Baldwin Park, California

Welcome to the Baldwin Park website for nursing home neglect and elder abuse. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, our team of nursing home abuse lawyers is dedicated to increasing your knowledge on matters that involve nursing home abuse and helping you fight for your rights if you find that your loved one is a victim.

Baldwin Park is located in the San Gabriel Valley. Around the turn of the twentieth century, after going through a variety of name changes, Baldwin Park was named after Elias J. "Lucky" Baldwin. In 1956 Baldwin Park became the 47th incorporated city in the county of Los Angeles. As of the 2010 census, Baldwin Park's population was 75,390. Baldwin Park is home to the first In-N-Out burger stand, which opened in 1948. Additionally, the In-N-Out University and company store, as well as the company's only meatpacking plant are all located in close proximity within the city. Baldwin Park is currently aiming to stimulate its economy and is reaching this goal through six different Project Redevelopment Areas. One such project involves the development of high-quality senior housing. Besides this new addition to senior living options, Baldwin Park is home to 4 Skilled Nursing Facilities .

At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we specialize in Elder Abuse and Nursing Home Negligence cases. We ardently believe that every human being is entitled to the highest standard of care while in residence at a skilled nursing facility. The elderly are at a higher risk of dehydration than most of us. Dehydration can lead to lethargy, confusion, falls, stroke and ultimately death. The staff of skilled nursing facilities should know this, and many other things about the special needs and vulnerabilities of the elderly. When a loved one in a nursing home is so dehydrated that it contributes to his or her death, the heirs may choose to bring a Wrongful Death claim against the nursing home and its operators. Nothing can ever truly recompense you for the loss of your loved one. Nevertheless, compensation can include, but is not limited to, damages for loss of society, comfort, care and protection.

Malnutrition is a similar problem which can lead to many complications, such as pressure ulcers and infections. Section 483.35 of Title 42 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations says that nursing homes have to provide meals that are not only nourishing and meet any special dietary needs the resident might have, but are also appealing to the senses and arrive hot if they're supposed to be hot or cold if they're supposed to be cold. The facility must employ a qualified dietician and enough staff to assist any residents who cannot feed themselves, even if that means a one to one, patient to staff ratio.

When choosing a nursing home for your loved one, we highly recommend that you visit the facility during meal times. Using this strategy, you will be able to assess the true quality of the dietician and the nurses by observing the amount of attention that they provide to your loved one. If possible, it is also a good idea to sample the food of the residents, so that you can assess the quality and nutritional value of the food your loved one will be eating. Make sure to visit during different mealtimes, as nursing homes are usually sufficiently staffed during the daytime, but in the evenings, during dinner, they tend to be understaffed.

If you believe you or your loved one suffered or is suffering from dehydration or malnutrition due to their facility's neglect, please contact us today. We at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are eager to determine whether your loved one was subjected to such Neglect, which is a form of Elder Abuse, and we will zealously fight to get you and your loved ones the compensation you deserve. We will advocate on your behalf, saving you the frustration and stress of handling the problem alone.

Contact us today for a free consultation. If you cannot come to us, we will come to your home or hospital bed to meet with you or your loved ones.

Client Reviews
Excellent staff and the epitome of genuine, honest, and beyond helpful. I was lost and running out of time until I found Yeroushalmi law office. I am beyond grateful and had the pleasure of working with such amazing people who look out for your best interest. Anonymous review
Ben Yeroushalmi accepted my case with much understanding and patience. He went above and beyond with the defense lawyers to reach a fair settlement. He explained the complete case process (as I had never filed a case with anyone) Ben kept my sister and I notified of every email or correspondence he had with the opposing council. Gloria
Ben is an outstanding litigator, and human being. He took on our case, as if it was his own. He paid close attention to details. His guidance was invaluable. He was very clear and concise, in explaining all potential scenarios to us. He spoke eloquently, and straight to the point at all times. Ben is a true professional, with a passion for his craft. Anonymous review
I had a heartfelt and memorable experience with Ben , very genuine and I can tell he loves what he does. His determination shows beautifully and it is amazing. In my opinion it is very rare you find people who love what they're doing and it shows. Not wanting to get religious on an review but, God introduced me to Ben for a reason. Summer
Ben was wonderful. He took our case when no one else was interested or wanted way to much money. We would highly recommend Ben because he really listens and takes your situation into consideration. We settled our case and we were only unhappy with one thing and that was the confidentiality clause but that was not Ben's fault it came with the deal. June
