baker 2003 ).
