Infection prevention and control is a prevalent problem in nursing homes. Infections that older adults are often vulnerable to include Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), sepsis, and scabies. Due to residents living in such close proximity with each other, nursing homes must implement effective infection control standards to prevent the spread of infection. One of the most effective ways to prevent infection is by washing hands. A recent survey of healthcare facilities revealed that one of the key categories indicating quality was hand hygiene among nursing staff. Washing one’s hands may sound easy enough, but research has shown that far too many nurses disregard the importance of washing their hands before dealing with each individual patient. Inadequate staffing levels in nursing homes may even cause nurses to be even more likely to overlook important infection prevention measures like hand washing.

These infections alone can lead to serious consequences if left untreated. They become even more hazardous when the patient suffers from open wounds, such as bedsores, that make the patient easily susceptible to contracting bacteria. Nursing homes must ensure that they have the resources to provide your loved one with quality care, appropriately managing bedsores and infections that are both preventable and can be treated effectively if assessed early. In regards to bedsore prevention, nursing home staff must turn those patients regularly if they cannot do so on their own.

Your loved one’s skilled nursing facility must be equipped to perform proper preventative measures and treatments for infections and bedsores. If you believe that your loved one is suffering or has suffered due to inadequate care provided by a nursing home, contact us today for a free consultation.

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

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
