• The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

  • The Daisy AwardWhat is The DAISY Award?

    The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. It was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications from an auto-immune disease. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. One of Pat’s family’s goals in creating a Foundation in his memory was to establish an award program that would recognize extraordinary nursing care, like the kind Pat had received throughout his hospitalization.

    Littleton Adventist Hospital is Proud to be a DAISY Award Partner.

    Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony in her/his unit and will receive: 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 Cinnabon® cinnamon rolls — a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness.
