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.

Bridging the Divides

Bridging the Divides (Bridges) is a care management program focused on helping patients with ischemic heart disease transition successfully from hospital care and improve their long-term health. ChristianaCare Health System will work closely with community doctors and specialists to support patients in the Bridges program for at least one year after they are discharged from the hospital.

A core component of the program is improving the technology infrastructure to make data from clinical sites more available to the providers caring for each patient. The new system will incorporate data from many places that patients receive care, including:

  • Inpatient and outpatient electronic medical records from primary care and specialty physicians
  • Statewide lab and hospital use information from the Delaware Health Information Network (DHIN)

This program is supported by a Health Care Innovation Award from the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Innovation.

The Bridges team will use this data to support evidence-based care that is coordinated among all of the patient’s clinical care providers. The goals of the program are to improve the delivery of evidence-based care tailored to each individual patient, resulting in better health, better health care and lower costs.

The project described was supported by Grant Number 1C1CMS331027 of the Department of Health and Human Services, Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
