DAISY Foundation International Partnership Launched

The DAISY Foundation™ and Health Carousel, the provider of PassportUSA, announced their international advocacy partnership which will increase global support for the DAISY Foundation’s mission honoring nurses.

The DAISY Foundation is thrilled to welcome its first international advocate, Health Carousel, who will assist the foundation in expanding the global reach of DAISY recognition for nurses. To start, Health Carousel will be supporting the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union who will present the first 6 of 24 annual DAISY Awards to compassionate nurses in front of the country’s President on May 12, 2020. Expansion of the international advocacy partnership is underway allowing the DAISY program to honor nurses in additional countries, hospitals and schools of nursing worldwide.

Said Bonnie Barnes, FAAN, Co-founder and CEO of The DAISY Foundation, “We have been looking for the right partner to support DAISY’s global growth in under-developed countries whose leaders see the value of meaningful recognition for nurses but do not have the means for the program.  In Health Carousel, we have the right partner, doing this for the right reasons. With the addition of nurses in Uganda thanks to the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union, DAISY is now honoring nurses in 29 countries.”


Bill DeVille, CEO and Co-Founder of Health Carousel stated, “We are delighted to be able to help the country of Uganda honor their compassionate nurses through sponsorship of DAISY awards. It has never been so evident as during these uncertain times of COVID-19, that successful organizations such as Health Carousel have a social responsibility that heightens as they grow. Internally we like to say we do well by doing good. Sponsoring DAISY Foundation awards for the Uganda Nurses and Midwives Union is one example of this concept put into practice and aligns with our broader Light the Way initiative which supports global healthcare professionals in many ways,” concluded Mr. DeVille.

Earl Dalton, Chief Nursing Officer of Health Carousel was also on hand to comment. “We are extremely proud to expand our relationship with The DAISY Foundation and in supporting DAISY Awards for the compassionate Ugandan nurses honored today.” Dalton added that Uganda is the first of several International Advocacy programs being launched with The DAISY Foundation over the coming months.

We have been looking for the right partner to support DAISY’s global growth in under-developed countries whose leaders see the value of meaningful recognition for nurses but do not have the means for the program.  In Health Carousel, we have the right partner, doing this for the right reasons.
– Bonnie Barnes, FAAN, Co-founder and CEO of The DAISY Foundation

About The DAISY Foundation

The DAISY Foundation is a not-for-profit organization, established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, by members of his family.  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. (DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.)  The care Patrick and his family received from Nurses while he was ill inspired the creation of The DAISY Award® for Extraordinary Nurses, an evidenced-based means of providing Nurse recognition and thanking Nurses for making a profound difference in the lives of their patients and patient families.

In addition to the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses, the Foundation expresses gratitude to the nursing profession internationally in nearly 4,500 healthcare facilities and schools of nursing with recognition of direct care Nurses, Nurse-led Teams, Nurse Leaders, Nursing Faculty, Nursing Students, Lifetime Achievement in Nursing and through the J. Patrick Barnes Grants for Nursing Research and Evidence-Based Practice Projects and Medical Mission Grants. More information is available at http://DAISYfoundation.org.

As a matter of fact, Emmanuela received a score of 100% in annual satisfaction ratings from her nurse manager. In her performance reviews, the facility’s Nurse Manager commented:

“Emmanuela is a delight to interact with. She greets everyone with a big smile and a hello. She delivers compassionate, competent nursing care to her patients. She has been such an excellent addition to our team!”

Reflecting on Her Journey

“My opportunity to live and work in the USA positively impacted my whole family, especially my son. When we were still in the Philippines, he was diagnosed with developmental delay and speech delay. When we arrived in the US, we were able to find a good program for him with speech therapy and occupational therapy for free from government agencies. With a good support group around us and an excellent group of speech pathologists, occupational therapists, and case managers, his journey towards full potential is almost 100%! Isnt it amazing?

 

I want to thank my original PassportUSA International Employee Supervisor (IES), Jamie, for all of the help since day one. Thank you for all of the encouragement and patience, especially when I was starting out and had so many questions, and I appreciate your frequent positive feedback.

 

I would also like to thank Ashley. She has been my IES since October 2019 through the end of my contract. Thank you for the help and for being understanding, especially when it came to deadlines.

 

Lastly I’d like to extend a big thank you to Lisa, my nurse manager, for choosing my resume and for taking chances in me from the very start.”

What’s next for Emmanuela?

Emmanuela excitedly accepted a full-time employment offer from the facility. We know she will continue to exceed her employer’s and patients’ expectations.


 

“Believe you can and you will.” – Emmanuela

Thank you, Emmanuela! We wish you the best of luck.
