The DAISY Award and The BEE Award
We are excited to invite you to nominate deserving individuals for the following awards, which are granted monthly. Your nominations play a vital role in recognizing and celebrating the exceptional contributions of healthcare professionals.
The DAISY Award
The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization established by his family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died in late 1999 at the age of 33 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little-known but not uncommon autoimmune 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 this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families. The Award is part of The DAISY Foundation’s mission to recognize the extraordinary, compassionate nursing care they provide patients and families every day.
The BEE Award
Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – Trophy Club has launched another recognition opportunity – The BEE Award. BEE stands for Being Extraordinary Every day. While The DAISY Award is reserved for Registered Nurses specifically, The BEE Award is open to any care team member. It is symbolic in the fact that bees are fundamentally crucial to a daisy’s ability to thrive. Both The DAISY and BEE Awards are presented monthly, and each honoree is selected from nominations received by patients, community members, and colleagues.
