Nominate a Nurse

The DAISY Award is used to recognize nurses at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center for their excellence in patient care. Nurses use their education, skill and compassion to make a difference in the lives of others. Please join us in thanking those extraordinary nurses who are our "unsung heroes."

Every month, Cincinnati Children’s will award one nurse the DAISY award in special recognition of their outstanding clinical skills, compassionate care and commitment to excellence. If you know of a nurse who deserves this award, nominating the nurse is a great way to say "Thank You."

The DAISY Award is supported by the not-for-profit DAISY (Disease Attacking the Immune System) Foundation. Bonnie and J. Mark Barnes created this foundation and award as a way to remember their son, J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died of complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP). During his prolonged hospital stay, his nurses did such a great job of caring for him, that the Barnes family created an award that continues to recognize nurses throughout the country every day.
