Johns Hopkins Care at Home is proud to join the DAISY Foundation in celebrating the compassionate care our nurses provide to our patients and families every day. The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award celebrates extraordinary nurses internationally by recognizing nurses for their dedication, skillful care, fortitude, and compassion.
Established by the Barnes family in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an autoimmune disease, The DAISY Award was created to honor not only the clinical skill but also the sensitivity, compassion, and kindness they experienced during Patrick’s eight weeks of hospitalization.
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.
