Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital Launches DAISY Award Program to Recognize Excellence in Nursing

Missouri Baptist Sullivan Hospital (MBSH) proudly launched its DAISY Award Program on March 22, 2021, and announced that the hosptial’s first DAISY award will be presented during National Nurses Week in May 2021.

“As a recognition program, The DAISY Award is inspirational and a wonderful morale booster for nurses,” said Carmen Bartolotta, vice president of patient care services and chief nursing officer at MBSH. “Our nurses do so much for their patients, so it’s an honor to be able to express such personal, heartfelt appreciation for the important difference they make in all the lives they touch.”

The DAISY Award was established by The DAISY Foundation, which was created in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at the age of 33 in November 1999 of complications from Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), an autoimmune disease. DAISY is an acronym for ‘Diseases Attacking the Immune System.’ The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills and compassionate care that the nurses provided for Patrick during the last weeks of his life, so they created this international award to recognize and thank nurses. The DAISY Award Program honors nurses wherever they practice, in whatever role they serve, and throughout their careers, from nursing students through their lifetime achievements.

MBSH is asking the community to help honor and celebrate the compassion and skill of the hospital’s extraordinary nurses by sharing their personal stories. If you or your loved one had a wonderful experience with an MBSH nurse, you’re encouraged to share your story and nominate this nurse by visiting: http://www.daisynomination.org/0014u00001nPtZNAA0.

Thank you to all the incredible nurses who continually care for their patients with extraordinary skill and compassion. We’re grateful for all you do!
