The DAISY Award

Kaweah Health has partnered with The DAISY Foundation to offer our very deserving nurses The DAISY Award.

Established in 1999, the DAISY Foundation was formed by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 from complication of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care that Patrick received when hospitalized for eight weeks profoundly touched his family and the DAISY Foundation was formed. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. Over 2,200+ health care facilities in all 50 states and over 15 countries are now committed to honoring their nurses with The DAISY Award.

The DAISY Award celebrates nurses who provide extraordinary, compassionate and skillful care every day. It was created to recognize and say "thank you" to exceptional nurses who go above and beyond the call of duty.

If you have been the recipient of or have witnessed extraordinary care by a nurse and would like to nominate him or her, please fill out and submit the nomination form below.
