Question Title

The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of the autoimmune disease idiopathic throbocytopenia purpura (ITP) at the age of 33. (DAISY is an acronym for diseases attacking the immune system). During Pat's eight-week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and compassion his nurses provided to him and everyone in his family. When they created the foundation in Pat's memory, one of their goals was to recognize extraordinary nurses everywhere who make an enormous difference in the lives of people through the super-human work they do everyday.

UC Irvine Healthcare is proud to be a DAISY Award partner, recognizing one of our nurses with this honor every month.
