Abstract:

Acutely hospitalized persons with dementia (PWD) are being discharged more undernourished than upon admission. This study determined if mealtime difficulties in hospitalized PWD are being adequately recognized by nurses and what factors influence under-recognition of mealtime difficulties. Subjective and objective eating difficulty assessment in the inpatient setting were investigated.
