Introduction: One of the greatest challenges that health professionals face is providing humanized care, especially when technological advancements contribute to the depersonalization of care delivery. In this sense, nursing care not only requires the nurse to be scientific, academic, and clinical but also a humanitarian and moral agent, as a partner in human transactions. Method: Quantitative, descriptive, and transversal study. In a nonprobabilistic sampling for convenience, in 150 surgical patients, with more than 3 days of hospital stay, the instrument “Perception of Behaviors of Humanized Nursing Care” was used (third version). The study adhered to the legal and ethical research guidelines in Mexico. Results: According to the general objective of the study, the findings determined were that 67% of the participants perceived humanized nursing care as favorable Conclusion: More than half of the patients always perceived behaviors of humanized care, provided by nurses, during their hospitalization in surgical services.
