Aliso Viejo, California
Welcome to the Aliso Viejo website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. This website is designed to increase your community's awareness on elder abuse and nursing home neglect.
Aliso Viejo remains as Orange County's most recently instated city. As of the 2010 census, the city's population was recorded as 47,823 and is continuing to grow and develop as a community.
Situated in the San Joaquin Hills of southern California, there are few that would not be awestruck by Aliso Viejo's scenic backdrop of lush mountains and streams. As a city that channels serenity and calm with its natural beauty, Aliso Viejo offers an ideal environment for elderly adults, and is home to one skilled nursing facility.
Although the city undoubtedly provides an excellent atmosphere for skilled nursing facilities, we would like to caution you against automatically assuming that every nursing home in the city will offer the high-quality of care that your loved one requires. Due to their weakened immune systems, elderly adults are more vulnerable to contracting various infections and viruses, including urinary tract infections, sepsis, the influenza, pressure ulcers, clostridium difficile (C. difficile), scabies, and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Since nursing homes can facilitate the spread of infection, it is the responsibility of caretakers to take measures of prevention. Because infection control measures can sometimes be tedious and time-consuming, nurses are often found guilty of cutting corners and failing to adhere to infection control policies, especially in nursing homes that are understaffed. Nursing homes are also responsible for hiring staff that are highly-qualified and able to identify these infections before they progress into more serious stages.
Your loved one is entitled to the right to reside in a skilled nursing facility that provides all the resources necessary for the best possible quality of life. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we possess a deep understanding of these rights and are dedicated to helping you obtain the rights to which your loved one is entitled. We will fight with vigor and relentlessness, and take your case to trial, if necessary, until a just resolution is reached. If your loved one is suffering from infections and you feel that these infections are being caused by a lack of infection prevention policies or understaffing in his or her skilled nursing facility, please contact us today for a free consultation. If for any reason you are unable to come in to our office, we will come to your home to meet with you and your loved one.
