Every Patient Deserves Good Nutritional Care
On the 24th May, the ‘Call to Action’ document was launched - "Every Patient Deserves Good Nutritional Care", which outlines five key recommendations designed to eliminate avoidable malnutrition in older and chronically sick patients - a problem that affects as many as 140,000 Irish hospital and community patients. The INDI support this call to action for our most vulnerable in our society.
“Every day, many patients are admitted to Irish hospitals in a pitiful nutritional state due to lack of community services and resources aimed at prevention of malnutrition. This really must be addressed, as no modern health service can justify continued inaction in the face of such a prevalent and entirely avoidable public health issue”.
Richelle Flanagan, President, INDI.
