Dallas, TX (PRWEB) July 07, 2016 -- Reinforcing its commitment to elevating the importance of experience across all care settings, The Beryl Institute joins The DAISY Foundation’s Supportive Associations. This collaboration provides the opportunity to share messages on the value of enhancing patient care by celebrating compassionate and extraordinary nurses through meaningful recognition.
“We are excited that The Beryl Institute is now a DAISY Supportive Association. Patient stories of extraordinary nursing written as DAISY Award nominations reflect the positive patient experience beautifully,” said Bonnie Barnes, FAAN, Co-Founder and President of The DAISY Foundation. “With the Institute’s reach, we look forward to expanding meaningful recognition of nurses as a tool for enhancing the patient experience.”
Direct care nurses are often the primary face of the patient experience in healthcare facilities. Patients and families who experience outstanding nursing compassion and skill may share their stories by nominating their nurses for The DAISY Award™ for Extraordinary Nurses in nearly 2,300 healthcare facilities. By celebrating nursing compassion and skill, The DAISY Award showcases role-models for all staff and enhances a patient and family-centered culture that contributes to a positive patient experience.
“As a community of practice, our intention is to share the great work happening within the industry and celebrate healthcare staff impacting patient experience every day,” said Stacy Palmer, Vice President, Strategy and Member Experience of The Beryl Institute. “The DAISY Foundation makes a significant contribution to the field of patient experience by acknowledging and elevating the role of compassionate nurses and their influence on the lives of patients and family members. “

About The DAISY Foundation:
The DAISY Foundation was created in 1999 by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of an auto-immune disease (hence the name, an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.) Patrick received extraordinary care from his nurses, and his family felt compelled to express their profound gratitude for the compassion and skill nurses bring to patients and families every day. The DAISY Award™ for Extraordinary Nurses celebrates nurses in over 2,200 healthcare facilities around the world.
