Hospital Care Kits



Have you thought about what happens if you go to the hospital, PD related or not? This may come to a surprise to you, but some health care professionals are not as well versed in Parkinson's Disease as we need them to be. This is where this great resource from the Parkinson's Foundation can really come in handy!



3 out of 4 people with Parkinson's Disease do not receive the medication they need when they are staying in the hospital. This can lead to increased medical care, altered discharge planning, worsening of PD related symptoms, and decrease in function.


This kit provided by the Parkinson's Foundation helps your health care provider know what medications need to be given and when, what it means to have a Deep Brain Stimulator, what it means to use the Duopa pump, who they should contact in an emergency, and more!
