Since the 1920s, Culver City has been a major center for movie and television production. Tomas Ince built the first film studio in Culver City in 1918. Soon after, Metro Goldwyn Mayer built a studio there, on the site that today is Sony Pictures Entertainment. Over the years, many studios and production companies have come and gone, but Culver City remains a firm base of film and television production. As of the 2010 census, Culver City had a population of 38,883. Culver City has 3 Skilled Nursing Facilities.

Often times, nursing home patients are unfamiliar with the rights to which they are entitled. Healthcare facilities take advantage of this unawareness and abuse their patients. For example, nurses who work in facilities that are understaffed often use physical restraints on their patients. Because they do not have the time to provide those patients who are more susceptible to falls with proper assistance and supervision, nurses often justify the use of restraints by claiming that they enhance safety for patients, as well as everyone around them. The truth is, however, that physical restraints actually lead to a decline in mobility and increase in independence. According to a recent study, over time, patients who were subject to restraints experienced a loss in ability to perform activities of daily living that was not experienced by residents who underwent alternative treatments.

Instead of restraining patients who are susceptible to falls, caregivers need to resolve this problem by first determining its root cause. Usually, nursing home residents who fall and are at risk of injury do so because they are suffering from a loss of muscle strength. A recent study actually discusses a new exercise that has been discovered to improve muscle strength and eventually decrease the risk of falls among the elderly. In addition to other similar exercises, these are the only treatments that your loved one should ever have to undergo.

By law, physical restraints may only be issued for medical purposes, and even then, every patient has the right to refuse any and all types of treatment, including the use of restraints. Furthermore, the use of physical restraints is actually directly linked to isolation, depression, incontinence, and the development of pressure sores.

Skilled nursing facilities are putting your loved one's life at risk for their own convenience. This is a direct violation of your loved one's rights and an egregious act of elder abuse and nursing home neglect. If you or your loved one has been a victim, contact us today for a free consultation. Under the circumstances that you are unable to come in to our office, we will gladly travel to your home to meet with you and your loved one.

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
