Clinical Process Guideline: ALTERED NUTRITIONAL STATUS
The Process Guideline for Altered Nutritional Status is an example of best clinical practice information to help facilities provide the best possible care throughout the year. Along with information in the Federal OBRA regulations, surveyors will use this Process Guideline to review how your facility is managing nutritional concerns. We encourage you to examine your process to prevent and manage altered resident nutrition and to consider the application of the information.
