    For the first time in long-term care RDs are helping their communities achieve reimbursement for the services they provide.  The ability to perform a Nutrition-Focused Physical Exam for malnutrition is required to help substantiate weight and intake data.  Learn how to perform the exam and practice your skills which are valuable in assessing the nutritional status of all residents. Review the criteria for recommending a diagnosis of malnutrition.
