What is the DAISY Award?
The DAISY Award (http://www.daisyfoundation.org) is an international program that rewards and
celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by bedside nurses every day.
DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. It was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes by his family as a way to say thank you to nurses who provide excellent bedside care and compassion to patients.
