View our current and past Daisy Award recipients.
The DAISY Award is an international recognition program that celebrates the extraordinary compassion nurses provide their patients and families every day. Any UMMC nurse, whose care exhibits outstanding kindness, may be nominated by anyone who experiences or observes their exceptional level of care. This includes patients, their family members, co-workers, physicians and staff.
Examples of DAISY Award criteria include:
Winners will receive a certificate held in a handsome portfolio, proclaiming the recipient an "Extraordinary Nurse"; a DAISY Award pin; and a unique, hand-carved serpentine stone sculpture from Zimbabwe, entitled "A Healer's Touch".
