A Mixed Bag: An enquiry into the care of hospital patients receiving parenteral nutrition

This NCEPOD report highlights the process of care of patients who receive Parenteral Nutrition. These are patients with a compromised nutritional status, where oral or enteral feeding is not an option. The report takes a critical look at areas where the care of patients might have been improved. Remediable factors have been identified in the clinical and the organisational care of these patients.
