A special way for you to say ‘thank you’
Leicester’s Hospitals is proud to be one of the first University teaching hospitals to launch the DAISY Award – an international recognition programme that honours and celebrates the skilful, compassionate care nurses and midwives provide each day.

Sample nomination story:
“Our 88-year-old mother was a patient for 2 weeks. Mom was on a roller coaster, we never knew what to expect. Everything was new and frightening to us as we watched her struggle to live. Through it all, Tami was there, working tirelessly, diligently, helping Mom and us understand issues and ramifications. She patiently explained things to us, sometimes more than once, until we got it. Of utmost importance to her was Mom’s comfort. Tami was also concerned about each of us as we went through our own emotional and exhausting roller coaster rides. We looked forward each day to seeing Tami. She obviously cared deeply for Mom. Tami became like family. I wanted to hug her hello and goodbye. Everyday her knowledge and skills were evident. Such as, for 1 tiny example, the day 02 saturation was dropping, chest tubes were in-Tami analyzed the best position to put mom into with those tubes in order to maximize 02 saturation. It worked. Tami’s tireless, devoted, and skilled passion for our mother’s well being made a huge impression on us. She stood out as a nurse willing and able to go beyond the normal call of duty.”
