When a person is involuntarily committed in North Carolina, the law requires an examination by a second physician within 24 hours of arrival at the facility.

— Janet Pittman Reed, lawyer in North Carolina

JACKSONVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2019 / — In a recent North Carolina proceeding, the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously vacated the trial court’s order authorizing continued involuntary commitment of a person. The Court found that respondent need not show that the lack of examination by a second physician resulted in prejudice to the respondent; appellate relief is automatic upon a showing that the statute N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) was violated.

Attorney Janet Reed, based in North Carolina, has published a comment that reviews this case. The complete article will be published on her Blog at

N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) provides that anyone who is involuntarily committed must receive an examination by a second physician within 24 hours of arrival at the facility. Unfortunately, this did not happen for the respondent in: In the matter of E.D. Therefore, the North Carolina Court of Appeals unanimously vacated the trial court’s order authorizing continued commitment. In so ruling, the Court of Appeals held that respondent need not show that the lack of examination by a second physician resulted in prejudice to the respondent, rather the appellate relief is automatic upon showing that the statute was violated. Court of Appeals also held that “N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) was the type of statutory mandate for which the right to appellate review is automatically preserved regardless of a failure to object in the trial court.”

North Carolina Supreme Court reviewed the Court of Appeals holdings and concluded that as a threshold matter, the assigned error is not automatically preserved. Supreme Court did note that “it is well established that ‘when a trial court acts contrary to a statutory mandate and a defendant is prejudiced thereby, the right to appeal the court’s action is preserved, notwithstanding defendant’s failure to object at trial.’” The critical issue, however, is that such automatic preservation occurs “when a statute ‘is clearly mandatory, and its mandate is directed to the trial court’ …” Here, the State and respondent disagreed as to whether N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) is directed to the trial court. The State argued that any such mandate must be express direct the mandate to the trial court. Respondent argued “that the Court of Appeals was correct to conclude that the issue was automatically preserved because the district court, presumably through its role in conducting hearings, is implicitly called upon to supervise state health care facilities when people are involuntarily committed to those facilities.”

The Supreme Court concluded the State’s argument was the correct one. The Court noted that prior decisions addressing this issue found such a mandate to exist where “there was a statutory mandate that automatically preserved an issue for appellate review when the mandate was directed to the trial court either: (1) by requiring a specific act by the trial judge, . . . ; or (2) by requiring specific courtroom proceedings that the trial judge has authority to direct . . . .” (internal citations omitted). Here, N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a) provides that “within 24 hours of arrival at a 24- hour facility described in G.S. 122C-252, the respondent shall be examined by a physician.” Thus, the Court concluded that such mandate was not directed at the trial court and the issue was not automatically preserved for appeal. Having concluded the threshold issue, the Court did not reach the question of whether one must show prejudice from violation of N.C. Gen. Stat. § 122C-266(a)’s mandate to be afforded relief.

The case is In the matter of E.D., No. 125PA18.

Autism Service Dog Delivered to Assist 6-year-old Boy in Grand Rapids, MI

GRAND RAPIDS, MICHIGAN, USA, June 15, 2019 / — Zeke, a 6-year old boy living in Grand Rapids, Michigan has received a very special delivery of his very own Autism Service Dog from SDWR to assist him and help better communicate his needs. Based in Madison, Virginia, SDWR has a mission to provide specially-bred and trained dogs for people with invisible disabilities like Diabetes, PTSD, Seizure Disorders, or in the case of Zeke – Autism Spectrum Disorder. SDWR has hundreds of service dogs working across the United States and around the globe. SDWR is currently serving approximately 1,000 families.

Lane, a Labrador Retriever Autism Service Dog, recently graduated from SDWR’s Service Dog Raiser Program where volunteers diligently raise young service dogs in training over the course of approximately one year. Both the dogs and raisers must complete the foundation and skill set training provided through SDWR trainers at their facility in Virginia.

Lane is also an honored graduate of the SDWR Fallen Officer Puppy Program. The Fallen Officer Puppy Program, also known as “FOPP,” is an initiative by SDWR to pay respect to the legacy of service by fallen American police who sacrificed their lives in the line of duty. Lane is named in honor of fallen hero Trooper David J. Lane of the New York State Police who honorably served with the United States Army in Iraq and Afghanistan. Trooper Lane was killed in a vehicle crash while on patrol. Autism Service Dog Lane’s work with Zeke will carry on in memoriam of Trooper David J. Lane’s life of service before self.

