The Jammu and Kashmir Government has introduced a plan with different colors of bed sheets for each day of the week in the state's health institutions.

Authorities have received frequent complaints from the patients and their attendants that the hospital authorities were not replacing the bed sheets on daily basis and thus compromising with sanitation in the health institutions, the article said.
