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.

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.
