There's No Place like home for myers clinic's new nurse manager
The Myers Clinic is thrilled to have Lorelle Kisamore join the team as the clinic’s newly hired nurse manager. Lorelle has almost 40 years of nursing experience working in various positions and roles in the area and is sure to be an asset to the nursing department. We sat down with Lorelle and discussed her background as a nurse, how she hopes to grow in her new position as the nurse manager.
Q: Did you grow up in Barbour County?
A: Yes, I am a local girl. Having grown up in Barbour County, it’s exciting to be able to take care of my neighbors, friends and the community.
Q: What qualifies you for this position?
A: I have 38 years of experience as a nurse and have worked in various roles. Most recently, I was the Director of Nursing for the West Virginia Veterans Nursing Home in Clarksburg for 7 years. In 1981, I graduated from Davis and Elkins College with an Associate of Science Degree in Nursing.
Q: With so many years of experience, what is your favorite thing about being a nurse?
A: I like that nursing doesn’t confine you to one particular area. You can be a nurse in surgery, ICU or an outpatient clinic and then switch to another area if you want to try something else.
Q: What will be your duties as the Myers Clinic’s nurse manager?
A: I will schedule staff, ensure that the office runs smoothly and adapt and move staff around to cover when needed. I will assist the staff to provide care for patients when the need arises. I’ll also oversee the ordering supplies, medications and equipment.
Q: What do you hope to bring to the Myers Clinic?
A: I hope to bring stability to the clinic because when there’s a change in an area, there’s fear. But, I will treat everyone equally and I will help out whenever and wherever help is needed.
Q: How do you like to spend your spare time?
A: My family and I like to camp at Holly River or Canaan. I enjoy reading while my husband trout fishes at various streams in the area. I also am a volunteer with the Barbour County Fair Board where I serve as secretary.
