Bonnie and Mark Barnes spent their careers working as advertising and marketing executives. They were retired, growing wine grapes in Sonoma, CA, and enjoying life in 1999 when Mark’s son Patrick, age 33, developed the auto-immune disease, Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). Pat’s death was a terrible surprise to his family. However, the nursing care they experienced during Pat’s 8-week hospitalization compelled them to express their gratitude to nurses everywhere for the clinical skill and especially compassionate care nurses provide every day. This is why The Barnes’s created The DAISY Foundation™ (an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system) and The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses. Today, under Bonnie and Mark’s leadership, The DAISY Award is celebrated in over 4,700 healthcare facilities and colleges of nursing in all 50 United States plus 28 other countries.  Over 156,000 nurses have been honored, having been nominated by their patients, patient families, and colleagues. Each nomination (of which there have been nearly 2 million) tells the story of extraordinary compassion and care provided to a patient. The impact of these stories’ public DAISY Award celebrations on nurses and their organizations is well documented. The DAISY Award provides healthcare leaders the means to highlight all the “right” going on in their organizations, providing great role-modeling opportunities, and a way to make tangible the organizations’ mission and values. The result is a program that helps drive organizational culture, inspire and motivate extraordinary nursing, nourish teamwork, enhance nurse engagement, promote the professional image of nursing, and offset compassion fatigue with compassion satisfaction.



The DAISY Foundation Logo

The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) The care Patrick and his family received from Nurses while he was ill inspired the creation of The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses, an evidenced-based means of providing Nurse recognition and thanking Nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.           In addition to the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, the Foundation expresses gratitude to the nursing profession internationally in over 4,700 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing with recognition of direct care Nurses, Nurse-led Teams, Nurse Leaders, Nurses Advancing Health Equity, Nursing Faculty, Nursing Students, Lifetime Achievement in Nursing and through the J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Projects, Health Equity Grants and Medical Mission Grants. More information is available at http://DAISYfoundation.org.
