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.

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:
