About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 2000 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at the age of 33, from complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura. During Pat’s eight-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided not only to Pat but to everyone in his family. One of the goals they established in creating a foundation in Pat’s memory was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do everyday.

What Is The DAISY Award?
DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system. The DAISY Award is a nationwide program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care nurses give everyday.

Flagstaff Medical Center is proud to be a DAISY Award Hospital Partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor every month or quarter.

To find out more about the program, including the growing list of hospital partners, visit DAISYfoundation.org .

Each DAISY Award Honoree will be recognized at a public ceremony on their unit and will receive a beautiful certificate, a DAISY Award pin, and a handcarved stone sculpture entitled A Healer’s Touch. Additionally, everyone in the unit will celebrate with cinnamon rolls – a favorite of Patrick’s during his illness. The Barnes Family asks that whenever and wherever nurses smell that wonderful cinnamon aroma, they stop for a moment and think about how special they are.
