The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of an auto-immune disease called ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura). The Barnes Family were overwhelmed by the kindness and compassion of the nursing team who cared for Patrick. After his passing they created a foundation to express gratitude to extraordinary nurses everywhere, using the acronym, DAISY, standing for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. Hospitals around the globe, now use the DAISY program to recognize nurses for the extraordinary skillful, compassionate care they provide to patients and families, each and every day. Nashville General Hospital is proud to launch the DAISY Program at NGH for patients and their families to honor and recognize members of the NGH Nursing team for their tremendous care and expertise.

“Hafsa came in one night as my nurse after someone told me that they were short-staffed - that was never a problem though! She was caring and made sure that I had everything that I wanted and needed. I could see that she loved her job, and really cared for her patients. All questions were answered, and her frequent visits were greatly appreciated. Sometimes it gets lonely at night when you are in a room by yourself, but Hafsa was so comforting..”
