Cypress, California

Welcome to the Cypress website for Orange County nursing home abuse lawyer Ben Yeroushalmi. This page has been created in order to help increase your awareness of the types of abuse and neglect that occur on a daily basis in skilled nursing facilities, as well as to help you gain a deeper understanding of what a high quality of care entails.

For most of its history, the city of Cypress has been known for its production of dairy. In fact, until 1957, it was known as "Dairy City" and had a cow population that exceeded its human population. Today, however, with an expanding population, recorded at 47,802, as of the 2010 census, Cypress is the home to a Senior Center that provides recreational activities for the elderly. Although there are no skilled nursing facilities located within the city, you can easily find one in close proximity by using this website.

A direct form of elder abuse is the use of restraints in nursing homes to subdue patients. By law, restraints must only be used for medical purposes, and even then, patients still have the right to forgo treatment. Unfortunately, many individuals fail to realize that their loved ones are being abused because caregivers justify the use of restraints by claiming that they promote the safety of patients. However, studies have shown that the use of physical restraints does not decrease the risk of falls in nursing homes and actually just leads to more health problems. Another type of restraint is chemical, the use of drugs, usually antipsychotics, to subdue patients. Misusing drugs in such a way is extremely dangerous and doubles the chances of death in patients with dementia, according to one study.

If your loved one is being restrained, we hope that after reading this webpage, you understand that under no circumstances is this an acceptable practice. We encourage you to contact us today if you feel that you or your loved one may have been a victim of elder abuse. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we specialize in cases of nursing home abuse and neglect and will fight relentlessly to attain the rights to which you or your loved one are entitled. If for any reason you are unable to come in to our office, we will come to your home to meet with you or your loved one.

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
