What is the DAISY Foundation?

The DAISY Award

An acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem, The DAISY Foundation was formed in November 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The nursing care Patrick received when hospitalized profoundly touched his family.

The DAISY Award is an international recognition program started in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Pat’s family experienced first-hand the difference his nurses made in his care through clinical excellence and outstanding compassionate care. The family created The DAISY Award to express gratitude to nurses and to enable other patients, families, and staff to thank and honor their special nurses.


Andrus on Hudson is a DAISY Award partner recognizing one nurse annually with the DAISY Award. These nurses provide compassionate care and exceptional dedication, showcasing their profound impact on our patients and families. Do you know an extraordinary nurse who has provided you with excellent care here at Andrus on Hudson? Nominate them today for the DAISY Award.
