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.

Brett E Herb, LCSW

Brett E. Herb, LCSW has been in clinical practice for the past 25 years as both a psychotherapist and as a clinical and administrative manager for various behavioral health programs. Mr. Herb received his Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Delaware in 1992. He graduated with his Master of Social Work degree from Widener University in 1994, and received his license in clinical social work in 1996.  For well over a decade, Mr. Herb has dedicated the bulk of his psychotherapy practice to working with adolescents and adults who suffer with Gender Dysphoria.

At ChristianaCare Health System, Mr. Herb works exclusively with the transgender and gender non-conforming population whose primary goal in therapy is to explore their gender identity, and in some cases, to take steps towards medical treatment to relieve the symptoms of gender dysphoria. Mr. Herb believes in the Standards of Care set forth by the World Professional Association of Transgender Health (WPATH). He believes that the gender therapist’s and medical provider(s) role is to support the client in their gender identification and not to be gatekeepers for medically necessary treatment.  Mr. Herb has presented many workshops on gender dysphoria and on the clinical treatment of transgender identifying individuals to medical providers, therapists, school counselors, and to community and professional organizations, both locally and nationally. He is a member of WPATH, the National Association of Social Workers, and the Delaware Psychological Association. Mr. Herb is a candidate for the newly created WPATH gender therapist certification.
