Visitor Restrictions

The Louisiana Department of Health has asked all healthcare facilities to restrict visitor access as well as perform a safety screening including a temperature check on all visitors, in order to ensure public health and prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Until further notice, visitor restrictions will remain in conjunction with the guidelines presented by the Louisiana Department of Health, which shall include that all permitted visitors will wear a mask while in the facility.

Effective Wednesday, June 17, 2020, the following visitor restrictions are in place:

  • All visitors will be symptom and temperature screened at manned entrances and required to wear a mask covering their mouth and nose at all times while in the building.
  • One visitor at a time is allowed for each non-COVID patient (with 2 visitors maximum per day). Exceptions to this policy are in the Family Birthing Center which allows 2 visitors per day, as well as a Doula.
  • One overnight visitor is only permitted on the Family Birthing Center, Q7 Joint replacement unit, and on Rehab units as approved by Rehab leadership, and if deemed essential to the patient’s care.

We have also opened our Foucher street entrance to employees, patients, and visitors Monday through Friday from 7 am to 7 pm. Entrance screenings will take place at the Foucher Street entrance for all individuals entering the hospital.
