Abstract

Malnutrition represents an underestimated danger in the elderly population. It is found frequently and casually during admissions to our subacute care nursing homes (abbreviated from the Italian name: "Residenza Socio-Assistenziale" = RSA) when patients are treated for other types of disorders. During a period of 24 months, in our RSA, we found that 93% of patients were malnourished or at risk of malnourishment at admission. Specific interventions allowed us to substantially improve the nutritional status of these patients.
