    This video was posted as a joke over in the Lounge forum, but please check it out . . . it actually contains a very practical lesson for all you future neuro docs.

    For the love of God, if and when you all become real doctors, please tell your Parkinson's disease patients to STAY OFF ESCALATORS!!!!!!

    Bradykinesia + postural instability + moving staircase = disaster

    I'm not sure why it would be considered a joke ... it's a cruel one, if it was. I've never thought to give Parkinson's patients that advice before, but I certainly will now.
