Numerator The Global Malnutrition Composite Score is comprised of four component measures which are scored separately and whose population is sourced from the overall composite measure denominator. 1. Screening for malnutrition risk at admission. 2. Completion of a nutrition assessment for patients who screened for risk of malnutrition. 3. Appropriate documentation of malnutrition diagnosis for patients identified with malnutrition. 4. Development of a nutrition care plan for malnourished patients. The composite measure score is calculated by summing and then averaging the performance scores for each of the four component measures included in the overall composite measure. Each component measure is a proportion measure.
