Want to Say Thank You to Your Nurse?

HSHS St. Joseph’s and Sacred Heart hospitals Partner with DAISY Award to Honor Extraordinary Nursing Care
DAISY Award
The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. Awards are determined and given locally, and are driven by patient, family and staff nominations. There will be three awards given annually between our two hospitals.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, the family deeply appreciated not only the immense clinical skill, but also the enormous compassion shown to Pat and his family by his nurses. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way.

Please say thank you by sharing your story — or that of a loved one — of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget.
