  • How can a profession with amazing potential for human connection fall short and fail to offer compassionate care? And why do nurses too often go in the other direction—and do harm? Registered Nurse Kathleen Bartholomew dissects the hierarchical culture within the nursing profession, and examines why nurses who are devalued and shamed are much more likely to make mistakes and relay critical patient information to a physician. Kathleen Bartholomew, RN, MN, has been a national speaker for the past fourteen years. She was nominated in 2010 by Health Leaders Media as one of the top 20 people in the U. S. changing the culture of healthcare - specifically for calling attention to the dangerous impact on patient care of disruptive behavior by medical professionals, as well as the critical need for better physician-nurse communication. Kathleen is the author of five books and is best known for her pioneering work, “Ending Nurse to Nurse Hostility” (2006), which offered the first comprehensive and compassionate look at the etiology and impact of horizontal violence on both patients and nurses. As a health care culture expert, Kathleen now speaks about patient safety, communication, leadership and power to hospital boards, the military, senior leadership, and front line staff. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

    Dismantle the hierarchy. All healthcare providers should work as a team for the best quality of patient care. Thank you for sharing 😃

    I wish she was my boss or nurse admistrator. All RNs Physician cafeteria workers housekeeping secretaries patient observers everyone is a valuable asset to a hospital or long term care health care facility. Unfortunately healthcare has become business oriented industry. Short staffed where RNs on average have 6 to 10 pts. One housekeeper night shift available for entire hospital.

    Very true and very inspiring! Kudos to you Kathleen! I cannot tell you the number of organizations I had to leave because of the hostility and negativity. Finally found one company where I was paid the least, but I stayed because the environment was so positive, supportive and fair. If you take care of your employees, you don't need to waste money on team building events; people will automatically be motivated to give their 100% to the job if they feel they are genuinely valued. All organizations need to address this issue, as it ultimately affects their bottom line.

    I always tell my staff that no one is more important than anyone else: we are all equally important and we all must work together to function. Titles are thrown out the door.

    I needed this talk indeed. I am at the moment through the worst horrendous experience as student nurse. I could not find consolation why things went wrong on placement. What I did wrong? but now I can understand that without support, team job and honest approach nurses are nothing.

    Bullying in nursing IS a problem. My dream was to work in urgent care. And i made that dream come true, but after 3 yrs of bullying (from the hierarchy) and the hours (13 hr days 6 sometimes 7 days a week is wayyyy to much) i had to quit. I was nearly suicidal. I quit and went to work in a factory for a yr, worked on my mental health and went back.

    It's a shame that this video has less than 35000 views.. Even if it's only healthcare providers who see this video, it should be shared, conversations be sparked.. Everyone should be sharing this video..

    I just randomly came across this video today. I'm an Athletic Trainer and currently applying to nursing school. EVERYTHING you've said in this video needs to be applied to so many companies, organizations and institutions. Thank you, Kathleen! I hope to meet you in person one day once I become an RN. I shared this video with a friend of mine who is also in nursing school. Peace and God Bless!

    This is an excellent lesson about humility and lateral violence. I'm starting my nurse residency in the Neuro ICU, and I'll remember this lesson as I continue learning to be a good nurse.
