Nurses unable to devote time for elderly patients

Age Concern survey has revealed that almost 60% of these patients are malnourished due to lack of personal attention. It was also observed that patients who are above 80 yrs of age were five times prone to malnutrition than the fifties age group. The survey also established that nourishment is an important factor that determines - length of hospital stay of a patient, post surgery complications, and mortality rates.
