DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. and ABBOTT PARK, Ill., Dec. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- While proper nutrition is vital to staying healthy, its importance becomes more critical for patients recovering in the hospital. A new study by Advocate Health Care and Abbott (ABT) found that optimizing nutrition care in the hospital could help reduce 30-day readmission rates by 27 percent and the average hospital stay by almost two days for malnourished patients. Across the U.S., 1 in 3 people enter the hospital malnourished, which can often go unrecognized and undertreated.2-3 To help improve care for malnourished patients, Advocate implemented two versions of a nutrition care program – basic and enhanced – at four of its Chicagoland hospitals. Both programs required care teams to conduct patient malnutrition risk screenings using a validated tool on the hospitals' electronic medical records system, and provide nutrition treatment and support for malnourished or at-risk patients.
