Since the twentieth century, we see the concern on humanization in health care. Thus, the institutions have been preoccupied with humanized treatments and different spaces in the hospital. With respect to children may seem complex, it involves the relationship with the companion, where communication takes place through relationships of affection. The nurse must act in interaction with patient and family, taking her hand the use of therapeutic play, which is a technique based on the principles of play therapy, adapted to relieve or lessen the anxiety, or who is not hospitalized, generated by their experiences to age. The aim was to present the nursing staff the importance of humane care to the hospitalized child. The study features in literature in journals and electronic databases such as Bireme, Lilacs, Medline and Scielo. It was concluded that nursing has a real importance of humanized care at the lowest hospital, improving the peculiar way of living with the disease situation.
