Welcome to the Firebaugh website for elder abuse attorney Ben Yeroushalmi. Far too often, long-term care facilities take advantage of and abuse their vulnerable older adult patients. The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi strive to improve the quality of life for older adults and are dedicated to fighting such deplorable crimes.
Known as the “Hub of the Great West Side”, the City of Firebaugh is rich in agriculture, producing major crops that include fruits, vegetables, nuts, and fiber crops. Firebaugh has also experienced new developments in manufacturing, packing, and processing plants. Aimed at promoting economic diversity, along with maintaining its strong agricultural reputation, Firebaugh has become an attractive city for manufacturing, packing, and processing corporations seeking to obtain a skilled, energetic workforce and Enterprise Zone tax credits.
The quality of care older adult residents of long-term care facilities receive has a significant influence on their well-being and quality of life. Although long-term care facilities promise to ensure that their residents receive quality care at all times, this promise is often broken due to inadequate staffing levels. Consequently, frail and vulnerable older adults who need help in meeting their basic needs are forced to suffer. The current federal standards regarding staffing levels are vague and do not provide strict guidelines or regulations. The result of nursing homes having the power to regulate their own level of staff has been a deficient quality of care.
Studies have shown that inadequate staffing in nursing homes leads to increased hospitalizations, diminished functioning to perform activities of daily living, and higher risk of pressure ulcers, frailty, and poor hygiene.
