Our media partners at The Advocate/Times Picayune have published a story that offers a glimpse of what health providers are dealing with during the pandemic.

The Times-Picayune | The Advocate asked several large health care providers in New Orleans and Baton Rouge for permission to watch firsthand their efforts to deal with the coronavirus crisis. Our Lady of the Lake was the first to agree to the proposal. Hospital officials allowed a reporter and photographer to spend several hours inside of the hospital Thursday. They witnessed these accounts in-person, and also interviewed staff throughout the day. The newspaper agreed not to publish any identifying information about patients, which included slight alterations to photos.
