Moore-Few Care Center Announces New Administrator

Moore-Few Care Center Announces New Administrator

Moore-Few Care Center (MFCC) is pleased to announce the promotion of Carmen Pike, RN from Director of Nursing (DON) to Administrator. Her promotion took place in October as the previous administrator Angela Barrett moved on to the position of Controller at Nevada Regional Medical Center.

Pike brings more than 28 years of experience as a career-long employee of MFCC. She has worked her way up through the ranks over the years, with her first job at MFCC as a housekeeper. When asked what she likes about her job, she says she sees long-term care residents as the often-forgotten people of society. “I enjoy taking care of them, making them smile and feel important,” says Pike.

A self-proclaimed overachiever, Pike enjoys learning and advanced her career at MFCC by continuing her education. A Nevada, Mo native, her nursing career path began in the health occupations class at Nevada High School, by which she earned her certification as a nurse aid. She went on to earn her practical nursing license through Crowder College. Later, she became a registered nurse and most recently, in 2020, she passed rigorous state and federal exams to earn her administrator’s license.

“As Administrator, I look forward to encouraging a family-oriented team at Moore-Few,” says Pike. “I think that approach will help us provide the best home for residents, where we take care of them, as well as each other. I want our Moore-Few family to look forward to coming to work and to see that hard work pays off.”

Pike lives on a farm in Nevada with her husband of 32 years. They have two sons and two grandchildren. When asked about how she spends her spare time she says, “I LOVE fishing, especially for catfish, and caring for our cows and chickens.”


BCHM When will Covid-19 vaccine be available to the public

When will the CoVID-19 vaccine be available to the general public?Currently, Missouri is in Phase 1A of CoVID-19 vaccine distribution (see the Missouri Hospital Association’s graphic below).

The state of Missouri will decide when the vaccine will become publicly available. At this time, we do not know when that date will be, but the timeline for the general population to get vaccinated is targeted for late spring and summer.

The roll-out for the public will be given out through health departments or an individual’s private physician. The vaccine is also expected to be available at local pharmacies.

When CoVID-19 vaccines become publicly available, our clinics will be ready to administer them, and we will share that news through multiple media formats.Learn more about CoVID-19 vaccines from the Missouri Hospital Association: https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/https://covidvaccine.mo.gov/ Additional resources for vaccine information is available on the Bates County Memorial Hospital website: http://www.bcmhospital.com/covid-19-vaccination-faqs/

Adrian Optimist Monday Night Bingo Update

The Adrian Optimist Club Boards have voted to extend the suspension of Monday Night Bingo operations until the end of January.

With COVID-19 cases up locally the last few weeks, it was voted to give it at least a couple weeks for the cases to level off before resuming bingo.

When they do resume regular Monday Night Bingo, they will be requiring masks to be worn unless eating or drinking. This will be universal for all players and workers.

The Adrian Optimist would like to thank their players in advance for their understanding with this decision and look forward to getting back bingo!
