What is The BEE Award?
BEE stands for Being Exceptional Everyday: The award
celebrates and honors the exceptional skills and daily compassion given by our
non-nursing staff. Acknowledging the strength behind teamwork, the BEE Award
was conceived by the DAISY Foundation—because a DAISY can't survive without a
BEE and a BEE can't survive without a DAISY.
How are BEE Award Recipients Honored?
Each BEE Award honoree will be recognized at a public
ceremony in their unit and will receive: a hand-carved stone sculpture entitled
Circle of Friends, a BEE Award pin and commemorative certificate.
About The DAISY Foundation
The DAISY Foundation was established in 1999 by the family
of J. Patrick Barnes, who died of complications of the auto-immune disease,
Idiopathic Thrombocytopenia Purpura (ITP), at the age of 33. During Pat’s
eight- week hospitalization, his family was awestruck by the care and
compassion his nurses provided—not only to Pat, but to everyone in his family.
To honor Patrick’s memory and the extraordinary nursing care he received, his
family created The DAISY Foundation, which focuses on nominating and awarding
nurses that provide spectacular care.
