Smoking. Baptist Health La Grange recognizes the health risks associated with active and passive smoke and has a responsibility to its patients, visitors, medical staff and employees to provide a healthy environment. Therefore, smoking by physicians, visitors and employees is not permitted on our campus.
Telephones. Family members and friends may call the hospital operator at (502) 222-5388 to get the direct telephone number to a patient's room. Calls to patient rooms are not accepted between 9 p.m. and 8 a.m. to make sure our patients get adequate rest. All patients may make outgoing calls at any hour.
Visiting hours. Having visitors can help the patient's recovery process. However, rest is also an important part of the patient's convalescence. General visiting hours for relatives and friends are 8:30 a.m.-9 p.m. daily. Any visitors spending the night should register for a visitor's pass in the registration area.
Special visiting policies have been established:
