Monday, August 17, 2015 - HFM Announces Daisy Award Winner

Sakinah Braun, RN, Women's & Children's Center, was honored with The Daisy Award for Extraordinary Nurses at Holy Family Memorial. She is the 15th HFM employee to receive the award. The award is part of the national DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the superhuman efforts nurses perform every day.

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation is based in Glen Ellen, CA, and was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Patrick died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP), a little known but not uncommon 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 their families.
