Nominate a Nurse for the Daisy Award
The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses everyday. Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women’s Hospital are proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital Partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor every month.
DAISY Award honorees personify Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women’s Hospital’s remarkable patient experience. These nurses consistently demonstrate excellence through their clinical expertise and extraordinary compassionate care, and they are recognized as outstanding role models in our nursing community.
Each month Methodist Hospital and Methodist Women's Hospital recognize remarkable nurses for the contribution they make to our patients.
The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Pat’s eight week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided not only to Pat but to everyone in his family. So one of the goals they set in creating a Foundation in Pat’s memory was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do everyday.
