This study was conducted in a descriptive and relational type in order to determine the relationship between functional independence levels and depressive symptoms of patients who underwent surgery for intracranial hemorrhage and quality of life. The study was carried out in Gülhane Training and Research Hospital and Hacettepe University Adult Hospital Brain and Neurosurgery Clinic between May 2021 and December 2022. The sample of the study consisted of 91 patients. "Descriptive Information Form", "Nottingham Health Profile", "Functional Independence Measure" and "Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale" were used to collect data. “Introductory Information Form” was applied to the patients on the first day of their clinical hospitalization, and the other three scales were administered one month after discharge. The mean score of the patients for the first part of the Nottingham Health Profile was 294.76±147.21; Functional Independence Scale mean score was 83.95±33.98; The mean score they got from the depression dimension of the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale was found to be 9.76±4.65. It was determined that the quality of life increased with the increase in the level of functional independence of the patients, and the quality of life decreased with the increase in depression levels. Research results show that quality of life is related to functional independence and depression levels; showed that there was no correlation between gender, age, bleeding site and quality of life. In line with the results of the research, it is recommended that the evaluation of functional independence level and depressive symptoms affecting the quality of life in patients who underwent surgery for intracranial hemorrhage should be performed by a multidisciplinary team in the long term.
