The DAISY Foundation

Each month, Cross Country Healthcare honors one of its nurses with the prestigious DAISY Award. The DAISY Award was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, whose life was shortened by an autoimmune disease at the age of 33. To honor his memory, but also to recognize the nursing excellence that so impressed them during his hospitalization, they came up with the acronym D.A.I.S.Y., which stands for “diseases attacking the immune system.” DAISY Award recipients are selected based on special acts of kindness and compassion they provide patients and their families as well as outstanding clinical skill.
