Over the past few months, I have learned more and more about mobility issues and how hard it can be to get around. As most of you know, John had ACL replacement surgery a few months ago. He spent almost two full months in a straight leg brace and was on crutches the entire time. Over the past month, he has slowly but surely moved from using crutches to getting around on his own.
This process was honestly really eye opening to me. I was shocked by how hard it was to get from place to place at times. How many times we had to stop and make sure it was safe for him to move forward or wait because people were not moving to let him through or crowding him. We had a couple of incidents where he was almost pushed over while on crutches.
After the past few months, I have really become aware of mobility and some of the things that go with it. I recently learned about the NMEDA Quality Assurance Program.
