Arnold agrees to conduct the review but soon discovers that he requires some expert advice, as the knowledge required to review some of the nursing and podiatry infection control procedures are beyond his scope of practice. The community health centre does not permanently employ anyone suitably qualified to assist Arnold in this infection control review process, so Arnold consults the WHS polices to find out what rights he has to access help.
