Nominate a Nurse for a DAISY Award
The DAISY Foundation was established to honor nurses.
The DAISY Foundation was founded in November 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died, at 33 years old, from complications of idiopathic thrombocytopenia purpura. His family was awestruck by the care and compassion received from nurses during the 8-week hospitalization.
DAISY recognizes and says thank you to nurses by:
- honoring the super-human work nurses do at the bedside every day
- funding research
- honoring nursing faculty
Nominate a Nurse
Nominations can be submitted by patients, families, colleagues, physicians and other staff. The DAISY award is focused on the compassionate care and memorable moments nurses provide their patients and great clinical skill.
