Throwback Thursday

Earlier this month, I showed you some photos of a malnourished patient who I think has improved because of Argenaid. While there may be some things in the past that I miss, I confess that in the past I did not pay sufficient attention to nutritional issues. NNI-logoI’m starting to implement the Nestle Mini nutritional assessment as a screening tool, along with the associated algorithm. The interesting thing is that patients appreciate it so much that I am at least trying to talk to them about better nutrition. And, don’t forget that performing a nutritional assessment of a patient with a wound or an ulcer is now a quality measure through the US Wound Registry.
