Hospital info:

Dr. Frank Woggon from University of Louisville Hospitals has informed us that they are limiting visitors to hospital patients to only two immediate family members. Clergy will not be permitted to do hospital visits except in the emergency room and in end-of-life situations. If you are concerned about parishioners in the hospital, you can call the chaplaincy office and they will send a staff chaplain to check on your parishioner. Knowing the state of our healthcare system now, I would say that every hospital will be taking a similar measures as UofL. You will want to provide pastoral care with your parishioners in non-life-threatening situations through the phone and also let them know that staff chaplaincy is available for them at any hospital in the Louisville Metro area.
