The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is granted by the DAISY Foundation to nurses who demonstrate extraordinary compassion and nursing care, as well as exemplary communication skills. Each month, Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia selects a nurse from among the submitted nominees who embodies the principles of the award. Patients, visitors, CHOP nurses, physicians and other staff may nominate a deserving nurse by filling out this form.
The Daisy Foundation
DAISY stands for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Foundation was started by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at age 33 from complications of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura, a blood disorder. Patrick and his family were grateful for the extraordinary nursing care he received during his illness. For more information about the DAISY Foundation, go to daisyfoundation.org.
