The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses

Did you have an exceptional experience at Stamford Hospital? Did your nurse provide compassionate care? You can show your thanks by nominating him or her for The DAISY Award, an international program created to recognize the super-human work nurses do for patients and families every day.

Stamford Health joins more than 3,300 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing in all 50 states and 18 countries committing to honor nurses with The DAISY Award.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!
