City doctors announce 24-hour strike after Santojanni Hospital incidents

Graffiti reading ´Justice for Jeni´ spread along the walls inside Santojanni Hospital, located in the Buenos Aires City neighbourhood of Liniers.

Workers from city hospitals announced that from tomorrow they are to go on a 24-hour strike, in support of the demands for better safety, put forward first by the staff of public hospital Santojanni in Liniers today, where incidents occurred after a patient died and the issue of malpractice was put into question.

Santojanni Hospital workers began a 24-hour strike today, demanding better security for the establishment and its staff following an aggressive protest was held after a case of supposed malpractice when a patient died three days after giving birth.

Family and friends of the 19-year-old woman named Jennifer, who died earlier last month, three days after giving birth, gathered outside the hospital today continuing their demand for justice.

“We came here today because we were outraged that what was being talked about was the vandalism that took place yesterday and not what happened with Jennifer,” Andrea Farías said, the sister of the teenager who died on July 18 in the hospital.

The public hospital located in the City neighbourhood of Liniers will not be admitting patients for the next 24 hours.
