Flu season visitor restriction – age 16 or older (Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu) – Mayores de 16 años.)

Flu Season Visitor Restriction

Visitors temporarily restricted to age 16 or older

As a safety first organization, ChristianaCare is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Tuesday, Jan. 21. This temporary restriction protects patients, their loved ones and health care workers during this time of extremely high number of influenza cases and other respiratory illnesses circulating in our community.

The new restrictions limit visitors to patients in Christiana and Wilmington hospitals to persons age 16 or older. Children and teens younger than 16 years are most likely to get the flu and remain contagious longer than adults. This restriction does not apply to outpatient and ambulatory services.

Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

Restricción de visitantes durante la Temporada de Influenza (Flu)

Temporalmente solo se permiten los visitantes mayores de 16 años.

Como una organización que promueve la seguridad ante todo, ChristianaCare está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 21 de enero. Esta restricción temporal protege a los pacientes, a sus seres queridos y al personal de cuidados de salud durante esta época con un número extremadamente alto de casos de influenza y de otras enfermedades respiratorias que circulan en nuestra comunidad.

Las nuevas restricciones, en los hospitales Christiana y Wilmington, sólo permiten visitas a pacientes de personas mayores de 16 años. Los niños y adolescentes menores de 16 años son más propensos a contraer el flu y son contagiosos por más tiempo que los adultos. Esta restricción no aplica a las áreas de servicios ambulatorios.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

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.
