Abstract

In this paper we propose to reflect on the ethical aspects of healthcare audit, and the moral and legal responsibility that the professional playing this role has. The paper is organized into three main parts. The first is the introduction which presents general aspects of the topic, such as its importance, what it is and its purposes.
The second section corresponds to the development, and it refers to the definition, roles, responsibility, limitations and moral values of the auditor. The third is the conclusion, and this highlights the importance of performing the audit as a process of accumulating and evaluating evidence, as an activity performed by an independent and competent professional who has the duty to act for the welfare of consumers and to improve the quality of service provided by institutions in the field of health.
