Day in and day out I come across at least one positive COVID-19 patient in the hospital and it is a bit challenging to ensure they are meeting their macronutrient and micronutrient needs. You guys it is harder than it looks because the COVID-19 virus is so new and we (clinical practitioners) are still learning what works and what doesn’t related to food and nutrition! In this video I share with you some things I am doing to ensure my patients don’t lose weight, muscle, and their overall appetite while in the hospital. In this video I explore the calorie and protein needs for non-critical ill patients with COVID-19, the specific foods I am offering them, and one tried but true starategy to ensure they stay well nourished.
