The award recipient is chosen by a committee at Campbell County Health
to receive The DAISY Award. Awards are presented throughout the year at
celebrations attended by the Honoree’s colleagues, patients, and
visitors. Each Honoree receives a certificate commending them as an "Extraordinary
Nurse." Honorees also receive a DAISY Award pin and a beautiful and
meaningful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists
of the Shona Tribe in Zimbabwe.
Honorees can be found in the
DAISY Award section of the Health Connect Blog.
About the DAISY Foundation
DAISY Foundation is a nonprofit established in
memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. For those who don’t
know, DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. Patrick
died at 33 years old in 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic
Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The
care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired
this award for those nurses who make a profound difference in the lives
of their patients and families. Learn more about the DAISY Foundation at
