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.

Annual screening mammography does not require a prescription or referral from your doctor or health care provider. You must have the name of your referring doctor so we may send them the results of your screening.

Diagnostic mammography, breast ultrasound, and breast MRI require a prescription from your doctor, nurse practitioner or medical provider. For you convenience, we accepts most insurance plans.

We have made several of our forms available for patients to download. Filling these out in advance of your first visit with a surgeon or the Breast Center will allow you to complete them at your convenience and bring them to the office on the day of your visit.

If you are new to either of our practices or haven’t had an office visit in greater than 6 months, we encourage you to download, print, and fill out the patient forms. We request that returning patients’ complete new medical history forms every 6 months to keep our records current. Upon arrival, please be prepared to review one additional form that is pertinent to the day of your appointment and update your contact information.

Please don’t forget your insurance card, driver’s license and referral with you to your appointment. If you have any questions about which form to fill out please call our office. Thank you. If you’re unable to open these files, you may need to download the free Adobe Acrobat Reader program.
