Nominations for the DAISY Award come from patients, family members and colleagues. Read about each winner below to find out why they received this recognition.
- Casie Corser, RN, is a nurse on the Mother/Baby Unit. “Casie helped me so much and never discriminated against me, [despite the situation my child and I were dealing with.]”
- Pam Nellis, RN, is a nurse on the Oncology Unit (C5). “Pam had the understanding of a mother, as well as the confidence and skills of a nurse.” In her nomination letter, a mother of seven explained that she was unable to stay in the hospital because she had to get home to her children, who had no other childcare options. “She understood my feelings and spoke with the doctor to set up my discharge that evening. I was home to my children by 8 p.m. that night.”

About the DAISY Award
The DAISY Award is supported by the not-for-profit DAISY (Diseases 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 had a disease that attacked his body and was in the hospital for a long time. His nurses did such a great job with him that the Barnes family created an award that continues to recognize the excellent work nurses do every day.
