Achieving protein and energy targets in malnourished hospitalized patients

on day 4 of admission improves length of hospital stay

Rationale: Malnourished hospitalized patients are more and more recognized early by screening and are treated. To optimize treatment specific energy and protein targets have been set. In analogy with our studies in ICU patients, we aimed to assess the effect of achieving targets for energy and protein on length of hospital stay in malnourished patients.
