Doctors Walk for MS

The Children’s Clinic recently participated in the Walk MS – Northeast Arkansas on team Docs Fight MS Walk on April 26, 2014 at Jonesboro High School. Docs fight MS raised 11,340.00 for the cause.

The walk is a fundraiser for finding the cure for Multiple sclerosis. Multiple sclerosis is an unpredictable, often disabling, disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. Millions of people are affected by MS and the challenges of living with its unpredictable symptoms, which range from numbness and tingling to blindness and paralysis. The progress, severity and specific symptoms of MS in any one person cannot yet be predicted, but advances in research and treatment are moving us closer to a world free of MS.

Poison Prevention Week

HotlineLogo

National Poison Prevention Week is March 16 – 22, 2014.

An estimated 90,000 children are treated in emergency rooms nationwide and about 30 die each year due to poison-related incidents. The good news, many of these poison-related incidents are preventable.

The first step in prevention is identifying poison danger. Nine out of ten times unintentional poisoning incidents occure in the home, and many involve commonly used medicines and household chemicals.  Simple steps such as keeping products in original containers, properly sealed after each use and stored up and away and out of child’s reach and sight can go a long way in preventing unintentional exposure. It is also important to know what to do in case of exposure.

Graco Harness Buckle Recall

From Graco:

Harness Buckle Recall – 2014 Announcement

As part of our continuous product testing and improvement process, Graco identified that food and dried liquids that can make some harness buckles progressively more difficult to open over time or become stuck in the latched position. Therefore, Graco has decided to conduct a voluntary recall on the harness buckles used on all toddler convertible car seats and harnessed booster seats manufactured from 2009 to July 2013. Graco would like to stress this does not in any way affect the performance of the car seat or the effectiveness of the buckle to restrain the child. And a car seat is always the safest way to transport your child.

Injuries Reported: 0

Number of Units Affected: 3.7 million

Dates Produced: 2009 through July 2013

MSRP: $99.00-$399.99

Models Affected: Toddler Convertible Car Seats: Cozy Cline, Comfort Sport, Classic Ride 50, My Ride 65, My Ride 70, My Ride 65 with Safety Surround, Size4Me 70, My Size 70, Head Wise 70, Smart Seat. Harnessed Booster Seats: Nautilus 3-in-1, Nautilus Elite and Argos.

Solution

Graco offers a new and improved replacement harness buckle to affected consumers at no cost. If you are experiencing difficulty with your harness buckle and cleaning has not improved its performance, please contact our Graco customer service team at 800-345-4109 (Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.) or consumerservices@gracobaby.com.

Cleaning Tips for Harness Buckles:

  • To clean your buckle, turn the restraint over and push the retainer through the harness strap slot. Place the buckle in a cup of warm water and gently agitate the buckle, pressing the red button several times while it is in the water.
  • Do not submerge the harness webbing and do not use soaps or lubricants, only rinse the harness buckle with warm water.
  • Shake out the excess water and allow the harness buckle to air dry.
  • Reattach the harness buckle into the same slot and re-check harness for correct installation according to the car seat manual before use.
