The dietician should place an envelope on the patient's room door for the collection of all the patient's menu.... The patient's daily menu should be saved by the nursing personnel in the envelopes... The amount of each food item eaten should be recorded on each menu by a member of the nursing staff collecting the tray. Calculation of daily intake of calories and protein based on menus saved.."
