Procesos de resistencia de los trabajadores del Hospital San Juan de Dios (1999-2015)
Triviño Maldonado, Karen Paola
This research project analyzes the resistance processes of the workers from Hospital San Juan de Dios in Bogotá, which closed its doors in 2001. Despite the fact of not being in operation without any labor guarantee, a group of workers remain indefinite in the hospital signing daily assistance or living in it. The study explores the effects of the neoliberal policies in the public health system, from the closure of the Hospital San Juan de Dios and the effects of these policies on the workers’ lives who were linked to it. It is proposed to give an account of how workers refuse to lose their social status as workers, for which they have created new occupational functions of care and protection of the Hospital as their new patient. Legitimacy actions transcend different political strategies such as the construction of historical narratives and the heritagization of the Hospital.
