Consistency Modification

Consistency modifications allow you to tell MealTracker how you want to handle each consistency for each master item. The consistency section appears on the lower right corner of the master food item information.

DON'T SERVE: The item may not be given to a resident with the indicated consistency requirement.

REGULAR: No modification is necessary.

MODIFIED: GROUND, CHOPPED or PUREED can be chosen for each consistency adjustment.

INSTEAD: You can choose a specific substitute item to be served for the indicated consistency requirement.

If you have a resident's consistency adjustment correctly selected, when Auto-select is performed the system will automatically match the resident's consistency information to the consistency instruction for the food items.

For details, see the section Consistency Adjustments in Change Resident Profile.