Zeke was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder at 2 years old. His family is hopeful that a service dog will provide constant companionship and make a big difference in his life. Lane will assist in reducing the effects each diagnosis has on the family’s independence and daily life by working continuously with Zeke. Since Lane is a service dog and covered under laws in accordance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, he will be able to accompany Zeke and his family everywhere – from school, to the park, and even grocery shopping or out to restaurants.

SDWR’s unique training program is what sets them apart from other non-profit service dog organizations. SDWR trainers will continue to return for training sessions with Zeke, his family, and Lane every 3-4 months over the course of the next 18 months to continue working on Lane’s customized training, follow up training and training the human to make a successful team and public access certification.

Establishing Effective Communication in Healthcare with William T. Sugg

With proper communication comes workplace efficiency, which can be established using William T. Sugg’s 3 tips.

PORTLAND , TENNESSEE, USA, June 14, 2019 / — Communication is the transfer and understanding of meaning between a sender and a receiver. William T. Sugg stresses that communication is one of the most crucial factors affecting the efficiency of an organization. Organizational communication is a collection of interactions, decisions, interpretations, and actions throughout the organization. When it comes to hospitals and healthcare, effective communication is truly the difference between life and death.
With more than 25 years of experience as a healthcare executive, William T. Sugg, founder of a 501c (3) Healthcare Foundation and a Corporate University, lists his suggestions for establishing effective communication within your organization.

Defined Hierarchy

An organizational structure dictates how the supervision, allocation of tasks, and task coordination are directed to achieve the organization’s primary objectives. If the organizational structure is not consistent and efficient, there is a greater chance of confusion and mistakes. William T. Sugg suggests implementing defined hierarchy channels of communication. This prevents discrepancies in what is expected or needed by upper level management. Objectives can effectively be communicated down the chain of command quickly without hesitation or delay.

Williiam T. Sugg notes that two key factors to effective downward communication channels is the accuracy and speed of information. Communications should be as simple as possible and easy to understand across various departments. Effective communication channels that enhance the speed and accuracy include email, instant message, or mobile communication. Employees can use messages as reference to their job task or objective. Face to face communication has been shown to increase the chances of misinformation being passed downward. Almost everyone has played the game telephone where the message is whispered around a circle of players and at the end of the circle, the last person recites the message. More often than not, that message is vastly different than what was originally said.


Receiving clear direction is crucial, but William T. Sugg also highlights the importance of management’s attitude towards receiving criticism. When management allows constructive criticism or concerns to be communicated upward, there is greater mutual trust between employees and upper level management. Management does not have the ability to be everywhere at all times. Team members need to be able to communicate what they are experiencing to their superiors to give management visibility of constraints. To prevent the distrust, upper management needs to be as transparent as possible, providing clear directions and intent, as well as be receptive to criticism. If management refuses to hear the employee’s perspective, it can create serious issues within the organization in morale, retention rates, and long term problems that may continue to build if they go unaddressed.

Jay Brandenburg-Nau Shares How Acceptance and Commitment Therapy Can Be the First Step to Healing

Jay Brandenburg-Nau

Jay Brandenburg-Nau

LITTLETON, COLORADO , USA, June 14, 2019 / — Jay Brandenburg-Nau helps clients in his community achieve wholeness and peace by employing a variety of theories and practices without the use of expensive medication. A licensed professional and experienced counselor, he relies on treatments such as Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) to help his clients overcome emotional and psychological obstacles.

As a full time therapist, Jay Brandenburg-Nau has spent more than a decade providing care and guidance to people struggling in their everyday lives. He notes that many people don’t need to undergo specialized care or require medication to find happiness. He helps them achieve more positive well-being through careful guidance and through treatments like Acceptance and Commitment Therapy.

“Some counselors will advise controlled thinking, where their clients will work to change the way they think and feel by denying any negative feelings,” says Jay Brandenburg-Nau. “In ACT, I teach my clients that some emotions need to be felt, and instead of being controlled by them or trying to change them, they can recognize their importance and the potential to overcome.”

