Appendix 8 - Best Practice - Management of Linen at care level
Linen bagging and tagging
Ensure all linen bags are:
- Securely tied
- Not overfilled
- Tagged with Hospital, ward/department and date
If linen process has been outsourced to an industrial service provider, follow the categorisation system for used and infectious linen set out by the service provider.
