About the DAISY Award 

The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from an auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospital stay, his family deeply appreciated the care and compassion that Patrick received. When he died, his family felt compelled to say "thank you" to nurses in a very public way. 

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit and will receive the following: a beautiful certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer's Touch. Additionally, everyone in the unit will celebrate with cinnamon rolls – a favorite of Patrick's during his illness. The Barnes Family asks that whenever and wherever nurses smell that wonderful cinnamon aroma, they stop for a moment and think about how special they are.
