He Said: “My Bootie Floats With The BackBone Wedge”

Owner & CEO BackBone Wedge

Gwen With Her Brother Using The BackBone Wedge

The BackBone Wedge Even Helped Fritz In His Recovery!

Gwen Jewell is the CEO & Founder of the Backbone Wedge, a revolutionary new wedge that prevents bedsores that is changing lives for people who are immobile.

Get a couple BackBone Wedges to elevate both sides of your body to feel like you’re floating in space. Also be sure to check out her heel protectors and other products that are available.”

— Eric Thomas Patrick, BackBone Wedge Client

REDWOOD CITY, CA, USA, February 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — With the prevalence of pressure sores at an all time epidemic high in the United States, millions of people are looking for a way to prevent and treat this horrible condition.

Billions of dollars are spent every year to prevent pressure sore, yet still more than 2.5 million people will develop them each year and over 60,000 of those people will die as a consequence of complications resulting from them.

A pressure sore is localized injury to skin and/or underlying tissue that can extend down to the bone, and it results from sustained pressure particularly in patients who need to stay in bed or immobile for periods of time.

Eric Thomas Patrick, a spinal cord injury patient and client of Gwen’s BackBone Wedge says that regular wedges that you can buy “for super cheap, super suck”. They are “hard and don’t maintain their shape”.

The problem with most wedges is that they tend to become hard after 15 minutes. So the initial pressure relief becomes pressure inducing on the exact location of the pressure sore. More pressure on the pressure sore is exactly why they are very difficult to manage and treat. In response to the pressure, patients start twisting and turning whatever way they can trying to get comfortable again.

This can be hard on caregivers who feel they are constantly assisting their loved ones find the right position.

In addition, traditional wedges tend to push patients to a steep angle, which causes pressure on the bony prominences of the opposite side of the body. This can lead to new pressure sores in various locations.

The BackBone Wedge is different because there is zero pressure touching the pressure sore. As Eric says “My bootie floats with the BackBone Wedge!” And just as importantly, the BackBone Wedge doesn’t force you into an awkward angle. The BackBone Wedge easily slips under the patient, allowing the coccyx area (the bony prominence at the end of the spine and the area most likely to develop a pressure sore) to float in the air.

Patients love it because it gives them a sense of security knowing there is zero pressure on their pressure sore, and caregivers love it because they now reposition the patient less frequently than they used to.

And if that weren’t enough all on its own, Gwen Jewell, who herself is a wound care nurse and hospital lead of the pressure injury prevention program, the BackBone Wedge has an antimicrobial covering that can be easily cleaned.

Have you ever seen drainage from a pressure wound soak through a flimsy pillow cover and absorb into a wedge or pillow? It’s disgusting, and more than that, it’s a petri dish of infection. Infection is the dreaded complication of pressure sores that all patients and caregivers fear. Christopher Reeves, best known for his role as Superman, died from cardiac collapse and arrest which was a direct result of an infection from his pressure sore.

Gwen’s quest to create the perfect wedge is not only motivated by her love of her patients, but its personal too. Gwen’s father developed complications from a pressure sore while he was in the hospital, and Gwen’s brother has a spinal cord injury, so she is always on the lookout for reddened skin and ways to prevent pressure sores.

Gwen found various types of foam wedges, gel pods, air mattresses, alarm technology and pillows that either weren’t helpful, weren’t available in the community or weren’t able to adequately reduce pressure and a clean environment at the site of injury. Both her father and brother inspired her to find something better on the market.

Other technologies are out there that are used in the hospital setting that can tell nurses when it’s time to turn a patient, but those are not available in the community setting and they still don’t address the problem of finding a way to get the patient in a good position or reducing exposure to drainage from an existing pressure sore. Putting a new pillowcase over a bacteria-infested wedge isn’t an effective means of protecting the wound from infection.

When she couldn’t find what she needed, Gwen literally created what she thought was the perfect wedge. She had 3 major requirements – good positioning, pressure relief and antimicrobial.

For several years, Gwen worked on the perfect wedge design, using her brother as her test patient. And finally, her hard work paid off. Gwen designed the BackBone Wedge using her 3 simple principles.

