Compton, California

Welcome to the Compton website for nursing home abuse attorney Ben Yeroushalmi. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we fight relentlessly for the rights of nursing home neglect victims. This website has been created to inform your community of the many abuses that occur in Los Angeles skilled nursing facilities.

The city of Compton, incorporated in 1888, is one of the oldest cities in Los Angeles County. The city was originally named Gibsonville after an original owners of the land, but was eventually renamed Compton. During its early history, the city of Compton was extremely isolated from other settlements, which posed many challenges to the original settlers. This led the inhabitants of early Compton to begin developing it into the city it is today. The city of Compton has one skilled nursing facility.

One of the first issues that should come to mind when you are choosing a nursing home is staffing. Many nursing homes today either have profit motives or a lack of funding that prevents them from adequately staffing their facilities. When you consider staffing, you must look beyond the physical numbers of individuals that are employed by the facility and assess the distribution of staffing of different levels of nurses. While nursing aides carry out most of the day-to-day direct care, Registered Nurses (RNs) and Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) are the nurses that are authorized to give assessments and orders regarding the care of a patient.

Recent studies have shown that even when Los Angeles nursing homes appear to be fully staffed, they often still display low to inadequate levels of RNs. Although every team member in a nursing home, including nursing aides, dieticians, and administrators, plays an important role and contributes in some way to the care of each patient, a lack of direct care from RNs has been correlated to higher numbers of pressure ulcers. This may be due to the fact that RNs are the most qualified to give accurate assessments of the level of severity of a pressure ulcer and to order treatments and implement strategies to prevent them from developing.

Each patient needs and deserves individual attention from every staff member. If your loved one's nursing home is lacking in any type of staff, he or she is being affected by inadequate staffing. Contact us today if you feel that this is the case, and we will help you and your loved one obtain the rights to which he or she is entitled.

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
