Home Away from Home: Care for the Inpatient
It can be common for people with Parkinson’s to experience inpatient hospitalization (planned or unplanned) either for Parkinson’s-related issues/treatments or for other comorbidities.
Inpatient hospitalization for people with Parkinson’s is a crucial event that can significantly affect morbidity and mortality. Best-practice management strategies and involvement of the appropriate teams can reduce this risk.
