About The DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the Barnes family in memory of  J. Patrick Barnes who died from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura  (ITP) at the age of 33.  Having been touched by the remarkable care, clinical skills and compassion demonstrated by nurses during Patrick's illness, the Barnes family made it their mission to recognize exceptional nurses around the country. Click here to view a video of DAISY Cofounder, Bonnie Barnes, explaining why she and her husband felt compelled to start the DAISY foundation and the DAISY award.

What is The DAISY Award?

The DAISY Award is a program that rewards excellence in nursing. It was created by The DAISY Foundation to recognize the clinical skills, extraordinary compassion and care exhibited by nurses everyday. The award is given monthly to outstanding nurses in more than 2,300 health care facilities, in all 50 states and 15 countries. 

The DAISY Award recipients are recognized at a public ceremony and receive a:

  • Certificate
  • DAISY Award signature lapel pin
  • Hand-carved stone sculpture entitled A Healer's Touch

Additionally, the unit or department of the recipient will receive 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.

Who is eligible for The DAISY Award?

DAISY Award recipients personify UnityPoint Health - Des Moines' remarkable patient experience and our values of Foster Unity, Own the Moment, Champion Excellence and Seize Opportunities. These individuals consistently demonstrate excellence through clinical expertise, extraordinary service and compassionate care and are recognized as outstanding role models in the nursing community. View past DAISY winners at UnityPoint Health - Des Moines.
