Quality of life (QOL) is an important aspect of a complete outcomes evaluation, to document the effects of rehabilitation for persons with disabilities, including those with stroke. A Comparative Descriptive Study is carried out in Al-Najaf City/Al-Najaf Al-Ashraf Health Directorate / Al-Forat Center for Neurological Sciences, from Nov. 6th, 2013, to April, 10th, in order to assess the quality of life for ischemic versus hemorrhagic stroke.A non-probability (Quota sample) of 200 patients (100 ischemic stroke patients, and 100 hemorrhagic stroke patients). The data are collected using semi-constructed questionnaire, which consists of three parts (1) Patients' Demographic data. (2) Patients' clinical data. (3) Patients’ quality of life (WHOQOL). Validity of the questionnaire is determined through a five experts, who have more than 10 years of experience in nursing field. The data described statistically and analyzed through use of the descriptive and inferential statistical analysis procedures. The findings of the present study indicate that the ischemic stroke patients responses were failure at all the studied domains, except at the level of independency and environmental domain their responses were pass. While the hemorrhagic stroke patients responses were failure at all the studied domains. The study concludes that the ischemic stroke affect all the quality of life domains except the level of independence and environmental domains. While the hemorrhagic stroke affect all the quality of life domains without exceptions. While the study recommends that further studies conducted to involve a large sample size may be at a national level to obviously determine the quality of life for patients with ischemic versus hemorrhagic stroke.
