Can Music Prevent Nursing Home Negligence?

One of the most telling signs of nursing home neglect is the existence of bedsores. Also known as pressure sores or pressure ulcers, bedsores are common among elderly or disabled patients who are bedridden or who are in wheelchairs, unable to move and change positions without assistance. According to nursing home industry standards, such patients need to be moved at least every two hours to prevent bedsores from forming. However, a busy staff means that doesn't always happen, which can lead to injury or even death.
