Malnutrition and Dehydration in Nursing Homes

Nursing home staff must carefully monitor patients to determine if they are eating regularly, have access to an appropriate meal plan and obtain necessary fluids to prevent injuries from malnutrition and dehydration.

Patients that are taking medication may experience nausea. As a result, they may skip meals or eat light meals which do not provide adequate sustenance. Medications may also impact the frequency with which patients choose to drink fluids. To ensure patient safety, nursing home staff must carefully monitor the food and liquid consumption of patients to avoid unnecessary risk of dehydration or malnutrition.
