Campbell is considered a suburb of San Jose and part of the Silicon Valley, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Even though the city is not known for its technological hub, as many of its neighbors, it is the original home of eBay as well as its creator Pierre Omidyar. It also received national notoriety when its Pruneyard Shopping Center was involved in a legal suit that made it all the way to the Supreme Court. The suit concerned the first amendment and its protection of free speech and to what degree that protection should apply to the states. Pruneyard Shopping Center lost and now it is legal for people to solicit signatures or money for a cause even though shopping centers are still technically considered private property. There are 2 Skilled Nursing Facilities currently located in Campbell.

The problem of understaffing is a serious issue in Skilled Nursing Facilities and it unfortunately occurs all too often in nursing homes these days. The economic pressure of running a cutting edge and responsive facility sometimes leads to a culture of cost-saving whenever possible. Understaffing the facility is one way that Nursing Homes try to maximize their workload and minimize their costs. However, even though this may make sense in a calculating cost-benefit analysis, it has serious ethical and practical implications when dealing with residents.

Under California law, Nursing Homes are required to provide 3.2 hours of care per patient per day by direct caregivers such as registered nurses, licensed vocational nurses, and cardiac vascular nurses. This is just the minimum needed to satisfy regulations and there is usually a need to provide more care to achieve the quality of care standards that we expect from Skilled Nursing Facilities. Unfortunately, even that minimum is sometimes not reached due to cutbacks in staff or hours. This may save the facility money, but it also endangers the health and safety of the residents. The residents of a Nursing Facility that is understaffed are at risk of encountering a myriad of preventable injuries such as falls, pressure ulcer, and infections. Any of these injuries can prove to be fatal; therefore, there is no excuse for a Nursing Home to be understaffed.

The problem in understaffing facilities is widespread and largely ignored. The reason for this is because most administrators in the offending facilities are either ignorant to the problem or they simply think that the benefits outweigh the risks. This kind of abhorrent irresponsibility should be reprimanded and there is legal action that one can take against the administrators and management of these facilities if they are suspected of neglect and abuse. Our law firm specializes in the kind of legal action that brings these people to justice and makes them accountable for their actions. Our team of aggressive litigators will ensure that you and your loved ones will get the most zealous representation possible under the law. Call us today for a free consultation.

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.

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
