Nutrition Services

CoxHealth at Home offers a complete line of products and supplies prescribed for patients who are unable to maintain nutritional needs through a typical diet. The therapy can be a short- or long-term need based on patient’s clinical condition and include total parenteral nutrition or enteral nutrition. Therapy can be initiated in a patient’s home and administered via bolus, gravity, infusion pump, or even taken orally.

Total Parenteral Nutrition

Total parenteral nutrition is a method of feeding that bypasses the gastrointestinal tract. A special formula given through a vein provides most of the nutrients the body needs. This method is used when someone can’t or shouldn’t receive feedings or fluids by mouth. Total parenteral nutrition therapy provided in the home can significantly decrease a patient’s length of hospitalization and assist in containing medical costs. Our solutions are prepared in an USP797 compliant pharmacy.

Enteral Nutrition

Enteral feeding is nutrition taken through the mouth or through a tube that goes directly to the stomach or small intestine. A person on enteral feeds usually has a condition or injury that prevents eating a regular diet by mouth, but their GI tract is still able to function.

Being fed through a tube allows them to receive nutrition and keep their GI tract working. Enteral feeding may make up their entire caloric intake or may be used as a supplement.

Dietitian Support

CoxHealth at Home offers highly skilled dietitians and staff to aid and educate in the use of equipment and provide nutritional assessments for patients.

Our dietitians play a vital role on the health care team by providing nutritional care to patients in various disease states and conditions. Compromised nutrition can lead to slow healing and recovery.

Our dietitians monitor, assess, and optimize nutrition status based on the patient’s current medical condition and/or nutrition adequacy. They confer with physicians and other health care professionals to coordinate medical and nutritional needs, and they make recommendations for tube and intravenous feedings and/or dietary supplements. They also teach patients how to make nutritionally sound food choices to speed the recovery process, prevent disease, and maintain a healthy lifestyle.
