Summary

COVID-19 has affected us all especially our residents. Unfortunately, COVID-19 infections place the elderly, especially those with multiple co-morbidities, at risk for negative outcomes including taste and smell disorders, respiratory and GI distress, poor intakes of both food and fluids, increased risk of dehydration and nutritional deficits. The presentation will address how good nutrition and hydrational care can help keep our residents COVID-19 free. The presentation will also identify how COVID-19 can potentially negatively affect our residents’ quality of life, individual appetites, metabolism, nutrition and hydration status, weight, and digestion. The presentation will also address appropriate nutritional screening, assessments, interventions and care planning documentation and regulatory/survey compliance.

Objectives:

  1. The participant will be able to identify 5 ways to keep our residents nourished and hydrated to reduce the risk of COVID-19 infection and help the residents recover and thrive post-COVID-19 while improving nutrition and hydration status.
  2. The participant will be able to identify the negative potential effects of COVID-19 on residents’ nutritional status.
  3. The participant will be able to identify appropriate nutrition interventions to minimize dehydration, weight loss, and malnutrition risks for our residents that are COVID-19 positive.
  4. The participant will be able to assess and develop, implement and document appropriate nutritional plans of care to address the specific needs of residents that are COVID-19 positive while exceeding state and federal regulations.
