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.

Combined emergency medicine / family medicine elective (4th year)

Christiana Care Health System Departments of Family and Community Medicine and Emergency Medicine offer a combined emergency medicine/family medicine outpatient elective rotation. This rotation includes:

  • One week spent seeing patients in our Family Medicine Center with a faculty member or resident physician.
  • One week spent on the Family Medicine inpatient service at Wilmington Hospital. We care for patients from our Family Medicine Center and other family medicine community sites including nursing homes, juvenile detention facilities, community attending physician practices that use our service as their admitting hospitalist group, and also unassigned patients. This service is provided by a team that includes a faculty member, two upper year residents and three interns. A fourth-year student would function in this setting as a subintern with basically the same responsibilities as an intern.
  • Two weeks spent in the Emergency Medicine Departments at Wilmington and Christiana Hospitals.

This elective rotation would be beneficial to those students interested in pursuing a combined training in family and emergency medicine. Our residency program is the first of its kind in the country, offering a comprehensive and cohesive curriculum that synthesizes the best of these two strong departments.

Training will take place under the supervision of both specialties and is designed to provide the optimal educational experience for those seeking to practice in both specialties.

A car is recommended for this rotation. Housing during the rotation may be available if the student meets criteria established by Christiana Care.
