practices in infection prevention?
An outbreak is the last thing you want or need. Outbreaks are costly, stressful and can be easily avoided with a robust IPC plan. How do you know if yours is robust? It will be with our infection control resources and audits.
Our expert IPC consultants will review your Aged Care Facility to ensure there are no gaps in your infection control program.

We have updated our resources to reflect the requirements of the new Aged Care Quality Standards (ACQS) following their introduction on July 1 2019, and the Australian Guidelines for the Prevention and Control of Infection in Healthcare (NHMRC guidelines, May 2019).

Bug Control Client Testimonials
We’ve been helping Aged Care Facilities across Australia and NZ to protect their consumers and staff from potentially deadly infections for almost twenty-five years. Our clients are delighted with our quality of service, but don’t just take our word for it — here’s what they have to say.
