A few key points here in regards to nutrition.
Good nutrition provides the absolute foundation,
for supporting a healthy body.
Now, some of your facilities may
have a dietitian for example.
That may provide nutritional
screenings and they're so valuable
in identifying any sort of nutritional imbalances
or any sort of issues that could affect
your patient's health or well-being.
And don't forget, sometimes, we
may need to supplement nutrition,
which can be orally. Sometimes we
need to add specialized supplements
or if they can't take the PO or oral route,
then we may need to use two
feedings parenterally via fluids
or total parental nutrition.
I hope that was helpful for you
today in regards to nutrition,
thanks for watching.
