Description
Malnutrition of patients is an important factor of poor prognosis and outcome and long stay in hospital. Nutrition screening is of course necessary for detecting underand malnutrition. However, appropriate rapid and easy screening tools for only acute and emergent hospitalized patients are not known. In this study, 14 questions composed with reported and new items were prepared and the utility of those questions for detecting malnutrition in novel hospitalized patients was evaluated. Combined questions on disturbance of swallowing, diarrhea and fever, and also on ageing, food intake and history of fall are very important for detecting malnutrition in newly hospitalized patients, although further study will be absolutely required.
