The DAISY award is an award recognizing nurses for delivering skillful, compassionate care. DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The award was created in memory of Patrick Barnes who died at the age of 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The DAISY Foundation was established by Patrick's family to keep his spirit alive. The primary mission of the DAISY Foundation is to express profound gratitude to nurses for the work they do for patients and their families every day.
