What is the DAISY Award?

The DAISY Award was created with a goal of ensuring that nurses know how deserving they are of our society's profound respect for the education, training, brainpower and skill they put into their work, and especially for the heart with which they deliver their care.

The foundation was created after the death of Patrick Barnes. During his hospitalization, his family experienced the best of nursing. What they did not expect was the way the nurses delivered that care with the kindness and compassion.

Just days after Patrick died, his family began talking about what they would do to help fill the giant hole in their hearts that Patrick's passing had left.

His wife came up with the acronym, DAISY which stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem.

The DAISY Award was designed to honor the work nurses do every day at the bedside.

The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. CAMC is proud to be a DAISY Award partner, recognizing our exceptional RNs and LPNs with honor.

Nurses may be nominated by anyone in the organization: patients, family members, other nurses, physicians or other clinicians and staff. Tell your story today and nominate a nurse at camc.org/Daisy.
