Increased visitor restrictions and restricted access

For the protection and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community, we have restricted visitation and access to Logansport Memorial Hospital, effective immediately until further notice:

  • NO VISITORS are permitted on the LMH campus.
  • Exceptions will be considered in the following areas where a patient may receive one HEALTHY visitor for a limited time period, based on the care situation:
    • Labor and delivery
    • ER
    • Surgical patients or patients receiving sedation
    • Patients with dementia, or debilitating mental health condition
    • End-of-life situations
  • LMH patients and approved visitors may only enter through the ER Entrance at this time.
  • Patients and visitors will be screened by LMH staff before being allowed into the facility. The screening will ask about any respiratory symptoms you may be experiencing, and your temperature will be checked.
  • For pediatric patients under the age of 18, the patient must be accompanied by one HEALTHY adult at all times.
  • No visitors under the age of 18 (including the siblings and children of OB patients) are allowed at this time.
  • Use of LMH’s café and Starbucks coffee shop is closed to the public and limited to staff and patients at this time.

Changes to patient services

To prepare for a possible influx of patients and to limit potential exposure to patients and staff, LMH has canceled, restricted, or postponed the following services until further notice:

  • Elective and non-emergent surgeries and procedures
  • Preventative screenings, including colonoscopy screenings and mammography screenings
  • Sleep lab services
  • Cardiac and pulmonary rehab services
  • Volunteer services
  • Medicare annual wellness visits for patients ages 65+
  • Additional wellness (non-acute) visits are encouraged to be postponed as well unless the provider and patient determine otherwise.

Our providers and surgeons will consult and determine on a case-by-case basis whether appointments, surgeries, and procedures should take place or be postponed for patients. This has not changed from our initial restriction on elective and non-emergent surgeries.

We will continue to schedule and treat patients to minimize any potential negative impacts on the patient’s overall health. It is up to the physician to decide if canceling or postponing a surgery or appointment will have a negative impact on the patient’s overall health.

Patients impacted by cancellations or rescheduling of appointments will be contacted by LMH staff directly.
