Welcome to the Anaheim website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. We sincerely hope that this website will increase your knowledge on the dangers of nursing home neglect and elder abuse.
The city of Anaheim is a major tourist attraction because it is home to the world-famous theme park Disneyland, as well as the Anaheim Convention Center, the Honda Center, and Angels Stadium. Beyond being a popular vacation destination, Anaheim is also a largely residential area, as it is home to approximately 336,255 people, according to the 2010 census. It is currently the largest city in Orange County and is continuing to grow at a rapid pace. With fourteen skilled nursing facilities to choose from, it is important to understand the various issues that are prevalent among nursing homes today in order to choose which one is best-suited for you or your loved one.
Pressure sores are a common occurrence among the elderly, especially those who reside in assisted living facilities. These are similar to open wounds and occur when an individual is immobile for extended periods of time, putting too much pressure on one specific area of the body. Because pressure sores are preventable through practices such as exercising to maintain mobility, repositioning, and use of special pillows and mattresses, they usually occur as a direct result of inadequate staffing. Unfortunately, there are many other commonly occurring infections that plague nursing homes. Therefore, it is very necessary that you gain awareness on them in order to learn how to best prevent yourself or your loved one from contracting an infection.
Additionally, it is of utmost importance that you review other widespread issues that negatively impact quality of care in nursing homes, such as dehydration and malnutrition, incontinence, and falls so that you can choose the skilled nursing facility that is best for you. As with pressure sores, the prevention of all the conditions mentioned above can always be prevented by adequate staffing. Here at the Law Offices or Ben Yeroushalmi, we believe that it is completely unacceptable for any individual to suffer from ailments that are avoidable through the adequate staffing of well-trained and highly-qualified nurses. If you or a loved one is suffering as a direct result of a lack of quality staff at a skilled nursing facility, contact us today for a free consultation. If you are unable to come into our office, we will gladly come to your home to meet with you. We will proceed to review your case and relentlessly fight for your rights, even if it requires taking your case to trial.
