- Purpose: The purpose of this study was to describe patients’ perception on sleep and to investigate related actors on their perception on sleep.
Methods: An exploratory cross-sectional survey design was used to examine patients’ perception on sleep quality in ICUs and related factors on their perception. Questionnaires were asked of patients who had been receiving care in ICUs.
Results: Related to their perception of their sleep, the mean of total sleep score was 1.70(0=the poorest sleep, 4=optimal sleep). Older age was significantly associated with better sleep in ICUs. The number of days in ICUs was significantly correlated with poorer sleep among patients staying in ICUs between 2 to 14 days.
Conclusion: Critically ill patients in ICUs would perceive poor sleep quality. Nurses who work with patients in the ICUs need to assess how well individual patients perceive their sleep, what they consider the causes of their disturbed sleep, and to make an effort to facilitate their sleep in ICU environments.
