Clients of a Wembley Downs nurse who underwent cosmetic procedures at her home are being warned they could have been exposed to blood-borne virus or bacterial infection.
The Department of Health is warning all clients of registered nurse Tiffany Fraser to visit their general practitioner and arrange a blood test.
Chief health officer Tarun Weeramanthri said Ms Fraser was conducting the procedures, including the injection of botox and fillers, in an unregulated environment and without any documentation of infection control practices.
"While the risk of infection for individual patients is considered very low, it is important that any potential risk, no matter how unlikely, is ruled out," he said.
"The Department of Health is continuing its investigation into this possible infection control breach and advises people to exercise caution before undergoing cosmetic procedures in private homes, outside a clinical setting."
The department has written to all of Ms Fraser's known clients.
She has been reported to the Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency and further action is being considered.Anyone who received treatment at Ms Fraser's home can contact the North Metropolitan Health Service on 9380 7700 for more information.
