Abstract: assessed using the student T-Test. Pearson's correlations were performed between energy intake and LOS. Significance was set at P<0.05. 32 of 36 patients, mean age 62.6, 17 females and 15 males, did not meet their nutritional requirements. Mean deficit between total energy intake and requirements was 463 (354.1) kcal (p <0.001). Mean deficit between total protein intake to requirements was 30 (18.4) g (p <0.047). Mean weight loss from admission to discharge was 2.1 kg (+2.5 kg À À8.75 kg). Energy intake correl…
