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.

Our Services

Dentistry

The Department of Oral Maxillofacial Surgery & Hospital Dentistry has offered dental treatment to the community for more than 60 years. The fees have been kept at a reduced level so that uninsured and underinsured patients have the opportunity to receive comprehensive care.

The treatment is performed by dental residents who have completed their undergraduate training and have chosen to spend an additional year as hospital residents before starting their practices. The clinic is supervised by many community dentists who volunteer their time, as well as faculty who work either full- or part-time.

Dental care for the uninsured and underinsured

  • Restorative dentistry, including fillings, crowns and bridges, dentures and partial dentures.
  • All phases of implants.
  • Endodontics, including root canal and gum therapies.
  • Children’s dentistry.

The dental clinic is at the Wilmington Hospital Health Center, but residents consult in the emergency rooms at both hospital campuses and at the Helen F. Graham Cancer Center. They also rotate to affiliated dental clinics at Nemours SeniorCare, Westside Family Healthcare, Henrietta Johnson Medical Center and the Dental Health Center at Delaware Technical & Community College.

In addition to treating patients in the dental clinic, residents rotate through the hospital’s anesthesia and emergency departments in order to become more highly trained to treat people who are medically compromised or handicapped.
