This study aimed to investigate the socio-family inpatient Pediatric Clinic in the University Hospital of João Pessoa, analyzing the degree of interference in the health of children and adolescents and has caused the hospitalization. This is a quantitative research and field, carried out with 15 companions of the inmates in the period from March to July 2010. Then used to establish that as the number of persons per household, 33.3% have 3-5 people, 33.3% have more than 5 people and 33.3% have 1-3 people. With respect to the head of the family there is a predominance (72%) to be the father, however, is followed by grandparents (14%) whose responsibility is transferred, preceded by the mother (7%) and stepfather (7%). We noticed that 79% of household heads are men. Most mothers (53%) had incomplete primary education, followed by who attended high school (20%), 13% had incomplete secondary education, chaired only one (7%) which was not literate. Most (53%) of the parents has completed elementary school, presided over the high rate of illiterate (27%), although 13% are literate, showing the inequality of access between men and women to education. The socioeconomic and educational family interfere directly in the health conditions of children about their responsibility, since the fact that these children demonstrate these weaknesses are internal.
