I read with pleasure the study by Schiavone et al1 which explored patient satisfaction and expectation on food quality and food service as well as food wastage in two obstetrics and gynecology wards in Italy. The  authors should be thanked and congratulated for providing insight into healthcare quality improvement factors in patient-centred service delivery; additionally, their focus on food wastage is highly relevant in the context of sustainable healthcare. I would like to put forward some comments regarding this study.
