The Mercy Health Network of Central Iowa annually awards one nurse from each of it affiliated hospitals who exemplifies the delivery of extraordinary care in the hospital or clinic setting with the “The Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses”.
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 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 share your story of how a CCH nurse made a difference in your experience while you or a loved one was a patient at Central Community Hospital. Deadline to submit your story is April 13, 2018.
