Visitor Restrictions and Limited Access

For the protection and safety of our patients, our staff, and our community, we have limited visitation and access to Logansport Memorial Hospital, effective immediately until further notice. Logansport Memorial Hospital (LMH) is allowing one healthy support person as an approved visitor for almost all departments across the hospital. All approved visitors must be age 18 or older.

Visiting hours are restricted during this slow, phased approach to the hours of 12 PM (Noon) – 8:00 pm.

Visitors are expected to enter and be screened through the LMH Main Entrance during these designated visiting hours. If visiting during the designated hours on the weekends, visitors should plan to enter the hospital through the ER Entrance. Approved visitors to the Med/Surg floor, ICU, COVID unit, and Family Birth Center should expect to wear a wristband that will help staff identify them as properly screened and cleared. When the patient and healthy support person enter the unit, staff will give the support person a wristband with the name of the department and the date of arrival on it. The support person will be instructed to leave the wristband on until the patient is discharged – so if a patient is staying longer than one day, the support person should leave the wristband on for multiple days and wear it each time they come back for visitation until the patient is going home.

Certain exceptions will be considered in the following areas, where a patient may have one healthy support person with them, based on the care situation:

  • In the Family Birth Center, up to four grandparents (that are approved by the patient) will now be allowed to visit. Only one will be allowed to visit at a time, unless they are from the same household.
  • On the Med/Surg and ICU floors, up to two healthy support persons can be approved per patient. Only one will be allowed to stay with the patient at a time.

LMH patients and approved visitors may enter through the following restricted entrances:

  • Emergency Department Entrance, 24/7
  • Main Lobby Entrance, Monday - Friday, 6:00 am - 5:30 pm 
  • Medical Office Building East, Monday - Friday, 7:30 am - 5:00 pm

Patients and visitors will be screened by LMH staff before being allowed into the facility. Hospital screening staff will provide a sticker to be worn at all times, identifying the patient and/or visitor who has passed the screening criteria.

  • For pediatric patients under the age of 18, the patient must be accompanied by one healthy support person at all times.
  • Patients with cognitive impairment, developmental delays, or who require physical assistance may be allowed to have one healthy support person with them.
  • Any approved visitor with a temperature greater than 100.0º or who is confirmed to be
    COVID-positive will be asked to leave.
  • For end-of-life situations, exceptions for approved visitors may also be made following guidelines from the Indiana State Department of Health about the number of visitors allowed.
  • Clergy members are now allowed to be an additional visitor for any patient between the hours of12 PM (Noon) – 8:00 pm, beyond the guidelines listed by Logansport Memorial Hospital. Clergy members will be required to follow the same guidelines of wearing a mask, maintaining social distancing, and following hand hygiene while in the facility. In circumstances where it’s necessary, they will also be required to wear additional PPE and will be assisted by LMH staff to do so.
  • The use of LMH’s café and Starbucks coffee shop is closed to the public and limited to staff and patients at this time.
