Abstract  This was an exploratory, descriptive, cross-sectional study to assess sleep quality in 100 patients with venous ulcers using the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Thirty-six (36\%) patients had a global PSQI score < 5, indicating that they were good sleepers, while 64 (64\%) patients were considered poor sleepers. Fifty-three (53\%) patients reported going to bed between 9:00 pm and 11:00 pm, 63 (63\%) taking from 16 to 30 minutes to fall asleep, and 41 (41\%) waking up after 4 to 5 hours of sleep. Sixty (60\%) patients regarded sleeping as a necessity. Most patients with venous ulcers experienced poor sleep quality. .
