In 2013 we approached Megan Reilly at Hands-On Infection Control to perform an audit of our facility and procedures according to the Australian and New Zealand office based health care standard. The analysis was thorough and efficient and the follow up advice was useful and clearly aimed at helping us efficiently achieve our goal. In some respects our requirements were unusual and Megan was very helpful and innovative in her approach to dealing with suppliers, the TGA, and other external agencies. Since that audit we have been able to consistently operate within the standard. I doubt that this would have been possible without Megan’s assistance and professionalism. I am happy to endorse her competent and efficient service.

Occupational Physician, WA

When we first sought to introduce a vaccination program for “at risk” staff I was unsure where to start and how to ensure that I covered all aspects and differentials across our diverse workforce to include information/education sessions and immunisations. Megan has a wealth of knowledge and provided this in a manner both that enabled me to feel confident and supported with our information/education sessions and immunisations, which were all done at our workplace in a cost effective manner. Megan was so good that I cannot talk highly enough of her consultancy advice and guidance, provision of immunisation services both initially and ongoing. We have also engaged Hands-On Infection Control to provide education services in relation to infection control for our day centre staff and homecare officers.

We have used Hands-On Infection Control every year since 2007 to provide flu vaccinations to our 90+ head office staff. Their service is easy and efficient. We call them, book in a day for the vaccinations and they promptly send us all the information our staff need to know. On the day they are always early and prepared, they usually run ahead of time with the vaccinations as their experienced staff know exactly what they are doing. I gladly recommend them to anyone requiring a professional efficient vaccine provider.

HR Manager

Having first met Megan back in 2007 during an infection control seminar she was presenting at, it became clear Megan and her team were the ‘go to’ consultants we’d been looking for. Megan has the unique ability to draw on her personal clinical background and her thorough and broad understanding of the Australian Standards and the individual professional guidelines under AHPRA registration, NHMRC, RACGP and others, to provide detailed and bespoke advice and guidance. Aside from that, Megan and her team are warm and helpful with every interaction and we thoroughly enjoy working with HOIC!
