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.

Ear, Nose & Throat

ENT/Sinus Surgery Center

With industry-leading technology and highly-trained surgeons and nurses, ChristianaCare’s ENT/Sinus Surgery Center provides state-of-the-art care and treatment for even the most severe sinus problems.

Treating chronic or recurrent sinus problems often requires the special knowledge and training of an ENT (ear, nose and throat) doctor. Usually, a sinus infection can be treated with antibiotics to kill the bacteria. Oral and nasal decongestants or sprays can unclog stuffy noses. But sometimes surgery may be necessary to improve sinus drainage or to correct an anatomical defect that may be causing the problem.

The ENT/Sinus Surgery Center was designed for patients with acute sinus infections or structural problems that require surgical intervention. However, the doctors who participate in this center have the experience and expertise to provide the full range of appropriate treatments for sinus problems.

Superior capabilities for treating sinus and other ear, nose and throat problems

The ENT/Sinus Surgery Center is staffed by experienced surgeons committed to providing a positive experience for patients throughout their entire continuum of care. Our highly trained nurses and support staff possess special expertise in the treatment of patients with significant sinus disease and other ear, nose and throat problems.

Our advanced technology includes the computer-guided VTI InstaTrack System, which enables the surgeon to correlate your anatomy with high-resolution CAT scan images. This provides the surgeon with a three-dimensional “road map” of the operation area. The system provides an exact localization of disease, which minimizes risk, and makes your surgery more precise and less invasive. Your incision will be smaller, you will experience less pain during recovery, and your symptoms will be better controlled over the long-term.
