Assisting a client with meals

5816 STUDENTS ENROLLED

Ensuring a client remains well nourished and hydrated is an important nursing role. At all times, a nurse must ensure that food and fluid intake is adequate and meets the client’s dietary requirements.

Prior to assisting a client with meals, consider the client’s:

  • preferences and/or care plan for meals
  • level of independence and ability to participate
  • ability to chew and swallow
  • mouth, teeth and gums; a clean and healthy mouth stimulates the appetite
  • environment; a safe, quiet and comfortable environment will reduce distraction and allow time for eating.
