BEE & DAISY Awards
The DAISY Award
The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate nurses that provide care every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of 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.
Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse made a difference you will never forget! If the nurse you nominated is selected as a DAISY recipient, you will be notified.
Nomination forms can be found inserted into patient bedside booklets or at the nurse station alongside the nomination dropbox, and in lobbies/waiting areas.
The BEE Award
The BEE Award was established in 2016 by the nurses at Jewish Hospital to recognize the extraordinary members of our staff that go Beyond Exceptional Expectations (BEE). Those eligible for the BEE Award include ann hospital employees outside of nursing.
Just as the DAISY cannot survive without the BEE, the nurses cannot survive without the outstanding teamwork provided by other colleagues.
Delta Health is pleased to recognize our colleagues who are extraordinary every day. Please tell us your story of one of our remarkable colleagues! You can find the BEE nomination forms on any of the bulletin boards, the Delta Health Intranet, or as your Department Manager for a form.
