Daisy Award


                A graphic for the Daisy Award

The 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 international award to say thank you to nurses everywhere.

If you know a nurse that epitomizes these values and skills, take a few moments to nominate them by filling out the form below.
