Congratulations to our latest DAISY Award Winner,

Angela Stewart, RN 

Greene County General Hospital is proud to recognize our nurses with The DAISY Award For Extraordinary Nurses, a national program that honors the compassionate care and clinical excellence our nurses bring to their patients every day. Throughout the year, you may nominate a nurse for The DAISY Award by simply filling out the form and mailing it to Greene County General Hospital, 1185 N 1000 W, Linton, IN 47441, ATTN: DAISY Coordinator.

Angela Stewart, RN DAISY award winner October 2020

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, CA, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon auto-immune disease. The care Patrick 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. DAISY is an acronym that honor’s Patrick’s ordeal, standing for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.

Each year, a nurse will be selected by Greene County General Hospital’s nursing administration to receive The DAISY Award. 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.” The certificate reads: “In deep appreciation of all you do, who you are, and the incredibly meaningful difference you make in the lives of so many people.” The honoree will also be given a beautiful and meaningful sculpture called A Healer’s Touch, hand-carved by artists of the Shona Tribe in Africa.

One day while Pat was in the hospital, he asked his family to bring him a Cinnabon® cinnamon roll plus enough for all the nurses in his unit. With the help of Cinnabon’s parent company, FOCUS Brands, The DAISY Foundation carries on this tradition by serving Cinnabons to all the nurses in the Award recipient’s unit in thanks for everything they do for their patients and families.

Bonnie Barnes, President and Co-Founder of The DAISY Foundation recalls that “when Patrick was critically ill, our family experienced first-hand the remarkable skill and care nurses provide patients every day and night. Yet these unsung heroes are seldom recognized for the super-human work they do. The kind of work the nurses at Greene County General Hospital are called on to do every day epitomizes the purpose of The DAISY Award.”

“We are proud to be among the healthcare organizations participating in the DAISY Award program,” said Chief of Clinical Quality, Jill Raines. “Nurses are heroes everyday. It’s important that our nurses know their work is highly valued, and The DAISY Foundation provides a way for us to do that.”
