“Following a major outbreak in 2016, we were very concerned about not repeating our experiences.  

Working with Bug Control was(and continues to be) an outstanding experience. Since developing and implementing the Zero Outbreak Plan we have had zero outbreaks."  

MELINDA ABELL - Director of Care, Maroba

“Bug Control (Infection Control Advisory Service) worked with St Sergius Aged Care to develop a strategic plan and step-by-step guidance to prevent and control infections among our care recipients and staff.  

Winter in 2017 was the worst flu season on record and the strategy was very successful. We have been very impressed at the outcome of all projects offered by Bug Control."  

ILMIRA CHERNYAKOVA - Director of Care, St. Sergius Aged Care

​​"The Pioneers Lodge Aged Care Facility has had the pleasure of working with the professional staff at Bug Control for the past 10 years.  

Over this time we have received staff training that is up to date and individualized at our Facility. We have found all their manuals to be clear, easy to understand, concise yet comprehensive and very relevant to the aged care environment. We would definitely recommend Bug Control to others."
