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.

Center for Comprehensive Venous Health

Introducing the Center for Comprehensive Venous Health at Christiana Care Health System

More than 80 million Americans suffer from venous disease. If you have symptoms or pain from venous disease, the Center for Comprehensive Venous Health at Christiana Care is here to help.

The Center for Comprehensive Venous Health provides coordinated care with exposure to multiple venous specialists in one convenient location. Until now, a comprehensive center like this was not available anywhere in Delaware or the surrounding tri-state area.

Patients with venous disease visit Christiana Care because of our nationally renowned physicians who are pioneering and performing a range of venous procedures, from deep to superficial venous disease treatments, including deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism and vena cava filter management.

The Center for Comprehensive Venous Health isn’t just an ordinary vein center. Our nationally renowned physicians are able to perform a variety of venous procedures as we offer a wide range of treatments for all venous diseases, including, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, venous malformations and IVC filter evaluation to many other, less severe vein conditions such as insufficiency and varicose veins.

At Christiana Care, we believe in being partners in our patients’ health. We are here to serve you with the highest quality healthcare. With our new Center for Comprehensive Venous Health, we are taking our commitment one step further and providing you in a new and dedicated way.
