Using the Nutrition Care Process in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit

Abstract

The Nutrition Care Process introduced by the American Dietetic Association in 2003 can be used within the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU) for standardization of taxonomy for nutrition care. Using this process in the NICU will help to quantify the nutrition activities unique to the neonatal nutrition specialist, unify descriptors of nutrition delivery functions for data collection, and support registered dietician services to other health care professionals. A case study is presented, with tables explaining the 4 steps to the process, and a useful summary of nutrition diagnosis within the NICU population provides a needed reference to the neonatal nutritionist and NICU staff.
