The BEE Award Nomination Form

The DAISY Award

The DAISY Award: extraordinary nurses. Honoring nurses internationally in memory of J. Patrick Barnes

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!

Please describe a specific situation or story that demonstrates how this nurse made a meaningful difference in your care.

Thank you for taking the time to nominate an extraordinary nurse for this award! We’d love to include you in the celebration if your nurse is selected for a DAISY Award. Please tell us a little about yourself.
