It was an incredible and unexpected honor to receive the DAISY Award. The patient who nominated me was very generous. I really feel he received the same standard of care from me as he would have from any of the wonderful nurses that I work with. It still felt staggering to receive such recognition for my care. The sculpture was truly beautiful and everyone loved the cinnamon rolls. Thank you so much to The DAISY Foundation and to the family of J. Patrick Barnes.
