The Mann Whitney U and the Fisher Exact Probability Tests were used for determining differential effects of the experimental treatment. Following treatment the behavior modification group showed significant change in increased frequencies of daily changes of position and patient-initiated changes of position, in decreased assistance needed for change of position, and in decreased frequency of intervals of prolonged skin pressure. There was not a significant change in frequency of facelying and participation in ward activities of daily living. Subjective verbal reactions of patients and staff and case study reports supported favorable patient outcomes and the absence of adverse effects from the behavioral treatment.
