Jodi Patten receives CMH DAISY Award

Jodi Patten, RN, received the December 2023 CMH DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nurses. She is a registered nurse at Dallas County Family Medical Center and Walk-In Clinic.

She was presented with the award in January 2024. Patten’s nomination for the DAISY Award came from a co-worker.

“Jodi is an amazing nurse who genuinely cares about her patients. I was blessed to be able to witness one of her many acts of selfless service,” the nomination states. “We had a 38-week pregnant patient who was struggling financially. Jodi went and got this patient some diapers and wipes for her 1-year-old child as they were very low and no funds to obtain more. On top of that, Jodi helped her with purchasing her medications. This is just one example of how Jodi goes above and beyond for her patients. Jodi is an exceptional nurse, leader and an example of who we should strive to be.”

About the DAISY Award

DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The DAISY Foundation established the award in memory of J. Patrick Barnes, who died at 33 of an auto-immune disease. The international award thanks nurses everywhere.

CMH started the DAISY Award program in January 2019. A CMH or Citizens Memorial Health Care Foundation nurse receives the award each month.
