Nominate a Nurse for 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. Columbus Community Hospital is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner and we recognize one of our nurses with this special honor each quarter.
The DAISY Foundation – the sponsor of the DAISY Award – was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the autoimmune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33.
The name for the DAISY Award comes from the acronym DAISY which is a disease that attacks the immune system.
During Pat’s eight-week hospitalization, Pat’s family was awestruck by the care and compassion Pat’s nurses provided not only to Pat, but to everyone in the family. So, they created a foundation in Pat’s memory to recognize extraordinary nurses.