First, the BackBone Wedge allows for easy positioning for both the patient and caregiver. The smooth surface and crescent shape of the BackBone Wedge make it easy to put in position, verify correct positioning, and because the patients don’t feel jammed on their sides, the need to reposition is dramatically reduced. As Gwen’s client Eric notes, “quad pads and other wedges aren’t designed for getting you off your back at all. With the BackBone Wedge, I don’t get thrown to the side and my body does not get twisted like it did with every other wedge out there.”

Second, the BackBone Wedge offloads pressure. The caregiver can literally slide his hand under the BackBone Wedge and feel that there is zero pressure on the pressure sore. This gives the patient and caregiver relief knowing that pressure sores can’t develop and old ones are able to heal.

And third, the BackBone Wedge has an antimicrobial covering, so if the wound does drain, the BackBone Wedge can be easily cleaned and disinfected, without worry of virulent bacteria growing on the material inside the wedge.

The BackBone Wedge has been trialed in hospitals nationally and internationally with great enthusiasm, however Gwen is most excited about the potential impact it will have for families like hers who can’t afford around the clock nurses and an unlimited supply of wedges at their disposal. Patients at home in the community now have access to the top of the line, hospital grade technology that actually prevents pressure sores.

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a new case comment on proper parties and venue in a case involving a juvenile. The complete comment will be published on her Blog at https://janetreedesq.blogspot.com/

Ms. Reed explains that "In re: A.P." is a case about a juvenile named A.P. who was born on August 2, 2015. When A.P. was two months old, A.P.’s mother was committed to a mental health facility in Mecklenburg County. Prior to her commitment, the mother was living in a group home located in Cabarrus County. While in the mental health facility, A.P.’s mother met with a social worker from Cabarrus County Department of Human Services and expressed an intention to move into her grandfather’s home with A.P. upon her release from the mental health facility. During the mother’s commitment, A.P. was placed with the mother’s case worker from the group home, who resided in Rowan County. Cabarrus County transferred the case to Mecklenburg County, where the grandfather resided.

On November 25, 2015, Mecklenburg County received report of a concerning situation and found the mother living in unacceptable conditions with A.P. and the mother was alleged to have used drugs. The mother agreed to place A.P. back with the case worker in Rowan County. Subsequently, the case worker informed Mecklenburg County that she could no longer care for A.P. and Mecklenburg County “filed a juvenile petition with the District Court in Mecklenburg County alleging that A.P. was a neglected and dependent juvenile.” District Court granted the petition.

The mother objected to the petition based on the argument that Mecklenburg County “lacked standing to file the juvenile petition under the relevant provisions of the Juvenile Code, and therefore, the trial court lacked subject matter jurisdiction to hear the case.” On appeal, “[t]he Court of Appeals held that [Mecklenburg County] lacked standing because it was not the proper party to file the juvenile petition under N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a), and it vacated the trial court’s order on that basis.” N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a) provides that “[o]nly a county director of social services or the director’s authorized representative may file a petition alleging that a juvenile is abused, neglected, or dependent”. Further, N.C.G.S. § 7B-400(a) provides that “[a] proceeding in which a juvenile is alleged to be abused, neglected, or dependent may be commenced in the district in which the juvenile resides or is present”.

The North Carolina Supreme Court explained that “this rigid interpretation of isolated provisions in the Juvenile Code is unsupported by the whole of the statutory text and creates jurisdictional requirements beyond those which the legislature intended to impose.” “When read holistically with other provisions in the Juvenile Code, the statutory sections governing ‘[p]arties,’ N.C.G.S. § 7B-401.1(a), and ‘[v]enue,’ id. § 7B-400(a), do not mandate dismissal of the juvenile petition in this case. Although subsection 7B-401.1(a) states that ‘[o]nly a county director of social services or the director’s authorized representative may file a petition alleging that a juvenile is abused, neglected, or dependent,’ the statute does not identify which county director of social services must file the petition. Nor does the statute limit the class of proper petitioners to only a subset of county directors of social services.” (internal citation omitted). The Court explained that this contrasted with how “[t]hroughout the Juvenile Code, the legislature intentionally differentiates between references to a director of a department of social services and a particular director of a department of social services.” The Supreme Court also noted that it’s decision “is guided and supported by our oft-recited recognition that ‘the fundamental principle underlying North Carolina’s approach to controversies involving child neglect and custody [is] that the best interest of the child is the polar star.’” The case is In the matter of: A.P., No. 145PA17.

