Abstract: 

Background and Objective: Sleep has always been considered as one of the most essential needs of humans. Patients need sleeping more than healthy individuals. Results of recent studies indicate that disease and hospitalization have close relationship with sleeping disturbances. This study is an attempt to assess the sleep disturbance-related factors in patients admitted to Medical-Surgical wards of Ali Ebne Abitaleb Teaching hospital of Rafsanjan.
Materials and Methods: Using questionnaire, this cross sectional descriptive study was performed. Sampling was target based and sample size was determined by use of volume assigning. Considering the probability of the out breaking at 80%, the sample size of 245 patients was determined. Samples were selected equally from medical and surgical wards. The collected data in the form of descriptive statistics were analyzed by using SPSS software. Furthermore, for determining the relationship between the demographic characters and the type of ward, based on the patients’ out look, non parametric statistics was used.
Results:
 51.2%of the samples were male and 48.8% were female and most of them (33.9%)were under 25 years old. 49.1% of the patients claimed that the quality of their sleep had been decreased. The comparison of factors affecting the sleep disturbances showed statistically significant differences (p<0.001). The most effective factors were personal, environmental and attentive factors, respectively. Having pain and restlessness were the most frequent personal factors. Moaning and other patients, crying, quality of hospital beds, room temperature and the noise caused by hospital equipments were the most effective environmental factors. Among attentive factors, being awake for receiving medicine or serum taking was the most important one.
Conclusion:
Half of the studied patients complained from sleeping disturbances and according to their opinion, controlling or removing the above-mentioned factors can be suggested.
