Gilroy is a city that is located most south in the Santa Clara County. According to the United States 2010 Census, it had a population of 48, 821. Because garlic crops flourish in this city, the Gilroy Garlic Festival held every year is a big event. The festival features a variety of interesting foods with the main ingredient being garlic—garlic flavored ice cream and garlic French fries are just a few of their popular items. It is thus no surprise that Gilroy is also known as the “Garlic Capital of the World.” Mushrooms are also grown prevalently in this city.

In regards to Gilroy’s history, a Spanish explorer named Juan Bautista de Anza led a group of explorers through the Santa Clara Valley in 1776. The Mission San Juan Bautista was then established in 1797, near the Pajaro River.

Gilroy keeps a truly peaceful and pleasant residential environment, with beautiful, award-winning parks, an urban forest, and a golf course and various recreation programs. Gilroy also has one assisted living facility and one nursing home facility.

The number of older adults who suffer from chronic wounds located in the lower extremity area is continuously growing. These serious wounds can be deleterious and cause major health risks, while also increasing socioeconomic burden due to the subsequent high expenses of wound care, prolonged healing time, exacerbated complication rate and adverse effect on patients’ and loved ones’ quality of life. Additional consequences of chronic wounds are increased mortality and critical morbidity as a result of infection, diminished ability to perform activities of daily living, pain, and psychosocial problems. Clinicians who provide care to elderly residents in long-term care facilities must be well-trained to address and diagnose wounds, as well as properly manage their etiology. Venous leg ulcers, pressure ulcers, diabetic foot ulcers, and arterial ulcers are four of the most prevalent kinds of chronic wounds that older adults are effected by.

Recently, researchers have made significant advances in wound care. However, staff in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are often still failing to provide the best quality of care in this area.

According to the most updated statistics, an estimated 7 million elderly patients suffer from chronic wounds every year in the United States alone. Moreover, the prevalence of chronic wounds is taking a toll on the US healthcare system by increasing expenses to over $25 billion, annually.

Regardless of location, pressure ulcers are the most prevalent type of chronic wound among older adults. These types of wounds develop primarily in areas that are under high- and prolonged-pressure. Elderly residents, especially those living in long-term care facilities, are especially vulnerable to suffering from pressure ulcers. It is imperative that care staff in nursing homes and assisted living facilities are increase supervision and care for patients who are at risk of pressure ulcers.

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
