BRAGA AZAMBUJA, Fernanda; GOMES BEGHETTO, Mariur; SILVA DE ASSIS, Michelli Cristina  and  DANIEL DE MELLO, Elza. Food intake reported versus nursing records: is there agreement in surgical patients?. Nutr. Hosp. [online]. 2015, vol.31, n.6, pp.2735-2739. ISSN 1699-5198.

Objectives: to evaluate the agreement between oral feeding by patients and chart records of this acceptance. Method: Besides the food intake surveys of surgical patients, the nursing records of nutrition were evaluated. Is was considered good oral feeding: intake ≥ 75% of total calories prescribed at the day; medium acceptance: 50 to 74.9%; low acceptance: < 50% and NPO (nothing per oral). The Kappa coefficient was adopted to assess agreement. Results: there were similar answers between patient and nursing records in 91.3% of NPO situations, 87.1% for good oral feeding, 17.8% for medium acceptance and 16.5% for low acceptance (Kappa = 0.45). Conclusion: agreement between patientfs reports and nursing records was moderate to low. A higher proportion of similar answers were observed when the patients related good oral feeding or NPO.
