Honoring MRH nurses and their commitment to care

Marlette Regional Hospital is proud to honor and recognize our outstanding nurses with the DAISY Award — an international recognition program that celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide to patients, and their families, every day.

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an autoimmune disease. The Barnes family was awestruck by the clinical skills and compassion of the nurses who cared for Patrick, so they created this award to say thank you to nurses everywhere because they believe nurses are truly “unsung heroes.” The DAISY Award recipients are registered nurses, who exemplify the nursing values. Extraordinary Compassion, Courage, Integrity, in every situation! These individuals consistently demonstrate excellence in the delivery of patient care and the promotion of their professional nursing practice.

Anyone can nominate a nurse for the DAISY Award. Excellent nurses demonstrate many outstanding characteristics and qualities that go beyond what is expected. The DAISY Award committee selects one nurse who exemplifies the following characteristics:

Each DAISY Award recipient will be recognized at a public ceremony and will receive a DAISY Award certificate, a DAISY Award lapel pin, and a hand-carved stone sculpture titled A Healer’s Touch.
