The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the exceptional compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY (Disease Attacking the Immune System) Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999.
Expressions of gratitude from patients and families go a long way in helping nurses cope with their high-stress work and help keep burnout at bay. Given the shortage of nurses in the United States, it is important that we retain as many nurses as possible, and meaningful statements of gratitude like yours make a difference!
In your nomination form, please write as much detail as you can not only about what your nurse did that made a difference in your experience but also explain how your nurse’s care made you feel.
Thank you for taking the time to nominate your nurse for The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses!
