The Daisy Awards
For extraordinary nurses
Nurses work hard and deserve more recognition. The Daisy Awards are presented to nurses who are nominated for extraordinary compassionate and dedicated care. If you would like to honor a nurse at Kona Hospital, please use the nomination form below.
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 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. To learn more, visit DAISYFoundation.org
Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget!
