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, Christiana Care is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Friday, Jan. 18. 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. We began restricting visitors under the age of 16 years in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Women’s and Children’s areas on Jan. 18.

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, Christiana Care está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 18 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. Comenzamos la restricción de visitas a menores de 16 años en nuestra Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (NICU) y en las áreas para Mujeres y Niños desde el 18 de enero.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Christiana Care Patient Portal

Sign-up Now for Your New Patient Portal!

 Be in touch with your doctor online!

As we transition to our new electronic health record system, you also get access to a new, improved Patient Portal that will provide access to all your Christiana Care health information, whether in the hospital, getting imaging or lab work or at your doctor’s office, enabling us to create our One Patient, One Chart electronic health record. Please note, if you already had a portal for a hospital stay or lab or imaging studies, you will now see your Christiana Care doctor information there too.

Christiana Care’s new portal provides you the ability to:

  • View your health records and test results.
  • View your doctor’s recommendations.
  • Request your prescription renewal.
  • View and manage your appointments.
  • Communicate directly and securely with your care team.

With our Patient Portal, patients can manage their health care outside of the traditional office visit, giving you more control over your care and health because all your Christiana Care medical records are in one easy to access location. Thank you for allowing us to serve you and be respectful, caring partners in your health.

“My patients really love the patient portal. It’s a better way to communicate with the office and not have to wait on the phone. They are able to communicate at their convenience.” —  David Driban, M.D., Christiana Care New Castle Family Medicine.
