About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of the auto-immune disease, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP), at the age of 33. 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. To honor Patrick’s memory and the extraordinary nursing care he received, his family created The DAISY Foundation.

What is The DAISY Award?
The DAISY Award is an international program rewarding and celebrating the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses every day. Scotland Health Care System is proud to be a DAISY Award Partner, recognizing our nurses with this special honor quarterly.
