But patients on the floor who were neutropenic could not have food prepared outside the hospital, and chemotherapy would affect when the date nights could occur as the patient couldn’t have too much to eat before treatment or needed time after to recover.Recently, after hearing about the date nights, the hospital’s dietary department met with nurses and offered to make any meals the patients wanted, Adamo said. For example, one patient was delayed because a port was being taken out, but the dietary department waited to make the order until the patient was ready.

The nurses also have provided two date nights for patients who aren’t married.

The date nights bring back a dose of reality to the patients, said Taylor Adamo, BSN, RN, interim nurse manager at Stony Brook.
