“Parkinson’s and Hospitalization” Presented By: Dr. Stephen Grill
Getting hospitalized can be a stressful and difficult time for anyone. There are specific issues that frequently come up when a person with Parkinson’s Disease is hospitalized. These include problems with getting medications on time and with mobility in the hospital. In addition, there are interactions between other medical conditions and Parkinson’s which must be considered. It is important for persons with Parkinson’s to have a “hospitalization plan” set up ahead of time. This presentation will address these issues and more.
