Your Trusted Infection Prevention Partner.

Pendulum’s Infection Prevention and Control Assessment takes an in-depth look at a facility’s infection control program. This risk assessment can be conducted on-location or as a comprehensive desk-based assessment (link to comp desk-based landing page)

 

Following the assessment, a written report is provided that includes the consultant’s findings and recommendations to enhance the facility’s infection control program. The facility will also receive access to an online risk management resource center where they can find tools to address recommendations.
