The DAISY Award

Honor a Nurse at East Jefferson General Hospital

The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune System) Award honors the compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of an auto-immune disease. During his hospitalization, Patrick and his family were deeply touched by the care shown to them. They decided to create this award to recognize and appreciate the invaluable work of nurses.

It’s time to share your story of compassionate and skillful nursing care! Honorees can be nominated by physicians, nurses, patients, volunteers, and other staff. Nominate an incredible nurse from East Jefferson General Hospital, Lakeside Hospital, or LCMC Health Emergency Care Downtown.
