NWPF has prepared a medical information and hospital preparedness worksheet to help you get the most of your emergency care or hospital stay.
As you may know, Parkinson's disease symptoms and treatment regimens are often complex, requiring strict adherence to medication and dietary schedules. It is hoped that this document will serve as a useful tool to help you communicate this importance with care professionals.
While not legally binding, this information provides you with an opportunity to express your unique needs/symptoms and also can serve as an education tool for care staff you may interact with. Because symptoms and medication regimens frequently change, it will be important that you periodically review and update this information.
Should you (or your loved one) require additional care and support either at home or in an institutional setting, we urge you to ask that this document be included with the patient's Care Plan as well as attached to medical records. You may need to make several copies so that all relevant parties have ready access to the information.
