You don’t have time to do everything.

Make infection control in aged care simple with Bug Control.

Even the best managers struggle to stay on top of infection control best practice. Between AMS, surveillance, PPE and staff education, it’s a lot.

Bug Control offer education, policy manuals, environmental audits, IPC Lead support and more to help you get on top of infection control in your aged care facility.

This media-rich platform includes printable resources to make infection control easier, as well as links to government resources and material to make staff training easier and more effective.

Bug Control Membership

Bug Control membership gives you access to our education platform (LMS), full of infection control training, quizzes and resources. Our LMS lets you track staff training progress and award certificates for course completion.

IPC Audits

It’s hard to assess your facility objectively, which is why Bug Control offer independent audits. One of our expert IPC consultants will come to your facility and review your cleaning and infection control processes, as they’re performed on the floor.

We provide a comprehensive report and action plan to help you prioritise training and resources for the future.
