"She began her nursing career as a tuberculosis nurse in Baltimore, Maryland, having graduated from Johns Hopkins Hospital in 1902. She recognised that effective treatment of the disease could only come from the separation of patients with tuberculosis from patients with other illnesses. She was also keen to delegate assessment and treatment of the patients to nurses rather than doctors. Although her methods with criticised by the Tuberculosis Association, La Motte became the superintendent of the Tuberculosis Division of the Baltimore Health Department by 1913. Inspired by her work, she published her first book, The Tuberculosis Nurse in 1914." - Wikipedia. ; The History of American Nursing; Ex-Library; Vol. 17; xxiii, 292, 3 pages.
