Objective: The aim of the present study was to determine the quality of sleep and depression scores of hemodialysis patients and to search their relationship.

Materials and Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed on 150 patients at the Erciyes University Health Application and Research Center and a private dialysis center between July 2017 and November 2017. A questionnaire form including the demographic sociocultural properties of the patients and Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) and Beck Depression Inventory (BDI) was used as data collection tools.

Results: The patients’ mean PSQI point was 11.82±2.81, and the BDI mean point was 15.1±9.65. The BDI mean point was significantly higher in patients with chronic disease other than chronic renal failure than in patients without other chronic diseases (p<0.05). The PSQI and BDI mean points were both significantly high in patients reporting change in life due to the disease (p<0.05). The BDI mean points were significantly high in patients feeling extremely tired after dialysis (p<0.05). There was a weak positive correlation between the PSQI and the BDI points (p<0.01).

Conclusion: The depression points of patients with chronic disease other than chronic renal insufficiency were higher. Quality of sleep was low in patients with high depression points.
