All visitors are required to wear masks.

For COVID-19 safety, all visitors to ChristianaCare facilities and services are required to wear masks. This includes visitors who are vaccinated. Please read our visitor guidelines before arrival.

Masks required at outpatient locations; visitors and support persons limited

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. If a support person is needed, such as a parent, guardian or spokesperson, we highly encourage that the support person be vaccinated. 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.

Headaches and Migraines

If you suffer from chronic headaches or migraine headaches, you know how much they can intrude on your life. Migraines, in particular, can rob you of all pleasure when they strike. They can last as long as 72 hours, and in addition to a throbbing head, you may experience nausea and vomiting, lightheadedness, sensitivity to light and vision problems.

Neurologists at ChristianaCare have the expertise to help identify potential triggers and find the right treatment approach so you can get back to leading a full life — without worrying about when the next headache or migraine will strike. When you consult one of our specialists, they will ask about your health history as well as have you describe your headaches: how long they typically last, when they occur, how severe they are, what type of pain you experience, and other details.

Once they have gathered information about your headaches, your neurologist can focus on finding the right treatment options. These may include one or more medications, both to prevent headaches or to stop them or make them less severe once they start. For patients with chronic migraines, your neurologist may recommend Botox® injections. Botox® was approved by the FDA for chronic migraines in 2010, and many of our patients have experienced relief from it.
