Managing under-nutrition in a nursing home setting.

Abstract

This article considers interventions and strategies used to manage the problems of an undernourished older adult residing in a nursing home. A brief introduction to the patient is followed by a discussion of the process of identifying care needs, and the planning and provision of care based on current evidence and outcome evaluation. The crucial role of nurses in meeting the nutritional needs of older patients is also emphasised.
