Honor a Teton County Nurse That Touched Your Life
The DAISY Award is an international program that rewards and celebrates
the extraordinary clinical skill and compassionate care given by nurses
every day. St. John’s Medical Center is proud to be a DAISY Award
Partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this special honor every quarter.
About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick
Barnes who died of complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic
Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym
for diseases attacking the immune system.) During Pat’s eight- week
hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his
nurses provided not only to Pat but to everyone in his family. So one
of the goals they set in creating a Foundation in Pat’s memory was
to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference
in the lives of so many people by the super-human work they do every day.
