Comfort is a basic physiological need for human beings. The need for rest and comfort is an important need for maintaining a good quality of life1 . Although the individual needs are unique. Adequate rest and sleep is vital for optimal physical and psychosocial functioning of the individual. For sick patients rest and sleep must be considered as one of the important components of their therapy2 . Nurses must help patients to achieve optimum rest and sleep in order to expedite the process of their healing and recovery. It is, therefore, crucial to review the various aspects of sleep, factors affecting the sleep patterns in orthopedic patients and related nursing interventions in order to reduce and prevent sleep disturbances in high dependency patients in orthopedic wards1 . Methods: A quantitative quasiexperimental study conducted among conveniently selected sixty (30 experimental and 30 control) immobilized orthopedic male clients. Quality of sleep was assessed using modified sleep quality scale for both experimental and control group and partial bath was given between 6 pm to 8 pm for five days to experimental group whereas control group received no intervention. Results: Majority of the males are aged between 30 – 50 years, married and doing moderate work. More than half of the patients were staying 8-13 days in hospital postoperatively. In pre-test all the patients from both experimental and control group had severe sleep disturbance and at the end of the post test 73.33% of them from experimental group had no sleep disturbance. The t-value (0.097) with p=0.360 in pretest between experimental and control group shows that there is no significant difference which proved both the groups are equal statistically and the post test result shows that the tvalue is -28.192 with the p=<0.0001 which is highly significant deference between experimental and control group. Hence the result proved the evening partial bath is effective in improving the quality of sleep. Conclusion: The present study was aimed to assess the effectiveness of evening partial bath on quality of sleep among immobilized orthopedic male clients, the results of this study proved that the evening partial bath is effective in improve the quality of sleep among the male orthopedic clients
