A caregiver’s assistance and encouragement play an important role in helping residents receive adequate food and fluid intake. Federal regulations require that nursing homes provide appropriate nutritional care and do everything possible to prevent unplanned weight loss among residents. Failure to fulfill these requirements can result in survey deficiencies, fines, or legal action. This program demonstrates how nursing assistants can help residents with food and fluid intake. It examines factors that may cause a resident to have inadequate food and fluid intake, looks at the consequences of becoming malnourished and underweight, and describes the actions that should be taken if a CNA notices a change in a resident’s food and fluid intake.
