As Patrick’s family, we brainstormed what to do in his memory. We vividly recalled the skillful and compassionate care Patrick received from his nurses during his eight-week hospitalization. We wanted to say “thank you” to nurses everywhere by establishing a recognition program, The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award). Through this and other other recogntion programs, we honor the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day.
To submit a Daisy Award, please contact Melanie Mayfield at (469) 698-1000.
