Abstract:Malnutrition of hospitalized patients in Israel was found comparable to the rest of the world. However, in Israel in spite of the higher nutrition staff member/patient ratio there was no increase in the administration of supplements or artificial nutrition to malnourished patients in the surveyed units. Also, the length of hospital stay was shorter and was not associated with an increase in mortality.
