The LA Department of Health issued “Healthcare Facility Notice/Order Number 2020-COVID 19- All-007”. In part, it states that all healthcare providers postpone all in-person healthcare services that can safely be postponed for 30 days. You are to use your best clinical judgment to make this determination. You shall consider the entire clinical picture when determining if the service can be safely postponed, including the consequences of postponement to the patient, and the consequences to the health-care system. Providers acting in good faith will be not found to be in violation of this directive.
Pursuant to LA R.S. 2816.A.8, all contagious infectious disease protocols should be followed. Guidelines can be found at CDC.gov/coronavirus/2019-NCOV/infec.HTML
In addition, in compliance with Governor Edwards’ statewide “stay at home” order, the LA Board office will be closed to the public, vendors and licensees. Phone lines are being maintained during office hours.
