Infection Prevention and Control Policies and Procedures for Aged Care Facilities in Australia and New Zealand

Bug Control has updated its infection prevention and control (IPC) policies and procedures manual to reflect the New Quality Standards for Aged Care (July 2019) and the updated NHMRC Guidelines (May 2019). All our policies and guidelines are evidence-based and reflect best practice in infection prevention and control in Australia and New Zealand.

All policies are prepared to current international, national and state Infection Prevention and Control Legislation, Standards and Guidelines, together with relevant Australian and New Zealand Standards.

Our manual is available in hard copy or as an eManual.

Hard copy manual

Our hard copy manual is regularly updated to reflect changing standards. The IPC manual has helped practitioners implement policies and procedures for infection prevention and control. All the information contained within is evidence-based and reflects best practice in Australia and New Zealand. The IPC manual has recently been updated to reflect the new aged care quality standards and NHMRC guidelines.

You can purchase a physical manual through our store.


The Bug Control IPC manual is regularly updated to reflect the latest information and guidelines from Australia and New Zealand. It is updated as soon as new information and standards are available — you don’t need to wait for a new print copy to be available.

Users can access the eManual at any time, from anywhere. It has rapid search functionality, and you can print single pages or entire sections from it. A subscription means that you always have the most up-to-date information at your fingertips through your smartphone, tablet or laptop.

Bug Control can also provide IPC Manuals specific to the community setting, as well as cleaning and laundry services.

If your office is going digital,  we now also offer our Infection Control manuals to our customers and these are now all available online. The e-Manuals are accessed via a URL and you can print any part of the manual at any time. Information throughout the manual can be easily searched and is fully referenced. The manual is regularly updated. Each facility will have unlimited access, on any device at any time 24/7. The manual can also be downloaded into PDF format. Email alerts regarding any updates ensure that you always have the most up to date information at hand.
