Peninsula Regional Medical Center has a new way to recognize outstanding nurses: the DAISY Award.
Patients, family members and visitors at Peninsula Regional Medical Center, as well as PRMC staff members, physicians and volunteers, are invited to nominate nurses who have provided exceptional care by visiting http://www.peninsula.org/DaisyAward and filling out the online form.
The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation, based in Glen Ellen, Calif., was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Barnes died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little-known but not uncommon autoimmune disease. The care he and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.
Each month, a nurse will be selected by a council of staff from all patient care areas within PRMC to receive the award. Recipients will be chosen based on the following criteria: job performance, exceptional interpersonal skills, establishing a special connection with the patient and/or family, and making a significant difference in the life of a patient. At a presentation given in front of the nurse's colleagues, physicians, patients, and visitors, the honoree will receive a certificate commending her or him for being an "Extraordinary Nurse," as well as a sculpture called "A Healer's Touch," hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.
Please take a moment to nominate a deserving nurse for their hard work, dedication and skills that can make such a difference in the lives of Peninsula Regional Medical Center's community.
