Abstract: The topic addressed by this study was quality indicators in nutritional therapy. The aim was to evaluate the quality of nutritional therapy in an intensive care unit for adults in a Brazilian university hospital. Ten quality indicators selected from a list prepared by the Clinical Nutrition Task Force of the International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI-Brazil) were applied. It was observed that the use of quality indicators of nutritional therapy allowed the identification of compliance and nonconformity processes, which still need additional adjustments.
