Welcome to the Claremont 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.

Claremont, California is a small town located at the base of the San Gabriel Mountains. It is sometimes nicknamed the "City of Trees and PhD's" because it features thick forestry and is noted for several institutions for higher education. These colleges are all part of one consortium, known as the Claremont Colleges, and includes Pomona College, Claremont Graduate University, Scripps College, Claremont McKenna College, Harvey Mudd College, Pitzer College, and Keck Graduate Institute. As of the 2010 U.S. Census, Claremont's population was 34,926. Despite the fact that it is a small college town, Claremont as 3 skilled nursing facilities.

Even in the finest communities, skilled nursing facilities have problems. When those problems exceed legal boundaries, we at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are here to help you. For instance, the amount of time a Registered Nurse (RN) is able to spend with each patient in a nursing home has a direct effect on his or her well being and the avoidance of injuries or suffering. Because RNs influence the quality of nursing homes by providing their expertise in direct care and evaluation, nursing homes' workforce policy should focus on maintaining the recommended staffing level of one RN for every 32 long-stay residents. This also means 45 minutes per resident per day. Studies show that patients who receive at least 30 to 40 minutes per day of a Registered Nurse's time (taken in 10-minute increments) are far less likely to suffer from pressure sores, urinary tract infections, hospitalization, weight loss, and loss of ability to perform activities of daily living. Section 483.25 of Title 42 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations states that each nursing home resident must receive the necessary care and services to attain and maintain the highest practicable physical, mental and psychosocial well-being. Registered Nurses help make that happen.

If you feel your loved one has been injured in a nursing home as a result of not receiving the proper attention from skilled nurses, such as failing to provide adequate care to prevent or treat pressure ulcers, please contact us today so that we can help protect your loved one's best interests and hold the responsible parties accountable.

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
