The aim of this research is studying about the effect of chamomile ointment on the betterment of surgery wounds in the diabetic patients. The method of this research is on the basis of random clinical trials. 60 diabetic patients who had gone to Imam Ali hospital in Kermanshah city were selected randomly within two groups of intervention and control. From the second day after the surgery, the wound region was bandaged with the chamomile ointment. From the second day after the surgery, the wound region was cleaned after removing the tracheal tube from the sternum region. Daily washing was done by means of betadine and bandage for 14 days in the control group. The amount of wound healing evaluated by means of the Bates-jensen after the surgery in the following days: 4, 7 and 14. SPSS 16 was implemented in order to analysis the data. The descriptive statistics was implemented in the current research including standard deviation, frequency distribution table and the mean determination. The following tests also were used in order to determine the homogeneity of samples: Kolmogorov–Smirnov test and Mann–Whitney U test. The amount of mean and standard deviation of the total rate of wound healing was p=0.75. Therefore, there was not any meaningful difference between the two groups. However, there was a meaningful difference between two groups about 7 days after the intervention (p<0.001). The amount of p was 0.002 about 14 days after the intervention. Chamomile ointment is able to improve the wound at least one week after the CABG surgery in the diabetic patients. The amount of this improvement is 3%.
