So much that I didn't realize about the impact of this disease.

While I agree with the devastating impact of these disease and the complications associated with not following the exact medication regimen, the authors' suggestion that patient medication should be given at exact times and not within medication window may not be conducive for the bedside nurse. Further translational research is needed on its effect on the bedside nurse and the patient with critical need for exact medication times.

PD is a complex condition
increasing in occurrence in the
United States. Genetic and environmental factors contribute to its
development. The progressive disease is due to a decrease in
dopamine neurons in the substantia nigra of the brain. Individuals
clinically diagnosed with PD have
motor and nonmotor symptoms
that create challenges for patients
and caregivers. Varied pharmacological and nonpharmacological
treatments are available for symptoms of PD
