Keeping Our Campus Safe

The NeuroMedical Center is committed to providing the highest level of neurological care to our patients and their families. We are closely monitoring the current coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) virus on a daily basis. We want to help our community further understand that we have a plan in place and are confident in our ability to continue providing safe and effective care during this challenging time.  We want you to know that we are continually enhancing our protocols to ensure the safety of our patients, our teams, and the community.

  • The NeuroMedical Center Clinic and The NeuroMedical Center Rehabilitation Hospital are restricting all visitors until further notice. Only in extenuating circumstances will a patient be allowed one guest for support. 
  • The Spine Hospital of Louisiana is limiting visitors to one per patient, per day. Visitors are no longer permitted in the pre-op areas for pain or surgery, and will only be allowed access to the first floor lobby waiting room and Inpatient areas if wearing a wristband given to them by our screening teams.  
  • We are screening all patients, staff, and visitors at designated entry points to reduce the risk of spreading illness.  The brief screening process includes a temperature check and a series of questions including:
    •  Have you been around anyone with Flu like symptoms?
    •  Have you recently experiences cough, fever, body aches or shortness of breath?
    •  Have you had contact with anyone with confirmed COVID-19 in the last 14 days?
    • Have you traveled to another state or internationally in the last 14 days?
  • Visitors who are sick or do not meet screening criteria will not be allowed to enter the facility.
  • Patients from nursing homes/assisted living/long term care centers will not be seen at this time.  The NeuroMedical Center Clinic will provide assistance to patients in rescheduling their appointments.
  • We are no longer able to accept deliveries of flowers, balloons, gift baskets, and the like.

The current environment is changing daily which is why our physicians, staff, and administrative team are adapting to make sure you can access the care you need.  Our entire team has received extensive training on donning personal protection equipment. Staff in key areas are equipped with PPE gowns, masks, hand sanitizers, and other supplies to help prevent the spread and potential exposure to illness.  Additionally, The NeuroMedical Center Clinic now offers Telemedicine Video Visits to new and established patients, allowing you to receive face-to-face consultation and care from  your physician without having to leave home.

If you are exhibiting any signs and symptoms of illness, contact your primary care center as soon as possible and contact us to reschedule your appointment (225) 768-2050.  

Coronavirus Prevention

There is currently no vaccine to prevent coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). The best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to this virus.  Many people are asking what they can do personally to protect themselves. First of all, it is important to listen to your local officials and your primary care physician.  Secondly, we should all follow basic infection prevention guidelines:

Clean your hands often

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds especially after you have been in a public place, or after blowing your nose, coughing, or sneezing.
  • If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol. Cover all surfaces of your hands and rub them together until they feel dry.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth with unwashed hands.
 

Avoid close contact with people who are sick

Stay home if you’re sick

  • Stay home if you are sick, except to get medical care.

Cover coughs and sneezes

  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze or use the inside of your elbow.
  • Throw used tissues in the trash.
  • Immediately wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water are not readily available, clean your hands with a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.

Clean and Disinfect

  • Clean AND disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily.  This includes tables, doorknobs, light switches, countertops, handles, desks, phones, keyboards, toilets, faucets, and sinks.
  • If surfaces are dirty, clean them: Use detergent or soap and water prior to disinfection.
 

If you have traveled abroad in the last 14 days, please inform your healthcare provider.
