The DAISY Award

DaisyLogo_1The 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 nominaton 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 885-3314.
