Recall of Britax Chaperone Infant Seat

There has been a recall of the Britax Chaperone Infant Seat, models E9L69N9, E9L69P3, & EL69P5 made 4/09-5/10. The problem is with the chest clip. It is brittle and may break causing sharp edges and choking hazard. Call 888-427-4829 for instructions and a new chest clip. If chest clip is broken, remove chest clip and any fragments and discontinue use of seat until replacement clip is installed.

When we teach our clients to how to install their car seats we always urge caregivers to register the seat with the manufacturer so that they can be notified of any recalls. Recalls for small numbers of seats often don’t get a lot of media coverage. The only way you can be sure to know if there is a recall is to register with the manufacturer. Most manufacturers now allow you to register online and it only takes a minute.

Urgent Care Center in Brooklyn Open 24/7

Empty waiting room
Hey guys!

Once again I am writing about the amazing facility at the old Victory Memorial Hospital in Bay Ridge that is now SUNY Downstate.

I developed what I believed to be the flu on Friday night. I tried to rest (didn’t happen with my 4 year old and 8 month old) but kept getting worse. By Sunday morning I had had it and went off to the urgent care center, where I knew there wouldn’t be any wait. Turned out to be strep and it is Monday and I am now feeling better after my antibiotic.

I feel the need to plug this place again because the nurses told me how SUNY Downstate will probably be doing away with the overnight hours because nobody knows about the facility and it is always empty. I am trying to get the word out because having a place other than the emergency room to take a sick child in the middle of the night is an invaluable resource.

The 24/7 facility is staffed by one doctor, two nurses and a nurse technician and has 17 acute-area beds, an isolation room, a gynecological room, an orthopedic room, a designated asthma area, a designated area for patients saying they are acute, and a fast track stitch-them-up area.

Patients of all ages are accepted, as are most insurance plans, and free flu shots are available.
