The DAISY Award®

WHAT: An ongoing recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful and compassionate care nurses provide every day. This program is active in over 4,800 healthcare facilities around the world.

WHY: Established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died from complications of ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated not only the immense clinical skill, but also the enormous compassion shown to Pat and his family by his nurses. When Pat died, they felt compelled to say “thank you!” to nurses in a very personal way.

HOW: Honorees are nominated by patients, families, colleagues and chosen by a committee of their peers.

DAISY Honorees receive a certificate, DAISY Award® pin and hand-carved “Healers Touch” sculpture. Nominees receive a
beautiful daisy pin.
