Who can participate
In nutritionDay for hospitals all hospital wards are welcome to participate.
The audit is unit based, thus each hospital unit can decide about joining the project year after year. Home care, day care- and outpatient care institutions is planned for the future. A seperate section and different questionnaires for ICU wards and nursing homes exists.
It is important to include all patients present in the unit on nutritionDay in order to obtain a comprehensive picture of the unit. The international design of the questionnaires also enables the inclusion of minority groups and non native speakers. Patients less than 7 years of age are excluded for all hospital units.
