Visiting the Hospital

Security and Visitors

The safety of your child is our top priority. The children’s hospital can only be accessed by visitors using Elevator D. Our security team is happy to provide you with an escort to or from your car. For assistance, please call Security Dispatch at (225) 765-8825.

As a parent or legal guardian, you will be given an armband with your child’s name on it. You should wear the armband at all times. If you need to leave for any reason, please notify the nursing team if you would like to appoint a caregiver in your absence so they may also receive an armband.

All of our team members wear an identification badge for the safety of our patients, their families and other guests. This badge states their name and role within our organization.

Parents and caregivers are welcome to stay with their child 24/7. All other visitors must visit during regular visiting hours of 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
