Apria's specialized tube feeding team contacts every new patient to conduct a comprehensive nutrition screening. The screening process identifies any potential nutritional risks which require further attention, as well as establishing a baseline for monitoring each patient's response to therapy. Apria registered dietitians follow up on all patients with nutrition risk, conducting a more complete nutrition assessment and sharing their recommendations with the patient's physician.
All patients are re-screened routinely by Apria's specialized enteral team to assess patient compliance, monitor response to therapy, and identify forms of feeding intolerance that may lead to dehydration or weight loss.
