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, Christiana Care is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Friday, Jan. 18. 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. We began restricting visitors under the age of 16 years in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Women’s and Children’s areas on Jan. 18.

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, Christiana Care está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 18 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. Comenzamos la restricción de visitas a menores de 16 años en nuestra Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (NICU) y en las áreas para Mujeres y Niños desde el 18 de enero.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Cardiac Rehabilitation: What to Expect

Your first appointment with the cardiac rehabilitation staff will take about one hour. You should wear comfortable clothes, and be sure to bring your insurance card and a list of all medications that you are currently taking.

This initial assessment will evaluate:

  • Your medical history and your risk factors for heart disease.
  • Any special precautions you will need to take as you begin the exercise part of your rehabilitation program.
  • Your baseline data, including heart rate, blood pressure and oxygen levels. This information will make it easier to gauge your progress through your rehabilitiation.

Orientation

Your next few visits following the first appointment will be an orientation session introducing you to the concepts and benefits of cardiac rehabilitiation. You will begin your personalized, monitored exercise program. You will also begin to learn strategies for acheiving better heart health. These will include nutrition and stress management.

Your exercise program

Over a period of up to three months, you will participate in one-hour sessions where the cardiac rehabilitiation staff will help you to exercise in increasing intensity, based on your body’s recovery. Your personal exercise plan will include a variety of exercises targeted to increase your cardiovascular fitness. During each session, you will be monitored by our staff, and your progress will be evaluated.
