All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

Patient & Visitor Guide

Personal Belongings

We strongly recommend the following to keep your personal belongings safe during your hospital stay.

Valuable items

Leave valuable items at home. This includes things like jewelry, watches, money and credit cards.

If you have valuable items with you, you may request to place them in a safe at the hospital. The admitting staff or your nurse will place the items in the safe and give you a receipt. You may claim your valuables when you are discharged.

Never leave valuable items in your room while you are away for testing or surgery.

Eyeglasses, hearing aids and dentures

Keep these important belongings in their proper containers in your bedside drawer. In the intensive care unit, speak with your nurse about the best place to store your belongings.

Do not leave eyeglasses, hearing aids or dentures on top of your bed, under your pillow or on your bedside table where they can easily fall or get lost in your bed sheets.

Clothing

If you bring clothes from home, keep them in the closet in your room, in your bedside table drawer or in your suitcase.

 

ChristianaCare is not responsible for the loss of any valuables that are not placed in our safe or for loss of personal property.
