Nominate an Extraordinary Nurse in Your Hospital
Nurses are the backbone of the clinical side of medicine. As a hospital employee working on the business side of healthcare, have you been inspired or empowered by a nurse working in the hospital trenches who ensures patients get the best care possible? If so, you can nominate an extraordinary nurse for the DAISY Award®.
According to The Daisy Foundation™ website:
The DAISY Foundation was created in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at the age of 33 from complications of an autoimmune disease [hence the name, an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System]. Patrick received extraordinary care from his nurses, and his family felt compelled to express their profound gratitude for the compassion and skill nurses bring to patients and families every day. The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses celebrates nurses in more than 2,400 healthcare facilities around the world. For more information about The DAISY Award and the Foundation’s other recognition of nurses, faculty and students, visit www.DAISYFoundation.org.
The nurse hero you nominate must demonstrate compassion, and will be reviewed based on the following criteria:
• Clinical Knowledge
• Resource Management
Nominations began Nov. 1, 2017 and will be accepted until 5:00 p.m. ET on March 30, 2018. Honorees will be notified in June 2018.
