Coastal Carolina Hospital nurse Jeff Lewis receives a boutonniere from one of his patients, Gabrielle Padgett, 11, after Lewis was presented with the DAISY Award for Extraordinary Nursing Care during a ceremony Tuesday at the hospital in Hardeeville. The award is part of the DAISY Foundation's program to recognize superior efforts of nurses. The nonprofit foundation is based in Glen Ellen, Calif., and was established in memory of J. Patrick Barnes by his relatives. Barnes died in 1999 at age 33 from complications caused by an auto-immune disease. The care Barnes and his family received from nurses inspired the award.
