Pendulum, a leading force in risk management consulting, has expert risk control consultants to help hospitals maximize its risk management efforts.


The hospital setting presents unique challenges in the areas of risk and defensibility. Pendulum offers specialized services to help these facilities face those challenges. Our risk assessments are designed to help identify opportunities for risk reduction and enhancement of defensibility.

We Know How To Identify And Provide Opportunities For Risk Reduction And Enhancement Of Defensibility.

The Process Of An Assessment:

Over the course of one or two days, one of Pendulum’s expert consultants will visit the hospital and conduct an extensive review of a clinical or operational focus area(s). The areas of review selected typically have high-risk and/or regulatory exposures. Recommendations on how to reduce risk and improve defensibility are offered throughout the process and in a comprehensive report provided to the facility.

On Location Hospital Assessment:

Some examples of selected areas of review for on-location risk management services include:

  • Administration (policies and procedures, credentialing, contracts, incident management, and claim reporting)
  • Employee relations (human resources function, employee files and orientation, performance reviews, agency use, staffing, and staff education and training)
  • Hospital programs (risk management, quality improvement, safety, infection control, and hospitalists)
  • Clinical services (nursing, emergency, surgical, anesthesia, perinatal and infant security, behavioral health, etc.)
  • Ancillary services (admissions, volunteers, etc.)
  • Physical environment
  • Other high-risk areas (medical records and documentation, OIG compliance, HIPAA, HITECH, fall management, abuse prohibition, skin integrity, informed consent, and do-not-resuscitate status)
