​Trinity Medical Associates Newsletter

Trinity Medical Associate's mission is to nurture your body, mind, and spirit to help you achieve a state of complete well-being.

For the safety of our patients and caregivers, ChristianaCare Lab Services is no longer accepting walk-ins at most of its locations. Appointments are required for routine lab work and COVID-19 testing.

 

Appointments for Routine Lab Work

For safety reasons, patients must make an appointment before going to the labs. They can visit [christianacare.org/labservices]christianacare.org/labservices to make an appointment up to 14 days in advance.

 

Pre-Procedural COVID-19 Testing

Patients must get tested for COVID-19 three days prior to a procedure (not including the day of the procedure) at ChristianaCare. Here are directions on how patients can access procedural COVID-19 testing. After their COVID-19 test, patients must self-isolate until their procedure.

 

Sick/symptomatic COVID-19 Testing

For safety reasons, patients must make an appointment before coming to the Provider Referral Center at the Healthcare Center at Christiana. They can visit [christianacare.org/labservices]christianacare.org/labservices to make an appointment.

 

Timing of COVID-19 Test Results

We are processing as many COVID-19 tests on site as possible. When there is high demand for testing, we also send patient tests to be processed at laboratories around the country. Demand on laboratories nationally is causing intermittent delays in turnaround time. Please advise patients that the turnaround time for results is 3 to 8 days. We are actively looking for ways to expedite the turnaround time.

​​Attention! Due to public concerns over the recent outbreak of COVID-19, Trinity is taking precautions to ensure the safety of our patients and staff. Until further notice, we are cancelling our walk-in appointments. This includes Walk-in Wednesdays. This is in an effort to screen all patients who come in our offices. We want to be able to take proper precautions for patients who might have respiratory symptoms. We have protocols in place to handle these situations, and we are able to control our environment when we know a patient is coming in. We understand that this is a major inconvenience for our patients and we will reinstall our walk-in appointments when the time is right. We will continue to see scheduled patients, but please call ahead if you are experiencing any respiratory symptoms. Meanwhile, we encourage you to call our office if you don't have an appointment, but need to be seen and we can screen those calls and schedule appointments as deemed necessary. Thank you for your understanding. 

AthenaHealth is a fully integrated Electronic Health Record that will help us better engage with our patients and other healthcare providers. We will still be delivering the same top notch care that our patients are accustomed to, but we will be able to better document in our charts and fully interact with our patients.

 How much should I eat? 


Portion sizes for healthy eating:

One of the keys to healthy eating habits is healthy portion sizes.

Here's an easy way to always make good choices, right at your fingertips... literally!


Build your meal using the size of your hand:


  • Protein: That includes your meat, fish, eggs, beans. About 3 ounces of the protein of your choice should fit in your open palm.
  • Vegetable: a clinched fist is about the size of your veggies you should have on your plate. The more colorful the variety, the better.
  • Starch/ Carbohydrates: A cupped hand is all the carbs you need! This includes bread, rice, pasta, and potatoes. If you really want to spice it up,  try healthier options like quinoa, brown rice, veggie noodles, and cauliflower rice.
  • Fats: Keep the amount of butter, margarine, and oil to the size of your thumb. This is also a good rule for condiments, nut butters, toppings, and dressing.
