Visitation Policies - The Spine Hospital Of Louisiana

Visitation Hours & Guidelines

COVID – 19 Visitation Policy – Updated 8/6/21

The Spine Hospital of Louisiana continues its commitment to the safety of our patients, staff and visitors.  As a result, The Spine Hospital has adopted additional procedures and safeguards for our surgery patients. 

Before surgery: 

    • Before your scheduled surgery, a clinical team member will call to screen the patient for symptoms of COVID-19.
    • Patients will receive guidance on how to limit their exposure to infection in the days before surgery.
    • For all surgeries – Inpatient and Outpatientthe Patient must receive a Covid Test within 72 hours prior to your arrival at The Spine Hospital.  After your test, we strongly encourage you to avoid any unnecessary exposures after the test, by staying home and following prevention guidelines between the time of your test and your surgery.
    • Why is testing necessary if I do not have symptoms? Covid 19 testing protects patients as well as staff and physicians.  Patients who have the virus, even with no symptoms, may spread to others.  You are also at a higher risk for severe complications after surgery.
    • What if I test positive for Covid 19? Please contact The Spine Hospital at (225) 906-4797 immediately, so we can reschedule your procedure.  We will inform your surgeon.  Please quarantine at home and contact your primary care provider about your positive Covid test for further instructions.
    • VISITORS: Beginning on Monday August 9th, 2021, the one visitor who will be staying with the surgery patient after surgery will be required to bring a Negative Covid test with them in order to stay in the hospital overnight.  The Covid swab should be done 72 hours prior to admission to the hospital.
