Hinke Kruizenga in newspaper Trouw about malnourishment in hospitals

More than one in five hospital patients are already malnourished at admission: mostly older people, patients with cancer or from the department of internal medicine, according to the Dutch Malnutrition Prevalence Survey in Hospitals (NPOZ).

For this survey data from more than 550,000 patients in 14 hospitals is used. The NPOZ is carried out by the Malnutrition Steering Group and the Dutch Association of Dietitians, with project leader Hinke Kruizenga (EMGO+).
The question is: how can hospitals ensure that patients in those four days will not lose even more weight, and preferably even slightly strengthen?
