Nominate a Nurse

DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses The DAISY Award program is a nationally recognized award program. Reynolds Memorial Hospital (RMH) has joined the growing network of healthcare organizations across the country that currently participate in the award program created by the Daisy Foundation. The organization’s mission is to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate care that nurses provide to patients and families every day.

The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

Nurses may be nominated by patients, families, and co-workers.
