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.

Overview

When your loved one has a potentially life-threatening injury, the first hours of care are the most important to his or her survival – and the most stressful for the family and friends who rush to the patient’s side.

The trauma team at Christiana Hospital wants you to know that you are not alone. We understand what you are going through and we will help you during this difficult and painful time. Experience has taught us that the more you know about the process of treating your loved one, the better you will deal with the crisis at hand.

This website will help you know what to expect at the different stages of care, from arrival in the Emergency Department through admission, to follow-up care after discharge. When you don’t understand something, ask us, we’re here to help.

As the regional Level 1 trauma center serving adults and children, ChristianaCare has the highest level of trained health care personnel, resources, services and equipment necessary for the best care of the critically injured patient.
