The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, a young man whose life was cut short by autoimmune disease. In the words of Patrick's family: We vividly recalled the skillful and compassionate care Patrick received from his nurses during his eight-week hospitalization. We wanted to say “thank you” to nurses everywhere by establishing a recognition program, The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award). Through this and other recognition programs, we honor the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day.
