NHS watchdog to tackle malnutrition in hospitals


www.gdaguru.com today reports that the Department of Health has said that the number of inspections will increase after reports that 1,165 people starved to death in NHS hospitals in the last four years. 03-03-2013

The Department of Health has said it is "unacceptable" for patients to go hungry or be malnourished in hospitals, and has increased the number of unannounced inspections by the care watchdog to tackle the issue.

The Sunday Express said figures from the Office for National Statistics revealed that for every patient who dies from malnutrition, four more have dehydration mentioned on their death certificate.

In 2011, 43 patients starved to death and 291 died in a state of severe malnutrition, the newspaper said, while the number of patients discharged from hospital suffering from malnutrition doubled to 5,558.
