Salem Hospital switches to prison laundry



SALEM, Ore. (AP) — Salem Hospital is unhappy with the work of a private contractor, so it will use the commercial laundry at the Oregon State Penitentiary to clean its microfiber mob heads.

Spokeswoman Julie Howard told the Statesman Journal that mop heads were coming back smelly and crusty from Aramark Uniform Services and couldn’t be used. She says the hospital already contracts with the prison laundry for bed linens and staff scrubs and is happy with the inmate labor.

A spokeswoman for Aramark in Philadelphia says it stands behind the quality of it service.
