The My Meal Intake Tool (M-MIT): Validity of a patient self-assessment for food and fluid intake at a single meal The Nutrition Care in Canadian Hospitals (NCCH) study revealed that medical and surgical patients who ate ≤ 50% of the food provided to them was an independent risk factor for length of stay (LOS). Poor intake can lead to iatrogenic malnutrition, even in well-nourished patients and 20% of patients’ who stayed more than seven days did regress nutritionally. Dietitians typically will use “calorie counts” to determine if a patient consumes enough protein and calories to support recovery. However, calorie counts cannot be completed for all patients and busy nursing staff may not consistently complete the forms.
