The DAISY Award
Recognition for Nursing Excellence
The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J.
Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease. The Barnes
Family was awestruck by the clinical skills, caring and compassion of
the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this national award
to say thank you to nurses everywhere.
Nominate an Extraordinary Nurse Today!
Look for nomination forms in patient care areas. DAISY Awards will be presented
around the 15th of every month to a nurse whose clinical skill and especially
his/her compassionate care exemplify the kind of nurse that our patients,
their families, and our staff recognizes as an outstanding role model.
Nominations are due by the 1st of each month and can be returned to any
DAISY Award nomination box or to Nursing Administration. Winners of The
DAISY Award will receive a certificate, a hand-carved statue, a bottle
of Cinnabon® cinnamon, a daisy pin and cinnamon rolls for his/her
unit. If you have any questions please call 812-885-3314.
