ChristianaCare

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.

Diabetes Care

Insulin Pump Therapy

ChristianaCare offers one-on-one support to teach you how to properly use an insulin pump and continuous glucose monitor and how to integrate theses technologies into your lifestyle.

Insulin Pumps

Your doctor may prescribe an insulin pump to help you achieve good blood-sugar control. By using the small, lightweight device, you can avoid extreme changes in blood-sugar levels, with more flexibility in food choices and meal planning.

Insulin pumps are small and lightweight—about the size of a cell phone. They deliver insulin through a tiny tube inserted under the skin in the abdomen.

Additional information about insulin pumps is available at the manufacturer Web sites:

Continuous Glucose Monitors

Continuous glucose monitors (CGMs) constantly track a person’s glucose levels. While fingerstick tests only measure glucose levels at a point in time, continuous glucose monitors provide a 24-hour picture of glucose levels. CGMs are often used together with insulin pumps to provide a glucose monitoring and insulin delivery system.

Additional information about continuous glucose monitors is available at the manufacturer Web sites:
