Abstract

This article describes an audit of a standard for observations and assessments introduced on an acute medical unit (AMU), one element of which was patient weight. It showed that only 50% of nurses routinely weighed patients as part of the admission process and/or as part of nutritional screening. Revisions were made to the existing nursing standard.
