Shirley Ryan AbilityLab Honors Nursing Excellence with the DAISY Award

Body

In December 2017, Shirley Ryan AbilityLab announced its participation in the DAISY Awards, an international program that recognizes nursing excellence.

Sponsored by the DAISY Foundation, the DAISY Awards honor and celebrate the skillful, compassionate care nurses provide every day.

Criteria for DAISY Awards

Body

To be considered for a DAISY Award, nurses first must be nominated by a current or former patient, a family member or caregiver of a patient, or by an employee for the life-changing, exceptional care they’ve provided. DAISY nominations hinge on the concept of going “above and beyond” in communication and critical thinking skills, commitment to the highest nursing practice standards, building trust with patients and families, and focus on patient and family goals. After nominations are submitted, the DAISY Award committee (comprising stakeholders from throughout Shirley Ryan AbilityLab) votes blind to choose a winner.
