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.

Kidney Transplant Program

Waiting for Kidney Transplant

Once a patient is placed on the transplant waiting list, it is important that the kidney transplant program be notified of any changes in the patient’s condition such as:

  • Surgeries and procedures.
  • Active infections.
  • New medical diagnoses.
  • Hospitalizations.
  • Addition of anticoagulant medications (blood thinners).

It is also important for the transplant program to receive any updated testing results that have been performed on the patient, such as:

  • Cardiology testings.
  • New imaging studies (i.e. CT scans, etc.).

It is very important that patients waiting for transplant contact our office with any changes in their address, phone number or insurance information.

Our program has a designated waitlist coordinator who contacts each patient monthly to check-in proactively to ask of any such changes.

Please call 302-623-3866 if you wish to provide an update to us.
