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.

Pediatric Rehabilitation Services

Children are born to run and play, jump and sing. Their ability to freely move and express themselves promotes independence, increases socialization through participation in group activities, enhances motor skill development, improves strength and endurance, enhances learning opportunities and allows them to assume greater responsibility in taking care of their own daily needs.

When your child’s movement, speech or hearing is restricted, life can be challenging. Our pediatric team specializes in physical and occupational therapy, speech and language pathology, early childhood education and audiology is here to help children with orthopaedic, neurological and developmental diagnoses, including:

  • Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.
  • Autism.
  • Brachial-plexus injury (to the nerves of the neck and shoulder).
  • Cerebral palsy.
  • Developmental delays in fine or gross motor skills.
  • Developmental disabilities.
  • Down syndrome.
  • Feeding and swallowing disorders.
  • Hearing loss.
  • Receptive and expressive language delay.
  • Sensory processing disorder.
  • Stuttering.
  • Torticollis (twisted neck).

Early intervention can profoundly impact a child’s skills and abilities and can help parents support their child’s improvement. We work with a variety of agencies to provide the earliest, most promising intervention.

We also understand that some children respond best to treatment in familiar surroundings, so our pediatric team will provide care in the home, daycare or school.
