Nutrition Screening

Nutrition screening
Nutrition Screening

A systematic method of identifying individuals at risk for nutritional problems.

Nutrition screening1
Nutrition Screening

  • Effective Screening Process

    • Uses meaningful criteria as identified by a nutrition professional

    • Sets meaningful thresholds that correspond to known risks

Nutrition screening2
Nutrition Screening

  • Effective Screening Process (cont)

    • Is applied to every resident

    • Is implemented quickly at admission

    • Is implemented uniformly and consistently

Nutrition screening3
Nutrition Screening

  • The Nutrition Care Process

    • Screens patients for nutrition risk

    • Assess each patient identified in screening process as “at risk”

    • Develop a care plan for each patient

    • Document, communicate, and implement the plan

    • Re-assess patient at defined intervals

    • As appropriate, revise the plan

Nutrition screening4
Nutrition Screening

  • Nutrition Care Process

    • Nutrition Assessment

      • In-depth evaluation of a client’s nutritional well-being

Nutrition screening5
Nutrition Screening

  • Nutrition Care Process (cont)

    • Nutrition Intervention

      • Actions taken to correct a nutrition problem

        • This starts with a care plan

    • If BMI >30, use adjusted body weight (ABW) as fat does not hold water

      • ABW= CBW – IBW x .25 + IBW

        • ABW ÷ 2.2 x 30cc= estimated fluid intake for healthy adult
