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.

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.

The importance of a gynecologic oncologist in your battle against cancer

Our gynecologic oncologists are specially trained to care for women with gynecologic cancers such as cervical cancer, endometrial or uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer. Because these cancers are complex, and treatment can involve multiple modalities, it is important to be sure that the doctor managing your care is experienced and highly trained specifically in treating gynecologic cancer.

Our gynecologic multidisciplinary team specializes in treating cancers of the ovary, endometrium, uterus, cervix, vagina and vulva. Decades of clinical experience show that combinations of surgery, chemotherapy and radiation are most effective in treating gynecologic cancers. However, this clinical experience has also brought to light our need to tailor your care both in terms of the disease itself and its overall effect on you.
