Refeeding adolescents with an eating disorder in the inpatient setting can be challenging especially with the prevalent sense that one should start at a low caloric level and advance calories slowly. Because of various issues including changes in health insurance coverage, this edict should be challenged. This project is a retrospective chart review of adolescent patients ages 12-21 diagnosed with an eating disorder who are placed on an aggressive refeeding protocol during an inpatient stay at Massachusetts General Hospital or the Newton Wellesley Hospital. The student will utilize a structured review to help determine the safety of the protocol especially in respect to the refeeding syndrome and outcomes including weight gain and length of stay using defined criteria.
