NaTasha Cameron has been named the 2019 first quarter DAISY Award Honoree at Clark Regional Medical Center.
The DAISY (Diseases, Attacking the, Immune, SYstem) Award Foundation was founded 14 years ago by the family of J. Patrick Barnes.
Barnes died at the age of 33 from complications of ITP. His family was completely awestruck by the care and compassion Barnes and they were shown during his eight-week illness they wanted to say “thank you” to nurses.

Barnes’ wife, Tena, developed the DAISY acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System.
Cameron received three DAISY nominations from patients, commending her on the compassionate care and the pride she takes in her work.
Cameron has been with Clark Regional Medical Center since March 2018 and currently works on Center for Women & Babies Unit.
“NaTasha is a wonderful asset to CRMC and the nursing team,” said Barb Kinder, interim CEO/CCO of Clark Regional Medical Center, “Her compassionate care and attention to patients exemplifies the type of employees we are proud to have at the hospital.”
In addition to Cameron, there were 19 other nurses nominated. Every quarter, CRMC selects another Daisy Award honoree. Nominees are celebrated at the Daisy Award Winner reception at the hospital.
