McLaren Greater Lansing nurse DeLise Robinson was honored with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation’s program to recognize the exceptional care nurses provide every day.

DeLise was nominated by a patient for her outstanding and compassionate care. The patient said while DeLise cared for her, she felt like more than a patient. She felt like family.

“DeLise puts her job aside and helps you as if she was family and not getting paid to. When it comes to DeLise, it’s not about the next paycheck, she truly loves her job. If you need to talk or cry she is right there. DeLise is always on time with your meds. She will bring you treats or something to eat when you ask. She is just a genuine great human being with a gold heart. She is truly an amazing person and I am glad she came into my life. I will call her more than my nurse, but a friend as well. She will bend over backwards for her patients. Thank you from the bottom of my heart DeLise. You are an amazing woman and you will always be in my heart. I am so grateful and blessed you came into my life when I was at my worse. She made my stay worth it, making me healthy again."

About the DAISY Award

The not-for-profit DAISY Foundation based in Glen Ellen, California was established by family members in memory of J. Patrick Barnes. Barnes died at the age of 33 in late 1999 from complications of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura (ITP), a little-known but not uncommon autoimmune disease. The care Barnes 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 patients and their families.

“When Patrick was critically ill, our family experienced firsthand the remarkable skill and care nurses provide patients every day and night,” said Bonnie Barnes, president and co-founder of the DAISY Foundation. “Yet these unsung heroes are seldom recognized for the superhuman work they do. The kind of work the nurses at McLaren Greater Lansing are called on to do every day epitomizes the purpose of The DAISY Award.”
