I was pleased with this article since we have quite a few of diabetics on our unit. I was surprised that only 38% of those admitted have hyperglycemia, which really is a good thing. We have been dealing hypoglycemic episodes in our facility so we are diligently working on trying to encourage nurses not to hold the basal insulin if the patient does not eat, but to only hold the short acting. I really enjoyed this article and feel I can put much of the information in it to use on my unit.

Very informative. I have experienced medication changes home versus hospital. The hospital diet and home diet are usually very different.
