Clinical Nutrition Service
At any one time across the RCH, 15% of patients are receiving nutrition intravenously.
Poor nutritional status can lead to an increased risk of surgical complications, prolonged stays in hospital and increased mortality.
With a larger team including a consultant, nurse consultant and pharmacist, the Nutrition Service will grow their dedication to the treatment and care of patients who are receiving nutrition intravenously, and look to establish the Intestinal Rehabilitation and Clinical Nutrition Service as a nationally recognised Centre of Excellence for the care of children and adolescents with complex nutrition problems.
