The dictionary defines recovery as 1) a return to a normal state of health, mind, or strength and 2) the action or process of regaining possession or control of something stolen or lost.
“After Surgery in Germany, I Wanted Vicodin, Not Herbal Tea” by Firoozeh Dumas talks about how recovery from medical procedures is different in other countries and what we might learn.
Merriam Webster defines safety as 1) the condition of being safe from undergoing or causing hurt, injury, or loss and 2) a device (as on a weapon or a machine) designed to prevent inadvertent or hazardous operation.
The question for me then becomes how can we practice safety and be a safety for all?
