Method: This research design used cross sectional study with a sample of 97 diabetic ulcer patients in a clinic wound care. The research instruments consist of Perceived Stress Scale (PSS) to assess the stress level, and the Pittsburgh Sleep Quality Index (PSQI). Questionnaire to identify the sleep quality. Results: The results showed that there was a significant difference between subjective sleep quality and sleep quality measured using PSQI (p: 0.001). Factors that affected sleep quality were income (p: 0.014), stress levels (p: 0.001), medications (p: 0.026), pain levels (p: 0.048), and diet (p: 0.009). Conclusion: The results of this study indicate that the importance of conducting sleep quality assessment with the associated factors is to overcome the sleep problems in diabetic patients.
