2019 DAISY Award nominations

2019 DAISY Award nominations

It is that time of year for DAISY Award nominations. The DAISY Award was developed by the family of Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33. They felt that his nursing care was extraordinary, and they wanted to recognize and thank the nurses who do this caring and compassionate work every day. The DAISY Award program recognizes and honors the super-human work that nurses do for patients and families every day.

Nurses can be nominated by anyone, including patients, family members, nurses, physicians, other clinicians and staff – anyone who experiences or observes extraordinary compassionate care being provided by a nurse. The deadline for nomination submissions is May 3. The DAISY Award will be presented during Hospital Week, May 13 – May 17. If you have questions, please email Kim Jorgensen.
