All visitors at outpatient locations must be masked in alignment with the masking guidelines on our visitation policy page here. Patients at ChristianaCare’s outpatient services are advised to come to their appointments alone unless a support person is absolutely needed.

Outpatient practices are not requiring vaccination or a negative COVID test for visitors at this time.

All hospital visitors required to be vaccinated or have a negative COVID-19 test.

  • Inpatients in our Christiana, Wilmington and Union hospitals may have one visitor daily between 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. The visitor must be 16 or older.
  • Patients having outpatient surgery may have one support person accompany them. Support persons must be 16 or older.
  • All visitors and surgical support people must show proof of vaccination OR a negative COVID-19 test within the prior 72 hours.

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. Plus, we document progress with digital imagery, carefully monitor changes in your healing process and adjust treatment as necessary. Count on us to come to you and provide:

  • Instructions on how to care for your or your loved one’s wounds.
  • Wound treatments that manage pain, prevent infection and promote healing.
  • Follow-up with your physician to assess progress.
