It has long been known that nutritional deficiencies are associated with morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients. Registered dietitians (RDs) are responsible for the diagnosis and treatment of malnutrition in all practice settings. Accurate diagnosis of malnutrition depends on the skills of RDs in completing the nutrition assessment combined with critical thinking skills.
There are five components of the nutrition assessment; they are as follows:

• Nutrition-focused physical exam

• Client history

• Food and nutrition history
