In 2013, there were nearly 2 million hospital inpatient stays involving malnutrition, according to a 2013 statistical brief from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality, Baxter International Inc. and the American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition.1 The impact of malnutrition in U.S. hospitalized patients is associated with up to five times higher risk of in-hospital deaths, may result in two times longer hospital stays, and creates an estimated $42 billion burden to the health care system. Join us for a three-part Community Knowledge Network series from our Hospital Improvement Innovation Network to learn about leading practices across the malnutrition care continuum.
