Introduction: Nursing care in the hospital environment can have an emotional impact on children and families, but humanized care has made this process less traumatic. Objective: To verify if the physiotherapist's care with the children hospitalized in a public hospital occurs in a humanized way from the perspective of the relatives. Methods: This is an observational, descriptive and quantitative study. The population was composed of 20 relatives of children under 12 years of age, hospitalized at least 24 hours, who performed at least three physiotherapy sessions. As an instrument, a questionnaire elaborated by Lopes (2009) was used, adapted by the researchers. Results: The majority of the children were male (55%), mean age 03-24 months (55%), with a predominance of pneumonia (25%). The female gender (95%) was the prevalence of family members, mothers (90%), single women (40%), with ages ranging from 18 to 29 years (50%). Cardiorespiratory Measurement and guidelines (16%) were the most used physiotherapeutic procedures. The care of the physiotherapist was predominant (100%) and the use of playful care was (75%) negative. Conclusion: it was observed that the care of the physiotherapist with hospitalized children occurs in a humanized way, but leaves gaps regarding the use of playfulness.
