Kirby Bates is now a proud sponsor of The DAISY Foundation!

DAISY is an acronym for Diseases Attacking the Immune System. The Foundation was formed in November, 1999, by the family of J. Patrick Barnes who died at age 33 of complications of the autoimmune disease Idiopathic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (ITP). Pat’s death after 8 weeks in the hospital was a terrible surprise to his family. However, the nursing care they experienced during Pat’s hospitalization compelled them to express their gratitude to nurses everywhere for the clinical skill and especially compassionate care nurses provide every day.  To learn more about The DAISY Foundation please visit  Or click here for their brochure..
