Sleep, as one of the key life activities, is an important indicator of the quality of life. Chronic kidney disease, with a high prevalence, is a serious condition that can deteriorate the sleep quality of patients. This study was carried out to investigate the correlation between sleep quality and dialysis adequacy in hemodialysis (HD) patients on a population and sample consisting of 50 patients receiving HD treatment at a training and research hospital in Amasya. Data were collected using “Patient Information Form,” “Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI),” and “Good Dialysis Index (GDI).” Sleep patterns of patients during HD were observed and recorded for three weeks. The average age was 64.46 years (minimum: 22, maximum: 86; standard deviation: 14.612), 56% (n = 28) are women, 64% (n = 32) are married, 82% (n = 41) have PSQI score >5, and 60% were found to have 30 min weekly average sleep duration during HD sessions. A statistically significant relationship was found between the overall GDI scores and the overall Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI) scores of the patients (P <0.05). PSQI scores of patients increase with increasing GDI scores. Good dialysis adequacy improves the sleep quality of patients.
