Kicking McDonald's out: the hospitals getting serious about food, Huffington Post. #nurseup #diet #healthcare #nursefriendly

Kicking McDonald's out: the hospitals getting serious about food, Huffington Post:"All across the country, hospitals like this one in San Francisco are rethinking what's on its menu and in the cafeterias. Prompted by skyrocketing rates of diet-related illnesses and with ever greater understanding of the role of good nutrition, public health professionals are starting to get serious about food.
In the past few months, hospitals are even stepping up to tell junk food purveyors to leave the premises.

The hospital CEO said that having a McDonald's right next to its revamped, healthier cafeteria, sends an "inconsistent message."
