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

Testing and Lab Work

We offer a wide range of neurologic testing to aid in the diagnosis of neurologic disorders. EEGs, both routine and prolonged ambulatory can help to classify seizure types and aid in the diagnosis of some intermittent neurologic disorders. EMGs can aid in the accurate diagnosis of conditions such as neuropathy, radiculopathy, muscle disorders or entrapment syndromes like carpal tunnel.

Our outpatient neurology practice is the largest and most comprehensive in Delaware. It is part of the ChristianaCare family of services that include the latest imaging technology and nationally recognized physical rehabilitation services. Our neurologists lead and participate in clinical trials to bring the next generation of treatments to patients. Let us help you live better.

Your doctor may order a type of neurodiagnostic testing to determine if there is a problem with your brain, nerves or muscles. It includes the following procedures:

Electromyography (EMG)

This procedure is used to test the functioning of muscles and the nerves that control the muscles. If you have a feeling of pain, numbness, tingling in your hands, feet or limbs, an EMG can help your provider identify the cause of the problem.

Nerve Conduction Study (NCS)

This test helps your provider assess the ability of the motor neurons to send electrical signals to your muscles. Electrode stickers will be placed on your skin, and mild electric impulses will be sent to the nerves through the electrodes.

Electroencephalogram (EEG)

This is a test that records your brain waves or the electrical activity of your brain. The test can help your doctor to detect potential problems associated with the brain’s abnormal electrical activity.

We also offer comprehensive sleep medicine studies.
