TERAN ROSERO, Gustavo Javier et al. Critical analysis of social responsibility in health entities. Rev Cubana Invest Bioméd [online]. 2017, vol.36, n.1. ISSN 0864-0300.

ABSTRACT The study of social responsibility, beyond striking, is of itself responsible and important if one takes into account that more and more obligations that organizations must assume with their employees, society and the environment. This article presents a critical analysis of the practice of social responsibility in health institutions. We reviewed the literature published in the last five years in three regional databases on social responsibility in the health sector in Latin America. It was evidenced the evolution of the term of social responsibility, in agreement with other subjects of the organizational management with which this practice is related, with regularities in the health sector given the nature of this activity, like the relation to cultural aspects of the organization, ethical and environmental, and with potential for its effective development from an adequate social control. The study of social responsibility in health institutions allows us to visualize the remaining challenges for the effective development of relations between organizations and society
