Malnutrition and dehydration, caused by a lack of proper nutrition and fluids, can lead to infections, confusion and muscle weakness. These symptoms can result in immobility, falls, pressure ulcers, pneumonia and a weak immune system.
Evidence shows that malnutrition and dehydration contribute to avoidable harm to the people that we care for. It is our duty to provide well-balanced and palatable meals to residents that deliver adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals, proteins and calories. This is a challenge and encompasses the whole spectrum of care, including primary and secondary care, from patients who can eat and drink a normal diet to those the need complex nutritional support.
Do you know to:
- the major risk factors that increase the chance of suffering from Malnutrition and Dehydration?
- the telling symptoms of Malnutrition and Dehydration?
- what is involved in diagnosis and risk screening?
- the best ways to reverse the processes?
- if your current system successfully supports the provision of good nutritional care, as well as current regulatory standards?
