The DAISY Awards

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honours and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses & midwives 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 hospitalisation, 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.

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognised at a public ceremony in their ward or department and will receive: a beautiful certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch.
