June DAISY Award Winners

Brandie Camp, RNBrandie Camp, RN

Family member of a patient's experience with Brandie:

"My dad was in the hospital and I stayed with him in his room for several nights. One night, I went to sit in the family room. You may say Brandie was just doing her job, but to me, she was very amazing with my dad. She was comforting to me and my dad. Brandie jumped every time my dad made any noise and she treated him like gold.  He kept her running all night and I never saw her just sitting. I will always remember her kind heart and the care she gave my dad. She was amazing with my father."

Venus Hagar, RNVenus Hagar, RN

Words of a patient Venus helped:

"Venus explained everything to me very well, and she gave step-by-step instructions before doing the test.  She was very sensitive and compassionate to my needs."

About the DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 from complications of an auto-immune disease. During his eight-week hospital stay, Patrick’s family was impressed by the care and compassion his nurses provided, not only to him, but to everyone in the family. They created the DAISY Award in Patrick’s memory to recognize those nurses who make a big difference in the lives of so many people.
