Pendulum’s Hospice and Home Health Consultants Are Experts in Their Field.

On Location Services

Both hospice and home health care organizations are facing the challenges that come with rapid growth due to an aging population, extensive regulatory changes, partnering with hospitals through accountable care organizations, and stricter requirements for provision of services. As the complexity and use of services expands, organizations are at greater risk of liability claims unless they have sound risk management practices in place.


Pendulum, a leader in the healthcare liability risk control arena, provides risk management consulting services to help organizations manage their risk and strengthen their defensibility in the event of a claim.

  • Contracts and credentialing
  • Grievances and satisfaction programs
  • Operations, including automobile policies and sexual abuse policies
