About the DAISY Award

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the autoimmune disease ITP in 1999.

During his hospitalization, the Barnes family deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he passed away they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. More than 2,500 health care facilities in 15 countries and 50 states now honor extraordinary nurses with The DAISY Award.

DAISY Award Honorees are recognized within their department, receive an award certificate and are publicly recognized. Roxi was surprised with this award by her coworkers and family on May 7th and a public reception was held on May 11th.


All nurses who exemplify MRHC’s mission and values, and demonstrate our vision on a daily basis, are eligible to be nominated. DAISY Award honorees are nurses who provide compassionate and remarkable care while demonstrating clinical excellence. Anyone – patients, patients’ family members, staff members, physicians, visitors, and volunteers – are welcome to nominate any nurse whom they believe is deserving of the award.
