Welcome to the city of Firebaugh website for elder abuse neglect law firm Yeroushalmi Law. Far too often, long-term care facilities take advantage of and abuse their vulnerable older adult patients. Yeroushalmi Law strives to improve the quality of life for older adults and is dedicated to fighting such deplorable crimes.
Known as the “Hub of the Great West Side,” Firebaugh produces 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, Firebaugh easily attracts manufacturing, packing, and processing corporations seeking to obtain a skilled, energetic workforce and Enterprise Zone tax credits.
The quality of care for older adult residents of long-term care facilities 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. Some nursing homes may take advantage of the power to regulate their own level of staff, which results in 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 for pressure ulcers, frailty, and poor hygiene.
If you or your loved one has acquired harm or injury because of a long-term care facility’s actions, contact us at Yeroushalmi Law for a free consultation. We believe that all responsible parties should be held accountable for their egregious actions and will passionately protect the best interests of you and your loved one.
