The DAISY Award-Logo Health Eq.png

Boone Memorial kicked-off its DAISY Award program in January, 2021. The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. The DAISY Nurse Leader Award recognizes nurses who are extraordinary in the impact they have on compassionate patient care. Honorees can be any nurse leader who impacts patient care directly including supervisors, managers, educators or nurses who specialize in case management, informatics or patient flow.

This Nurse Leader impacts staff and/or the patient care they manage by:

  • Role modeling extraordinary behavior

  • Creating an environment where attributes of trust, compassion, mutual respect, continued professional development and ethical behavior are modeled and supported

  • Motivating staff with a shared vision and enthusiasm to achieve better outcomes for themselves and for their patients

  • Promoting and enhancing the image of nursing within the organization, the community and the profession

The Boone Memorial Hospital DAISY Award Committee established the following criteria, to be used in the selection process:

*Any RN, LPN, or APRN is eligible to receive the DAISY Award
