Would you sleep on this hospital pillow?

Are we taking the right measures to reduce risks around contaminated hospital pillows?

One of the more colourful hospital pillow photographs to have been submitted to us. This pillow was beyond cleaning and disinfection and was rightfully condemned. Infection control are aware of the risk with hospital pillows but are the counter measures in place to reduce these risks? Reforming how we equip, clean and audit hospital pillow provisions has been shown to reduce risks,  we felt this picture really is as good as a thousand words.
