Thumbay Hospital Ajman is excited to announce the launch of the Daisy Awards. The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses is an international program that rewards and celebrates the extraordinary clinical skills and compassionate care provided by nurses to patients and families every day. We are both thrilled and proud to now be the First Daisy Award Partners in Ajman District, recognizing our nurses with this special honor quarterly.

DAISY awards allow patients, their families as well as colleagues to nominate a nurse or midwife who has made a real difference through outstanding clinical care. DAISY Honorees are recognized as outstanding role models in nursing for the impact they leave on patients and their families.

What is the DAISY Award?

The DAISY award was created in November 1999 in the USA by the family of J Patrick Barnes following his loss at the age of 33 from complications of the auto-immune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). The DAISY Foundation commemorates the appreciation Patrick’s family had for the compassionate and skillful nursing care shown to him and his family. Following Patrick’s death, they felt compelled to say Thank You to the nurses everywhere by establishing an ongoing recognition program.

How does it work?

Nurses are nominated by patients, families, doctors, and colleagues. Every Quarter we will be celebrating one THUMBAY DAISY recipient at a surprise ceremony where excellence, pride, and cinnamons are shared with the whole team. The Honoree will also receive a DAISY award pin, certificate and a unique hand-carved sculpture called the “Healer’s Touch” created by Zimbabwe artists which demonstrates the special relationship between nurses and patients.
