Lafayette, LA – COVID-19 positive cases and related hospitalizations are on the rise throughout Acadiana. To protect our patients, guests and team members, Our Lady of Lourdes is restricting the visitor policy beginning Friday, Nov. 20 effective at 5am. Each
in patient may have one visitor at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center and Our Lady of Lourdes Heart Hospital for the
duration of their stay. No overnight visitation on these campuses. Visiting hours remain 7am–7pm. One visitor can accompany a
patient in our four Emergency Department locations. For more information on these updated visitor guidelines and COVID-19,
visit www.lourdesrmc.com/coronavirus/for-hospital-visitors Patients and visitors to all campuses– Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center, Heart Hospital, Women’s & Children’s Hospital and the ER in Scott– must enter through designated entry points to be screened before entering the facility. The screening process includes a temperature check and questions regarding symptoms,
such as cough or shortness of breath. Masking is required. “The support of family, friends and the community is important in the healing and recovery process,” said Gilbert Humbert, Chief Nursing Officer for Our Lady of Lourdes. “In these unprecedented times, social media, Skype, Zoom and other virtual options make it possible to continue providing that support in addition to helping limit the
spread of COVID-19 by reducing in-person interactions. “The power to reverse the increase in COVID-19 cases is in your hands,” he
added. “Wear a mask when you leave your home. Practice social distancing. Wash and sanitize your hands often. These small steps make a huge impact in the effort to reduce the impact this pandemic is having on our communities.”
