BERGOLD, Leila Brito  and  ALVIM, Neide Aparecida Titonelli. Music visitation as a light technology of care. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2009, vol.18, n.3, pp.532-541. ISSN 0104-0707.

This study had as purpose to describe hospitalized client's conceptions on musical visitations and to analyze the importance of these visitations in the hospital context. The theoretical basis used on this study was Jean Watson's humanistic theory of nursing care and the contributions of Even Ruud related music and cultural context. A qualitative approach was used, and Sensitive-Creative Methodology was used for the data production through three dynamics called Body-Musical. The subjects were 14 clients admitted at a military hospital in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Data were analyzed by discourse analysis. The results indicate that musical visitations promote comfort, well-being, expression of emotions, autonomy and stimulate the creation of self resources for the hospitalizated clients. These also point the positive influence of visits to promote communication and the integration of participants at the hospital environment.
