Patient’s nutritional status
Choose a healthcare facility and create a report about the facilityâ??s policies and procedures for tracking patients with nutritional risks.
Can you please assist me with the following information:
How does your facility screen patients for nutritional risk?
What nutritional risk criteria are used to trigger a referral to a Registered Dietician (RD)?
Who is responsible for assessing a patient’s nutritional status?
How is nutrition integrated into the nursing plan?
What anthropometric measurements are routinely recorded in your facility? How often are these measurements monitored?
What are some common nutritional interventions used in your facility?
How are outcomes commonly monitored?
