There are many reasons that medications are used in skilled nursing facilities, but making the staff's job easier should not be one of them. Research shows that twenty percent of people living in nursing homes experience agitation, which can also appear as irritability, apathy, or depression. Agitation and delirium sometimes go hand in hand, and are often the consequence of polypharmacy, which is the excessive use of multiple prescribed drugs simultaneously. It is only logical that if the problem is too many drugs, the answer should not be "more drugs." Specialists even confirm that the best treatment for agitation is behavioral, not chemical. Pain is also a major cause of agitation. Therefore, it is very important for nursing homes to have high-quality pain management programs such as music therapy, dance therapy, and pet therapy. That's why it is so important you ensure your loved one's care facility is adequately staffed and that your loved one is being properly cared for by knowledgeable and well trained employees. Unfortunately, some nursing homes do not have your loved one's best interest at heart. They use drugs to chemically restrain residents who suffer from agitation in order to make them easier to handle. Not only is this detrimental to your loved one's physical and mental well-being, but it is a direct violation of his or her Patients' Rights.

If your loved one resides in a nursing home and, you believe he or she is being abused with chemical restraint, contact us today to see how we can help. We will advocate on your behalf, saving you the frustration and stress of handling the problem alone.

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

Mr Yeroushalmi was our lawyer for a case involving my mother who was a victim of elderly abuse while in a nursing home. He and his team did an excellent job.
