The Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes the very special work nurses do every day. The award was established by the Daisy Foundation (see their website for detailed information www.daisyfoundation.org)
In memory of J. Patrick Barnes: Barnes’ parents established the foundation in their son’s memory, as they had experienced firsthand the skills and compassionate care of several nurses.
The award is awarded quarterly to outstanding nurses nominated by patients, families and professional colleagues in over 315 hospitals throughout our nation. Daisy Award honorees personify the remarkable patient care experience at Pinnacle Hospital. The Nurse must demonstrate excellence through clinical expertise, skill and compassionate care. As a Daisy Honoree, the Nurse is recognized as extraordinary role model in the nursing community.
