Aussie makes a bizarre discovery in their hotel room bed – but there’s a VERY simple explanation

  • Australian hotel guest is shocked to find sheet with tag marked ‘NSW HealthShare’
  • The hotel where they were found was used as a hotel quarantine facility
  • Many Australians speculated they were leftovers from its time as a quarantine facility
  • However, others said there may have been a mix-up at a communal laundromat

A guest has reacted in shock and confusion to a tag he found on a bed sheet in his hotel room.

Instead of being branded with the name of the Sydney hotel or a premium brand, it is branded “NSW HealthShare”.

The angry hotel guest posted a photo of the leaf on Reddit, asking for help from other users to explain what was going on.

“They are from NSW HealthShare,” said one particularly helpful response.

HealthShare NSW, according to its website, is “a statewide organization established to provide high quality shared services to support the delivery of patient care within the NSW healthcare system.”

“There’s RFID in there because they go through an industrial laundry like Parramatta Linen Service and then get redistributed to public healthcare facilities like hospitals in NSW.”

RFID stands for radio frequency identification. It is a form of wireless communication used to uniquely identify an object, animal or person.

Another poster said the hotel was being used as a Covid-19 quarantine facility and was likely to have stayed there once the mandatory quarantine was over and the property was back to being a normal hotel.

Another suggested there had been a mix-up at an industrial laundry.

“I love it when there’s a mix of sheets and the hospital gets a few from a hotel.”

The sheet’s 50-50 cotton-polyester blend, often referred to as polycotton, has not been approved.

“I remember my mum buying me shirts made of this stuff that smell bad after half a day, they can’t be ironed, they can’t be washed at high heat,” one commenter said. .

Another said they were recently in hospital and encountered similar sheets. They “are just awful,” the poster said.

In defense of the hotel concerned, another reviewer said they usually have 100% cotton sheets – supporting the idea that the sheet in question was just a mix-up.

Daily Mail Australia has contacted the hotel where the photo of the leaf is believed to have been taken, seeking comment on the story.
