Preventing pressure ulcers in institutionalized elders: assessing the effects of small, unscheduled shifts in body position.

Abstract

This pre-test/post-test, two-week experimental clinical study compared the effect of small, unscheduled shifts in body position in preventing pressure ulcers in two groups of elders (n = 19) determined at risk by the Norton Scale. No statistically significant effects were found using these small shifts.
