Honoring the compassion and care nurses provide their patients every day.


The DAISY (Diseases Attacking the Immune SYstem) Award is an international recognition program that honors and celebrates the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day. The DAISY Foundation was established by the family of J. Patrick Barnes after he died from complications of the auto-immune disease ITP in 1999. During his hospitalization, they deeply appreciated the care and compassion shown to Patrick and his entire family. When he died, they felt compelled to say “thank you” to nurses in a very public way. Please say thank you by sharing your story of how a nurse at Pullman Regional Hospital made a difference you will never forget!



Our DAISY Award committee created the following criteria based on our hospital's core values.  

The nurse:

  • Established a special connection with the patient and their family.
  • Worked well with the healthcare team to meet patient and family needs.
  • Included the patient and family in the planning of their care.
  • Did an excellent job educating the patient and their family.
  • Made the patient and their family feel comfortable.
  • Exemplifies the mission, vision and values of Pullman Regional Hospital.
  • Demonstrates extraordinary clinical skills in the delivery of compassionate patient care (went above and beyond).
