    Poster 352 Iatrogenic Malnutrition in Hospitalized Patients With Inflammatory Bowel Disease

    Author Insight from Kimberly J. Kolkhorst, DO, MA, University of South Florida, Department of Gastroenterology

    What’s new here and important for clinicians?

    This study shows how energy requirements in hospitalized patients with inflammatory bowel disease are not being adequately met due to insufficient diet orders.  Our study encourages clinicians to pay more careful attention when placing diet orders in this patient population.

    What do patients need to know?

    Patients should be aware of the fact that adequate diet orders can be inadvertently delayed or overlooked by clinicians.  This study encourages hospitalized patients with IBD to be more proactive regarding discussions about inpatient diet orders in order to meet nutritional needs in the setting of acute illness.
