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.

Christiana Care Neurosciences

Epilepsy Center

If you or a loved one has a seizure disorder, you can find exceptional care right here in Delaware. The ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center treats adults with seizure disorders, including complex epilepsy.

The Epilepsy Center:

  • Earned Level 3 designation from the National Association of Epilepsy Centers — a first for a center of its kind in Delaware. This accreditation is awarded to epilepsy centers that have the professional expertise and facilities to provide medical evaluation and treatment to patients with complex epilepsy in inpatient and outpatient settings.
  • Opened the state’s first adult Epilepsy Monitoring Unit, where our clinical team monitors patients with uncontrolled seizure disorders 24/7 to determine their source. With this information, they can develop treatment plans to better control seizures.
  • Offers electroencephalography (EEG), accredited by the Lab Accreditation Board of ABRET, to monitor brain activity.

The ChristianaCare Epilepsy Center uses a patient-focused approach to diagnose epilepsy and provide ongoing care. Outpatient services for routine care are within the outpatient neurology offices located in the HealthCare Center at Christiana, across the street from Christiana Hospital.
