Nutritional status: a basic 'vital sign'.

Abstract

The purpose of this article is to alert and inform the home healthcare nurse about the national focus on the unacceptably high levels of malnutrition in the elderly; its significance in patient outcome; the effort of the Nutrition Screening Initiative to help all healthcare professionals incorporate routine nutrition screening and intervention activities into healthcare practice; and the simple screening tools available to assist in evaluations.
