DAISY Award

The Daisy Award is your opportunity to say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse or midwife made a difference you will never forget.

What is the DAISY Foundation?

 
An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System, The DAISY Foundation was formed in America in November 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family. You can find out more about the DAISY Foundation on their website.
 
Each DAISY Award honoree will be recognised at a ceremony in their ward or department and will receive a DAISY Award pin, certificate and a hand-carved sculpture A Healer’s Touch. Nominate an extraordinary nurse or midwife
 
The DAISY awards are judged and presented every quarter.
