The Community Medical Center Daisy Award Committee invites nominations for recognizing nurses for exemplary nursing care. Each month one nurse will be chosen to receive the award.
The DAISY Award is a nation-wide program that recognizes nursing excellence. In memory of Patrick, the Barnes family recalled the skillful and compassionate care Patrick received from his nurses during his eight-week hospitalization. They wanted to say “thank you” to nurses everywhere by establishing a recognition program - The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses (The DAISY Award) - to honor the super-human work nurses do every day at the bedside.
The DAISY Award recipient will be recognized at a ceremony and will receive a certificate, a DAISY Award signature lapel pin and a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch. Additionally, the unit or department of the recipient will receive Cinnabon’s cinnamon rolls a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness- with the sentiment that the heavenly aroma will remind them how special they are and how important their work is.
DAISY Award recipients are registered nurses who exemplify the nursing values: Extraordinary Compassion, Courage, Integrity, in every situation!
These individuals consistently demonstrate excellence in the delivery of patient care and promotion of their professional nursing practice.
