Each bed in the hospital is given a pillow cover as well as two bed sheets; yet, there was 2% added usage of linen owing to various reasons including linen becoming filthy, wet, etc. Apollo hospital keeps a security stock of linen for just two days and any linen that were sent for washing is returned on day d+2.
