Our nurses at CHI St. Francis Health can be nominated with The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses ®. Nurses may be nominated by patients, families, and colleagues. The award recipient is chosen by a committee at St. Francis to receive The DAISY Award. The award will be presented at an award celebration ceremony. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day.
The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an autoimmune disease (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System). 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.
Say thank you by nominating a nurse today!
