Bug Control has been helping aged care facilities and their teams protect their consumers from infections and outbreaks by providing infection prevention and control (IPC) consulting services to the aged care industry since 1995.

We understand the new Aged Care Quality Standards (July 2019) and NHMRC Guidelines (May 2019). Bug Control advice is always evidence-based and reflects best practice in Australia and New Zealand. Our consultants are experienced practitioners in infection prevention and control in aged care.

As industry-leaders in Infection Prevention and Control, we provide a wide range of consulting services, education, resources and audits. Bug Control provides policy and procedure manuals that include:

  • Management of flu and gastro outbreaks
  • Implementation of Antimicrobial Stewardship (AMS) policies
  • Infection prevention and control and its application to cleaning, catering (kitchen) and laundry services
  • Evidence-based training materials
  • A comprehensive Policies & Procedures Manual

as well as consulting and auditing services to help facilities meet changing IPC guidelines.

Bug Control’s membership provides multi-user access to our education and resource platform which allows Bug Control members access to a wealth of IPC resources, including mandatory training, our certification programme and informative videos and webinars. 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).
