The purpose of this pilot study is to determine the occurrence and characteristics of sleep disruption reported by adults during acute care hospitalization. The conceptual model is based upon sleep as a physiological event. Sleep is essential for recovery of illness. There are few studies to describe the occurrence of sleep disruption during hospitalization. In this study, two acute care medical-surgical units are being used to recruit 20 adult subjects. The Verran & Snyder-Halpern (VSH) Sleep Scale, a visual analogue instrument, is being used to subjectively measure sleep characteristics. The subjects complete the survey for two consecutive nights. Additional data being collected includes demographic information, all current medical diagnosis, medications, and pertinent hospital information. After completion of the data collection, the data will be analyzed using descriptive statistics. The VSH Sleep Scale total scores and the subscale scores will be calculated. The relationship between demographic data, VSH total and subscale scores, and medical diagnosis will be analyzed using Chi square and correlational statistics. Information obtained from this pilot study will be used to structure a subsequent research study to assess the impact of an intervention to promote sleep in hospitalized patients. Active recruitment of subjects began July 2004. Data collection is ongoing. Preliminary results will be presented. (Poster Presentation)
