Updated visitor policy

Effective: 7/14/2020 until further notice

To reduce the spread of respiratory illnesses, patients in inpatient or intensive care units are allowed only one visitor at a time. Other visitors are asked to remain home or wait off hospital property, as we must maintain social distancing guidelines.

The visiting hours at Tulane Lakeside Hospital are 8 a.m.-6 p.m., seven days a week. No visitors are allowed inside the hospital outside of these times. Exceptions are made for companions of laboring mothers.

One visitor may also accompany a patient to outpatient areas (outpatient surgery, clinic, tests and other procedures.) Outpatient visitors arriving outside of visiting hours are permitted.

All visitors will be screened upon entry and must properly wear the provided Level 1 mask at all times. Any visitors who screen positive will be not be allowed in our facilities. Visitors will also be expected to maintain social distancing of at least six feet from others and wash hands or use hand sanitizer when entering or exiting patient rooms.

No visitors are allowed for patients in areas treating COVID-19 patients or in inpatient rehabilitation.

We understand that this policy may be difficult for patients and visitors. However, we must make these visitor guidelines out of an abundance of caution to keep our patients and caregivers as safe as possible.

Thank you for your understanding and help to keep everyone safe.
