DAISY and BEE Award Honorees

The DAISY Award Logo

The DAISY Award was established by the DAISY Foundation in memory of J. Patrick Barnes who died at 33 of ITP, an auto-immune disease.  The care Patrick and his family received from nurses while he was ill inspired this unique means of thanking nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

Shawnee Health Service created the BEE award (Being Exceptional Every Day) as a way to recognize our Certified Medical Assistant staff.  While the DAISY program only allows us to recognize licensed nurses, Shawnee wanted a genuine way to distinguish and honor our CMA staff.  They are so important to our delivery-of-care model at Shawnee.

Shawnee Health Service has announced its DAISY and BEE Award honorees this year.

Congratulations to our amazing DAISY Award Honoree

It is our great honor to announce that Amanda Reynolds, APN received the 2022 DAISY Award.

The DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses recognizes nurses for their exceptional and compassionate care.

Here is one of the nomination submissions:

Amanda is so special. She has such a good bedside manner. She listens and asks questions. I had seen Amanda in August and I had been in an abusive relationship. She calmed me down and called the police. They picked him up and Amanda sent me to Women’s Center. I had 4 broken ribs due to the abuse and she took such excellent care of me.”

Thanks to all of our other amazing DAISY Nominees

Stacy Franklin, CMA received the BEE Award For Exceptional Nursing Support Team Members.

The BEE Award recognizes staff that support care of patients and family by honoring nursing assistants, medical assistants, and others.

Here is one of the nomination submissions as submitted by a patient:

“Stacy is the most amazing nurse and that aside, an even more amazing human being. She has always brought me comfort and joy even when I have been ready to give up on myself. She has even extended herself to make sure my children are able to have diapers. I have never known her in life or even heard of her before I came here to free myself from the chains of addiction placed upon me and my family. She deserves this award and to say a person like her has never received the award is almost a tragedy. I would like for her to at least be recognized by my nomination for her. It would be a nice thought that I was able to give back something to a woman who has given me and I am certain so many others the hope, will and happiness to get healthy and not give up on myself. Thank you. ”

Thanks to all of our other wonderful BEE Nominees
