Cerritos, California

Welcome to the Cerritos Nursing Home Neglect website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. We created this website to make you aware of the obligations that skilled nursing facilities have towards their patients and what your options are if the facility has failed to meet those obligations.

Incorporated on April 24, 1956, Cerritos was formerly known as Dairy Valley because of the preponderance of dairy farms in the area at that time. Cerritos was one of the first cities in Los Angeles County to build large retail zones, such as the Los Cerritos Center and the Cerritos Auto Square. Profits were reinvested by city leaders into public works projects and community services such as the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts, the Cerritos Millennium Library and the Cerritos Sculpture Gardens. At the 2010 US Census, the population was 49,041. Cerritos has no Skilled Nursing Facilities, but you can search this website for one convenient to you.

Even in the finest communities, nursing homes have problems. When those problems exceed legal boundaries, we at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are here to help you. Unfortunately, infections are quite common in skilled nursing facilities due to a number of risk factors. While nursing home residents are more susceptible to infectious diseases because of their increased age, weekend immune systems, and underlying chronic diseases, it is also more difficult to diagnose and treat them because of their age and fragility. Most common infectious diseases in nursing homes include urinary tract infections, skin and soft tissue infections such as pressure ulcers, infected vascular or diabetic foot ulcers, and gastrointestinal infections. According to a recent study, approximately 15% of all nursing homes in the U.S. received citations for deficient infection control from 2000 to 2007. Infection control and treatment is of course challenging for nursing home staff because of the increased workload associated with cleaning, disinfection, and sanitation of the environment and of the infected residents, but it is the law. Section 483.65 of Title 42 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations explains that nursing homes are required to establish and maintain infection control programs in order to provide a safe, sanitary and comfortable environment and to help prevent the development and transmission of disease and infection. Nursing homes need to ensure that their staff are educated in preventative measures, and trained to identify symptoms of infectious diseases and to follow infection control guidelines when an outbreak occurs.

If your loved one has suffered an infection in a skilled nursing facility, and you believe it was due to negligence, please contact us today. 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
