Memorial Hermann Health System has partnered with the D.A.I.S.Y. Foundation’s recognition program, honoring the work nurses do at the bedside every day, focusing on the compassionate care and memorable moments our nurses provide their patients and patient’s families; as well as great clinical skill.
In the late 1990’s the DAISY foundation was created by the family of Patrick Barnes in response to recognize the extraordinary care that Patrick received by his nurses. Patrick was hospitalized at the age of 33 for the auto-immune disease ITP (Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) and passed away after an 8-week hospitalization. Throughout that time, Patrick and his family experienced kindness, compassion, and clinical expertise of the nurses who cared for him. The DAISY program was their way of saying ‘thank-you’ to nurses everywhere.
As the program continues to grow with each passing Honoree, the constant reminder of what truly Extraordinary Nurses we have is ever present!
