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, Christiana Care is implementing a temporary visitation age restriction starting Friday, Jan. 18. 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. We began restricting visitors under the age of 16 years in our Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and Women’s and Children’s areas on Jan. 18.

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, Christiana Care está implementando una restricción temporal en la edad de visitantes a partir del viernes 18 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. Comenzamos la restricción de visitas a menores de 16 años en nuestra Unidad de Cuidados Intensivos Neonatales (NICU) y en las áreas para Mujeres y Niños desde el 18 de enero.

Gracias por su comprensión y cooperación.

Women's Health Care

Tailored to you

Caring for Yourself

Life with a new baby is wonderful, but it can also be unpredictable and demanding – making it difficult for you to look after your own needs and emotional wellness. We are here to help.

Emotional Wellness

If you are experiencing negative emotions as a new mother, either towards you or your baby, you may have a perinatal mood disorder, perinatal anxiety, or both. Christiana Care offer support to women suffering with these and offers a comprehensive program available to you during pregnancy and after delivery. These disorders are very treatable, and you can recover.

Before you leave the hospital with your newborn, a behavioral-health specialist is available to meet with you to discuss how you are coping with motherhood. This specialist can assess your emotional and mental-health needs.

Speak to us

If you feel you pose an immediate danger to yourself, your baby or others, please call 911 or immediately go to the emergency room of Wilmington Hospital or Christiana Hospital.

You also may call Christiana Care’s 24-hour Crisis Line on 302-320-2118.

Our Services

These services are available to expectant mothers who are experiencing similar feelings relating to their pregnancy or mothers who have long since left the hospital. Perinatal mood and anxiety disorders can occur up to a year after childbirth.

  • Listening to you and reviewing what services may work best for you.
  • Counseling for you and your family.
  • Finding the right medicine for you.
  • Working with your doctor to plan the best care for you and your family.
  • Counseling for women who have psychiatric illnesses.
