About the DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Pat’s 8 week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided not only to Pat but to everyone in his family. So one of the goals they set in creating a Foundation in Pat’s memory was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do everyday.
I would like to nominate   as a deserving recipient of The DAISY Award. This nurse’s clinical skill and especially her/his compassionate care exemplify the kind of nurse that our patients, their families, and our staff recognize as an outstanding role model. She/he consistently meets all of the following criteria:
  • Displays a Positive Attitude

  • Creative Resolution of Patient Care

  • Models Excellent Interpersonal Skills
  • Extraordinary Clinical Skills

  • Establishes a Caring Presence

  • Exhibits Excellent Customer Service
Please describe a situation involving the nurse you are nominating that clearly demonstrates he/she meets the criteria for The DAISY Award:

Thank you for taking the time to nominate an extraordinary nurse for this award. Please tell us about yourself, so that we may include you in the celebration of this award should the nurse you nominated is chosen.
