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.

Skilled Nursing Care

If your loved one has recently undergone surgery, has been discharged from the hospital or is dealing with a disability, chronic condition, or terminal illness, ChristianaCare HomeHealth is here to help. Our dedicated nurses are skilled in medical and surgical nursing, diabetes care, cardiac care, wound care, post-hospital care and medication management. We work with you, your loved one and his or her doctors to create a complete care plan that will meet a wide range of medical needs.

In-home care

Our skilled nurses will come to your, or your family member’s, home to provide the medical care your loved one needs to stay as comfortable, independent and healthy as possible. From pain management to infusion therapy to patient education – we’ll help your loved one remain at home and out of the hospital.

Infusion therapy

For some conditions, medicine, nutrients, and other treatments must be given via intravenous (IV) injection. This type of treatment is also called infusion therapy. Our specially trained infusion therapy nurses provide comfort and healing, including:

  • IV site care.
  • Administration and instruction on IV therapy.
  • Drawing and reporting lab values.

Wound care

Wounds that are not treated properly can take longer to heal and cause other health problems. ChristianaCare HomeHealth certified wound care specialists will come to your home to be sure you or your loved one receives safe and effective treatment that manages pain and promotes healing.

Our wound care experts are experienced in managing a wide variety of skin care needs, from minor skin irritations and injuries to complicated, complex wounds.

  • Instructions on how to care for your or your loved one’s wounds.
  • Wound treatments that manage pain, prevent infection and promote healing.
