Abstract
Background and aim: Malnutrition in nursing home residents is an important clinical and public health problem. Knowledge is lacking about the reproducibility of dietary recording in geriatric patients. Few studies have described water intake in this age group. The aim of this study was to test the reproducibility of a 7-day dietary record routine in a clinical setting. Methods: The dietary intake of 81 geriatric patients was recorded for two discrete periods of 7 consecutive days by the ward staff. The dietary record routine, which assessed both food and fluid intake, was based on standardized portion sizes and household measurements. Results: The mean daily energy intake during the first period was 7.07 MJ and 6.84 MJ during the second... (More)
Background and aim: Malnutrition in nursing home residents is an important clinical and public health problem.

The aim of this study was to test the reproducibility of a 7-day dietary record routine in a clinical setting. Methods: The dietary intake of 81 geriatric patients was recorded for two discrete periods of 7 consecutive days by the ward staff. The dietary record routine, which assessed both food and fluid intake, was based on standardized portion sizes and household measurements. Results: The mean daily energy intake during the first period was 7.07 MJ and 6.84 MJ during the second period, with a mean difference of 4%. Corresponding values and the mean difference for water intake from food and beverages were 1781 g, 1702 g and 4% respectively. Age, gender, diagnosis, length of stay, diets or ADL function did not influence the results. The correlation coefficient for fluid intake between the periods was 0.84 for women and 0.72 for men. Conclusion: The 7-day dietary record routine seems to have a good reproducibility in assessing the intake of energy and fluids in geriatric patients. (Less)
