The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

In 2008, Hallmark Health System (HHS) joined over 600 healthcare organizations throughout the country in the DAISY Foundation. DAISY stands for “Diseases Attacking the Immune System”. The organization was founded November, 1999 in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 from complications of ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura).

The DAISY Foundation was established to honor nurses. The Barnes family was awestruck by the care and compassion Pat received from his nurses during his 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: The J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Projects
• Honoring nursing faculty: The DAISY Faculty Award

The American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) and its chapters collaborate to help expand DAISY to hospitals throughout the United States. American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) supports The DAISY Award for all Magnet® and Pathways to Excellence organizations – and those on the journey.

Who can nominate the Nurses? 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 … as well as great clinical skill. Every nomination tells a story. To nominate a nurse, please  click here  to submit your story.
