The DAISY Award at Children's Mercy

Children's Mercy joins over 1,000 other hospitals and medical facilities around the country in participating in the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The DAISY award was created to recognize the important daily contributions make in the lives of the patients and families.

The award is given every other month to an extraordinary nurse whose clinical skill and compassion make an enormous difference in the lives of the patients and staff of Children's Mercy.

The award recipients are nominated by their nurse administrators, peers, physicians, patients and families to receive:

  • A certificate proclaiming her or him an "Extraordinary Nurse"

  • A DAISY Award pin

  • A unique, hand-carved Shona stone sculpture, entitled "A Healer's Touch"

The recipient's unit receives a congratulatory banner to hang as a reminder that it takes a team to provide great patient care.
