We instil good practice runs for accreditation audits, ensuring policies and procedures are met for aged care safety. As great practice opportunities for accreditation audits, our facility inspection audits combine equipment maintenance inspections, cleaning processes, and infection control tools. We bring a fresh set of eyes on-site, assuring that your systems are taking care of assets/ equipment and those in your care properly.

As Australia and New Zealand’s leading Infection Prevention and Control Services company, our expert team at Bug Control has been conducting on-site infection prevention and control audits for Aged Care Facilities for nearly twenty-five years.
We identify supporting evidence in your self-assessment review, provide our initial report within an hour of the audit, and prepare a full written report that details our findings and unique recommendations to aid your team. Our report also includes any evidence of issues photographed with a useful dashboard that tracks your progress against the action plan provided.
The Bug Control Towards Zero™ program includes a comprehensive IPC audit of your facility, highlighting any gaps in documentation, equipment, or processes preventing you from meeting the requirements.
See the five steps in our Towards Zero™ process that allows your facility to save time and money, reduce costs, increase profits, and stop infections. These steps are Discovery, Planning, Resources, Execute, and Measure.
An independent IPC audit can locate the holes in your aged care facility’s infection control program. If you realise you may have gaps in your infection control program but don’t recognise where they are, we are here to help. Do you require support to get real change happening in your facility? An environmental IPC audit from Bug Control can help.
Environmental audits are an excellent way for facility managers to get on top of infection control and cleaning gaps in their facilities. An independent audit brings fresh eyes into your facility, showing the areas your team needs to develop.
Receive our report stating where your cleaning processes and infection control are doing well and where you should focus your efforts. These processes also serve as excellent practice runs for accreditation audits.
Get a plan of action to implement. We can assist you in locating gaps in your IPC program and presenting a plan to fix them. Create a consistently safe environment for you and your team to work in and for your residents to live. Get back your peace of mind, and know for certain that you’ve got the right plans and processes in place.
Here is what our environmental audit may look like:
Our process consists of three core tasks; the booking, review, and feedback steps performed. Initially, we receive a consultation booking made by a member of your team. At this stage, we engage with you via phone to discuss your needs for infection control, provide a quote and get our visit organized. If you have any queries or worries about our audits, please don’t hesitate to let our team know at any stage.
Secondly, we’ll access your location to enact our review of your infection control program. An IPC consultant from our organization will offer a fresh view of your space, expressing the areas of focus required by your team after the facility has been inspected. Our staff will take time to view clinical spaces, kitchen, laundry, and cleaning services while reviewing your documentation to make certain they adhere to legislative standards.
Lastly, we will provide expert feedback in the form of a full comprehensive report and action plan which regards what you are doing perfectly and the elements of your service which need to be honed. This report style will help you immediately make improvements to your infection control, locate gaps in your IPC plan, and check for the complete correct procedures put in place to give your residents the ideal care and safety.
