The Johns Hopkins Hospital is proud to honor its outstanding nurses with the DAISY Award — an international recognition program that celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide to patients and families every day.
The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an autoimmune disease. The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this award to say thank-you to nurses everywhere.
Nominate a NurseMore About The DAISY Award
Anyone can nominate a nurse – patients, family members, visitors, physicians, referring providers, staff members and students – by sharing a story of the exceptional care the nurse provided. Each season, one extraordinary Johns Hopkins Care at Home nurse will be selected to receive the DAISY Award by a committee of peers and patient advocates.
Each DAISY Award recipient will be recognized at a ceremony and will receive a DAISY Award certificate, a DAISY Award pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer’s Touch.
