Inpatient nutritional errors can negatively impact a patient's recovery. This review identified fourteen studies investigating inpatient nutritional errors and subsequent patient safety investigations. Errors had various causes and multiple points of origin (e.g., foodservice system, staff). Intervention types included training, technology, checklists, and policies. The success of interventions was not reported, and the authors recommend additional research on the effectiveness of interventions.
