    Hospital food standards are set to be put on a statutory footing, with trusts held to account by the Care Quality Commission, according to the chair of a government-commissioned review. Philip Shelley, who led the review into hospital food following seven patient deaths from listeria last year, told HSJ the incident was an “absolute condemnation” and that trusts must use the review to improve food standards. The review, published last month, also calls for capital investment to refurbish hospital kitchens and replace old and inefficient equipment, which is likely to cost several hund

    It has been revealed that three patients a day are dying from starvation or thirst or choking on NHS wards. In 2017, 936 hospital deaths were attributed to one of those factors, with starvation the primary cause of death in 74 cases.The Office for National Statistics data reveals malnutrition deaths are 34% higher than in 2013. Over-stretched nurses are simply too busy to check if the sick and elderly are getting nourishment. However, Myer Glickman from the ONS says the data is not conclusive proof of poor NHS care. He said:“There has been an increase over time in the number o

    Some aspects of COVID-19 presentation and treatment present special challenges for safely confirming nasogastric tube position. The dense ground-glass x-ray images can make x-ray interpretation more difficult, and the increasing use of proning manoeuvres in conscious patients increases the risk of regurgitation of gastric contents into the oesophagus and aspiration into the lungs which will render pH checks less reliable This aide-memoire is not designed to replace existing, established, NHSI compliant practice of NG confirmation. If a critical care provider is in the fortunate situation

    The study used quality improvement methods to develop and test interventions to extend drinking opportunities and choice in two care homes. Initial activity included observation of the systems for delivering fluids and involving staff, residents and carers in describing and mapping the organisation of care. An interactive training programme was indicated by staff as an important priority and was therefore introduced as a first step to improve hydration care. Subsequent interventions were co-designed with care staff and tested using Plan Do Study Act (PDSA) cycles. Their efficacy was measu

    Hundreds of patients have been warned supply problems with the specially made IV feed they need to stay alive is likely to continue for months. NHS England, which declared a national emergency incident in the summer because of the delays in production of intravenous nutrition, has written to patients warning the problems are far from resolved. Dozens of patients have been admitted to hospital in the past six months because of the supply shortage, which was sparked in June when the main manufacturer, Calea, based in Runcorn, was hit by overnight restrictions by the Medicines and Healt

    BAPEN recognises that resources will be limited and often patchy depending on availability of appropriately trained staff – doctors, nurses, dietitians and pharmacists. The demands posed by large numbers of COVID -19 patients with pneumonia, especially on CPAP or ventilators in critical care and intensive care settings will test the capacity of all involved. It follows that special care still needs to be taken to ensure nutritional support is given where indicated whilst avoiding complications associated with tube misplacement in the lungs or oesophagus followed by infusion of nutrients, drugs