GRAFTON, WISCONSIN, UNITED STATES, February 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Richard A. Kranitz, in a newly published comment, reviews the issue of arbitration clauses in business agreements. The full comment will be published on his Blog at https://richardkranitzblog.blogspot.com/

Mr. Kranitz explains that, in a recent decision of the Supreme Court of Wisconsin, the Court considered whether a dispute should be arbitrated where the original operating agreement contained an arbitration clause, but the subsequent agreement did not.

In 2015, three doctors, acting through their own legal entities were members of Midwest Neurosciences Associates, LLC (hereinafter “Midwest”). “[O]n August 1, 2005, the parties at issue executed an Operating Agreement which modified a previous operating agreement of August, 2002 so to admit, among others, Dr. Pannu to Midwest. Dr. Pannu executed the Operating Agreement as President of Great Lakes and also signed a personal guaranty for the obligations of Great Lakes. The Operating Agreement contains the arbitration clause at issue.” On March 6, 2006, Dr. Pannu signed the Ancillary Restrictive Covenant that addressed covenant not to compete. “The Ancillary Restrictive Covenant, however, did not specifically incorporate by reference Section 13.7, the arbitration section, of the Operating Agreement.”

The members of Midwest decided to dissolve the LLC in 2015 and dispute arose over whether during the negotiation, parties entered into the Redemption Agreement, which among other things, voided the non-compete provision. Eventually, Midwest and one of the doctor’s entity, NEA, sued Dr. Pannu and his entity, Great Lakes Neurosurgical Associates, LLC. “Before a responsive pleading was filed, Midwest and NEA moved to stay the proceedings and compel arbitration in accordance with Section 13.7 of the Operating Agreement. Midwest and NEA argued that the Operating Agreement was the governing contract between the parties and that Section 13.7 within that agreement unambiguously required the parties to arbitrate violations of Section 8.13 of the Operating Agreement and the Ancillary Restrictive Covenant.” Dr. Pannu filed a responsive pleading asserting that the Redemption Agreement was a valid agreement and thus voided the Operating Agreement and the Ancillary Restrictive Covenant.

“On March 16, 2016, the circuit court issued a written order granting Great Lakes and Dr. Pannu's motion and declaring that the Redemption Agreement was a valid contract. The court determined that as of March 31, 2015, the Operating Agreement and the non-compete provisions of the Ancillary Restrictive Covenant were invalid, unenforceable and/or inapplicable to Great Lakes and Dr. Pannu. The order also denied Midwest and NEA's motion to stay the action and compel arbitration.” Midwest and NEA appealed.

“On December 20, 2017, the court of appeals issued its decision concluding that the ‘determinative question is whether the circuit court erred by not ordering the parties to submit their dispute to arbitration.’ The court of appeals held ‘that the question of whether the arbitration clause was superseded should have been submitted to arbitration.’ As such, the court of appeals declined to address the multiple other issues that Midwest and NEA raised on appeal and reversed and remanded, instructing the circuit court to grant Midwest and NEA's motion to compel arbitration.” (internal citations omitted).

Wisconsin Supreme Court provided a general overview of the principles governing arbitration clauses and noted that “[c]onsequently, only those disputes that the parties have agreed to so submit to arbitration are relegated to proceed in that forum. A court should order arbitration ‘only where the court is satisfied that neither the formation of the parties' arbitration agreement nor (absent a valid provision specifically committing such disputes to an arbitrator) its enforceability or applicability to the dispute is in issue.’” (internal citations omitted).

Noting the various conflicting provisions amongst the Operating Agreement, the Ancillary Restrictive Covenant, and the Redemption Agreement, Wisconsin Supreme Court concluded that “[d]ue to the foregoing, Midwest and NEA failed to demonstrate ‘clear and unmistakable’ intent to arbitrate. Thus, the question of whether the parties agreed to arbitrate must, in this instance, be decided by the circuit court.” The case is Midwest Neurosciences Associates, LLC v. Great Lakes Neurosurgical Associates, LLC, 2018 WI 112.
