VIDEO: Nurse Kathleen Bartholomew’s Lessons From Nursing to the World — Keeping Patients Save and Saving Lives

Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, gives a mesmerizing TEDx Talk about the nursing profession, saving lives, and the culture and hierarchy inside hospitals and within the nursing profession.

She has been a national speaker for the past 14 years. She was acknowledged in 2010 as one of the top 20 people in the US changing the culture of healthcare by Health Leaders Media. Her focus has been on the relationships and hierarchy between nurses, between doctors and nurses, and between the layers of people and functions that need to run smoothly to keep patients safe.

The registered nurse recalls how a member of the cleaning staff of a hospital she was working at saved a patient’s life. And she recounts how healthcare professionals interact both negatively and positively while doing their work of saving lives and keeping patients safe while in their care. Ms. Bartholomew is the author of five books and speaks to hospital boards, the military, senior leadership, and front line staff about patient safety, communication, leadership and power.
