Photo benhvien115.com.vn The absence of a department of nutrition and diet at many hospitals, a lack of trained dietitians and poor food service at hospital canteens are blamed for the high prevalence of malnutrition among patients, said Do Thi Ngoc Diep, director of the HCM City Nutrition Centre. The unhealthy eating habits of patients resulted in malnutrition, Diep said at a conference held last Saturday in HCM City. In HCM City, the prevalence of malnutrition among patients stands at 40.7 per cent.
