Most older emergency department patients are malnourished
from Science World Report
The new study, led by researchers at the University of North Carolina Health Care, found that more than half of the older emergency department patients — seen during an 8-week period — were either malnourished or faced a high risk of malnutrition. These malnourished patients had not been diagnosed earlier. One of the common problems among older adults is malnutrition. The researchers were surprised to see that those who were malnourished were not informed about their health status.
