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.

Balance and Mobility

Problems with balance, dizziness and movement can affect your ability to confidently do the activities you love. Our physical therapists at ChristianaCare Rehabilitation Services can help improve your coordination, balance and movement. Our therapists listen to your needs and partner with you to develop a treatment plant that helps you get back to the life you want to live.

Common dizziness and balance disorders (vestibular and non-vestibular) that can be helped by vestibular rehabilitation therapists:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV).
  • Bilateral vestibular hypofunction.
  • Cervicogenic dizziness/headache (CGD/CGH).
  • Falls prevention/balance dysfunction.
  • Other multi-factorial dysequilibrium.
  • Post-concussion syndrome.
  • Unilateral vestibular hypofunction (UVH): acoustic neuroma /vestibular neuritis.
  • Vertigo from central causes: stroke/multiple Sclerosis/traumatic brain injury.

We perform the following specialized balance and mobility tests:

  • Benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV): Dix Hallpike or Roll Test.
  • Cervicogenic dizziness/headache (CGD/CGH): upper cervical testing and head motion sensitivity testing.
  • Falls Prevention: Tests for postural stability/sway; including the Modified Clinical Test of Sensory Integration of Balance.
  • Ocular and gaze stabilization testing.
  • Post-concussion: various tests for sensitization, central symptoms or cervical symptoms.
  • Unilateral vestibular hypofunction (UVH): Head Thrust; Head-Shaking Nystagmus.
  • Video oculography vestibular testing for BPPV or vestibular hypofunction.

Additionally, many diagnoses may benefit from audiological vestibular testing.
