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.

Pediatrics

Choosing a pediatrician is an important part of preparing for a new baby or finding a new doctor for your child. There are many things to consider including a pediatrician’s training and experience.

ChristianaCare pediatricians offer the expertise, compassion, and medical leadership so you can feel confident that your child receives the best care.

In addition, we have pediatric specialists in psychology, psychiatry, radiology, neurology and infectious disease. We also participate in clinical pediatric research. Through our active research program, we have made extraordinary contributions to the understanding of childhood diseases and the development of measures for prevention and treatment.

To ensure that our patients have access to the diagnostic and treatment programs we partner with the state in the Child Watch Program. Experience has shown that early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities, and can provide the family with the skills necessary to support improvement in the child’s condition. As key partners with Child Development Watch in New Castle County, we work with a variety of agencies to provide early intervention services in order to have an early impact on each child’s outcome.

We provide a range of inpatient and outpatient medical care for children and teens including:

  • Inpatient pediatric hospitalization.
  • Neonatal Intensive Care.
  • Well baby services.
  • Lactation services.
  • Routine exams and vaccinations.
  • Sick visits.
  • Screenings for lead poisoning.
  • Risk assessments for tuberculosis.
  • Care for chronic illnesses, including allergies, asthma and sick-cell anemia.
  • Care for physical disabilities and neurological problems.
  • Referrals to the Child Development Watch and psychological staff.
