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.

Foot and Ankle Pain Therapy

When your feet hurt, your whole body hurts.

With 26 bones and about 100 muscles, tendons and ligaments, there is a lot that can go wrong with your feet. Sometimes the pain is brought on by injury — a break, fracture or sprain. Or you could have complications from wearing poorly fitting shoes, medical conditions or surgery.

Physical therapy helps strengthen the muscles that support your foot, ankle and lower leg, stabilize your ankle joint to prevent further injury, and improve flexibility, mobility and range of motion.

If you suffer any of the following causes of foot and ankle pain, or have recently had foot or ankle surgery, we can help:

  • Achilles rupture.
  • Achilles tendonitis/tendonosis.
  • Broken ankle.
  • Bunion.
  • Overuse injury characterized by pain and inflammation.
  • Plantar fasciitis.
  • Stress fracture.
  • Turf toe.
