Abstract


The Geriatric Nutritional Risk Index (GNRI) is a promising tool initially proposed to predict nutrition-related complications in sub-acute care setting. So, the main aim of this study was to validate the use of GNRI in hospitalized elderly patients by testing its ability to predict patients' outcome through the comparison with Mini Nutritional Assessment (MNA).
