Duty of Care
A duty of care refers to: "...an acceptable standard of care that is ‘reasonably practicable’ be provided to ensure the health and safety of those at the workplace and also to those affected by the work..." of a health care professional.
The nursing profession expects that nurses will conduct themselves personally and professionally in a way that will maintain public trust and conﬁdence in the profession. Nurses have a responsibility to the individual, society, and the profession to provide safe and competent nursing care which is responsive to individual, group and community needs, and the profession.

The Medical Board of Australia states “Cosmetic medical and surgical procedures are performed by medical practitioners with a range of different qualifications. The problems that arise for patients are not all caused by one group of practitioners. By setting guidelines that apply to everyone, the Board is doing what it can to make sure that all medical practitioners practise within their skill and ability and provide safe care to their patients.”
Local anaesthesia is present in some cosmetic injection products, and also forms a part of the skin preparation process prior to injections. At Suppelle®, emergency equipment and Medical Practitioners are always onsite during all medical procedures. This provides you with immediate medical attention and intervention if a complication occurs.
“The treating practitioner is to take explicit responsibility for post-procedure patient care”. If you are ever unhappy with your results, it is primarily the treating practitioner’s responsibility to assess, advise and correct this for you.
If you have had an unhappy experience elsewhere, Suppelle® requires your treatment records before undertaking any corrective measures.
