im not a nurse but work as a linen staff in a hospital also in housekeeping prn and want to know what is the best way to handle soiled linen? Putting on the floor is a safety hazrd, and leaving a bag in a patient rm is not happening. I want to make shure deliveries are done ontime as well since we get tons of complaints grom nursing staff. in general, as nurses, what can linen staff do to improve or what system workz for you? thanks
At my hospital, each pt room has a hamper and a roll of large plastic bags. If bags fill up before housekeeping rounds, it gets taken to the dirty utility room.
