Resumen

CRUZ MARTIN, Omar; HERNANDEZ MELENDREZ, Digna Edelsys  y  PEREZ INERARITY, Maydell. Hospitalized sick children well-being. Rev Hum Med [online]. 2017, vol.17, n.2, pp.396-414. ISSN 1727-8120.

Throughout their development, children face events that pose hard-to-satisfy demands for them such as illness and hospitalization. The World Health Organization defines health as a state of complete physical, mental, or social well-being; however, there is no consensus in literature about the term "well-being". The objective of the article is to do a bibliographic review on the concept of children well-being associated to the health-illness process and to hospitalization. Children experience the state of well-being when positive emotions, which favor health, prevail. Negative feelings, on the other hand, can cause pathological states and they are common in hospitalization. That reality merits transformation. Hospitalized children's well-being presents a challenge for medical sciences in order to get inside the basis of secondary health care attention.

Palabras clave : health; children well-being; hospitalized children; secondary health care.
