Dear Editor, Nutrition is an important element emphasized by our nursing theorist, Virginia Henderson and Orem in their nursing models that each patient needs to be assisted particularly when they are sick(1,2). Several nutritional aspects commonly monitored by the nurses include anthropometric, biochemical, clinical, dietary and nursing history data(3). The minimal baseline information taken when a patient attended any clinical setting in Malaysia are the weight and height to calculate their current body mass index (kgm-2)(3). Later, biochemical investigations such as blood urea serum electrolyte (BUSE), full blood count (FBC), renal function test (RFT) or liver function test (LFT) are carried out for monitoring and early detection for malnutrition risk (3). These parameters are helpful for the healthcare professionals (HCP) such as physician, pharmacist, nurses and dietician to monitor their client progress, administration of enteral or parenteral feeding and adherence with prescribed diet (4,5).