Jay Brandenburg-Nau uses ACT as a way to administer both traditional behavior therapy and psychotherapy. In this way, he helps clients to quit denying or avoiding negative feelings and teaches them to accept these moments, thoughts, or feelings as a natural part of life. They learn that deeper feelings may actually be appropriate responses to external stimuli and that they shouldn’t let these emotions consume them or prevent them from moving on.

From this mindfulness, clients of Jay Brandenburg-Nau ultimately teach themselves to weigh their emotions and responses appropriately and to let them past. Afterward, they are more prepared to accept their unique issues or hardships and make changes in their behavior as a result. They can make peace with the bad and move on to experience the good.

“It isn’t a novel approach to care nor an expensive one that would require medication or rigorous therapy,” says Jay Brandenburg-Nau. “And still, it’s useful for treating anxiety, depression, OCD, and even chronic pain or substance abuse in certain cases.”

Through ACT, clients can pick up on the specific ways they think about themselves or cope with negative sensations in the moment. They learn to gauge overreactions so that they are more prepared for any issues that require immediate action, and know when something is just meant to be felt and then forgotten. ACT will ultimately help them to break away from typical patterns of negativity or overwhelming feelings and begin to practice more optimistic behavior.

“By using ACT as a compass, I can help my clients understand that trying to control psychological experiences or emotions may, in fact, cause more harm than good,” says Jay Brandenburg-Nau. “Mindful behavior allows them to accept the negative and change their emotional state for the better.”

Integral BioSystems Announces the Chinese and New Zealand Patents on OcuSurf™ Innovation

Specialty drug delivery company Integral BioSystems LLC has won a Chinese Patent and a New Zealand Patent for its platform delivery innovation OcuSurf™

OcuSurf™ allows highly insoluble drug substances to be administered much more effectively than when formulated as simple suspensions”

— Dr. Shikha P. Barman

BEDFORD, MA, US, June 14, 2019 / — Boston area-based hybrid CRO/ innovation company Integral BioSystems has won a Chinese Patent (“Membrane-Adherent Self-Assembled Systems for Treatment of Ocular Disorders”, #ZL201580019868.9, issued on April 12, 2019) from CNIPA for one of its flagship inventions OcuSurf™. Additionally, the company has also received the New Zealand Patent (#725028, issued on April 30, 2019) from the New Zealand Intellectual Property Office.

OcuSurf™ is a novel, patented, membrane-mimetic delivery system for medications to treat disorders of the ocular surface and the anterior chamber of the eye. Products formulated in OcuSurf™ are highly bioavailable and tissue-permeating, making this innovation an excellent 505b2 strategy for drug reformulation.

The Details
A substantial number of ophthalmic drug products for ocular disorders are hydrophobic, or sparingly soluble in water, and formulated as suspensions. This results in less than 5% of each eye-drop actually absorbed by the target tissue. Such formulations typically contain a high concentration of drug to achieve a therapeutic effect. OcuSurf™ nanostructured emulsions are formulated into mucosa-penetrating, tissue absorbed nanoparticles, melting at body temperature to release dissolved drug at the requisite tissue site, allowing much less drug to be administered for equivalent or better therapeutic effect.

Using this technology, Integral BioSystems is developing an ophthalmic pipeline, as well as variants for other routes such as oral, dermal, and rectal. The company invites licensing-based collaborations that can benefit from this technology.

About Integral Biosystems
Since its formation in 2011, Integral BioSystems has established credibility in drug formulation, CMC consulting, analytical method development and methods qualification, as well as scale-up process engineering. Along with its strong presence as an ophthalmic product development CRO, the company also has expertise in other routes, including injectables, infusions, topical dermal gels/creams, and nanocrystals. Integral BioSystems provides expertise and know-how in developing both front-of-the-eye and back-of-the-eye products, offering complete development services in pre-formulation, including bioanalytical.

For companies seeking to develop a new product that is using a re-purposed drug, Integral offers its innovative delivery systems as licensable technologies to build value into prospective clients’ drug products through a 505b2 regulatory strategy. For companies seeking product life cycle management, Integral can help them quickly ascertain if Integral’s innovations can provide the desired improvements. With multiple billion-dollar drug products going off-patent, this presents a cost-effective way to develop an extended product life cycle with novel IP. In this manner, Integral will offer its insight and technological innovations in drug delivery to strategize and improve the customer’s product portfolio. In this manner, Integral BioSystems will offer its insight and technological innovations in drug delivery to strategize and improve the customer’s product portfolio.
