Oral and enteral nutrition

The price of malnutrition is high—with increased mortality and up to a 300% increase in costs.1

From decreased energy and poor appetite to skin breakdown, the effects of malnutrition are of significant concern. Undiagnosed malnutrition can lead to gaps in care quality—creating a negative impact on timely diagnosis and early interventions.


Evidence indicates that up to 50% of patients are malnourished or at risk for it at hospital admission, but only 7% are actually diagnosed1
