Nominate a Nurse

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes the superhuman work that nurses do every day.

This award was established by the DAISY Foundation – a foundation for the elimination of Diseases Attacking the Immune System in memory of Patrick J. Barnes. Mr. Barnes’ parents established the foundation in Patrick’s memory because they experienced the skills and the caring and compassion of many nurses firsthand. The award is given each month to an outstanding nurse at St. Vincent Healthcare.

Anyone can nominate a nurse for the DAISY Award. The DAISY Award committee selects one nurse who exemplifies the following characteristics each month:

  • Positive attitude
  • Consistent focus on meeting patient and family needs
  • Healing presence
  • Demonstrates collaboration with all members of the healthcare team
  • Excellent interpersonal skills
  • Exemplifies St. Vincent Healthcare's Service Behaviors, Mission, and Values

Each month’s winner receives a nominee pin, a DAISY Award recipient pin, a Healer’s Touch hand carved statue and an award certificate. In addition, the selected nurse’s unit receives a banner to post for the month and freshly baked cinnamon rolls for everyone on the day the award is presented.
