Resumen

SALAS PELAYO, Hugo Humberto. Operation and dynamics of the ill rooms of the Hospital Real de San Miguel de Belén of Guadalajara between 1797-1799. Let. hist. [online]. 2018, n.18, pp.63-92. ISSN 2448-8372.  https://doi.org/10.31836/lh.18.6734.

Between 1797-1799 the rooms for the ill in the Hospital Real de San Miguel de Belén, were run by the order of Our Lady of Bethlehem known as the Bethlemitas. In that period of time, in the New Spain and in Guadalajara, an epidemic of smallpox occurred. Thus, this medical institution had to provide assistance to both the virulent and convalescent patients with other diseases. Based on the analysis of the hospital records at that time, we can examine the procedures used for the care and distribution of patients in the hospital rooms as well as the social needs of the moment, paying attention to the capacity to provide care and shelter to the poor and sick that required assistance.

Palabras llave : epidemic of smallpox; ill; Hospital de Belén; Hospital records; bethlemitas.
