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.

Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center

Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center

The ChristianaCare Wound Care & Hyperbaric Medicine Center provides technically advanced, surgical and non-surgical outpatient care to heal wounds that resist conventional therapy. Our capabilities include hyperbaric oxygen therapy, which can greatly improve healing and reduce healing time for some patients. Our skilled team evaluates and treats your wound, and establishes measures to prevent recurrence.

We provide care for chronic, non-healing wounds that have not shown improvement in four weeks or have failed to heal within eight weeks. These include:

  • Diabetic ulcers.
  • Ulcers on ischemic limbs (poor circulation).
  • Pressure ulcers due to immobility.
  • Venous stasis leg ulcers.

All diagnostic studies and evaluations needed to treat chronic non-healing wounds can be done within the ChristianaCare Health System. The center staff and physicians will coordinate with the patient’s primary care physician to obtain any necessary information and routinely communicate the patient’s progress towards wound healing. We will work collaboratively with your insurance company to assist in getting you the care you need. Patients are encouraged to check with their insurance provider regarding referrals or preauthorization.
