DAISY Award Nomination for Nurses

About the DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Pat’s 8 week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided not only to Pat but to every one in his family.

One of the goals of the DAISY Foundation is to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in peoples lives by the superhuman work they do each day.

What Is The DAISY Award?

The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses everyday.

Our hospital is proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital Partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor every month.

To find out more about the program, including the growing list of Hospital Partners, please go to www.DAISYfoundation.org.

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit and will receive: a beautiful certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled “A Healer’s Touch.” Additionally, every one in the unit will celebrate with Cinnabon – cinnamon rolls – a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness. The Barnes Family asks that whenever and wherever nurses smell that wonderful cinnamon aroma, they stop for a moment and think about how special they are.
