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
