This article features Mary O'Connell, director of food and nutrition services at United Odd Fellow & Rebekah Home in New York. O'Connell is overseeing the construction of a brand new kitchen that is slated to open in June 2007. One of the features of the kitchen is the tray line to accommodate her buffet service concept. O'Connell has also strengthened her department's links to the weekly Resident Care Plan Meetings since, as a dietitian, she knew there were clinical issues that needed to be addressed.
