Glendora, California

Welcome to the Glendora website for elder abuse attorneys in Los Angeles. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we specialize in nursing home abuse litigation. We have made it our mission to end the suffering of the elderly community. Despite their entitlement to certain rights, the elderly are often abused and taken advantage of in Skilled Nursing Facilities. With this website, our goal is to make you aware of common abuses that occur in nursing homes and to outline the rights that your loved has as a patient.

Glendora is a Los Angeles County municipality, located 23 miles east of downtown. Glendora homes range from early 20th century bungalows through all sizes up to grand secluded estates with sweeping views across the San Gabriel Valley to downtown Los Angeles. Modern Glendora was founded on April 1, 1887 by George Dexter Whitcomb, who named Glendora by combining his wife's name, "Leadora" with the word "glen" where he felt his home sat. Notable Glendora residents include founder George Dexter Whitcomb, motivational speaker Tony Robbins, and actress Soleil Moon Frye. As of the 2010 census, the population of Glendora was 50,073. Glendora is home to 5 Skilled Nursing Facilities.

If you have a loved one in any of these facilities, we are here to help you. We ardently believe that each and every resident at a skilled nursing facility is due the highest possible quality of life. Understaffing, in any area, leads to substandard care, which leads to preventable injuries. Whether or not nursing homes recognize inadequate staffing as a form of abuse, the fact of the matter is that nursing home neglect is a direct cause of suffering for patients and can sometimes even lead to death.

The amount of time a Registered Nurse (RN) is able to spend with each patient in a nursing home has a direct effect on their well being and the avoidance of injuries or suffering. Because RNs influence the quality of nursing homes by providing their expertise in direct care and evaluation, a nursing homes' workforce policy should focus on maintaining the recommended staffing level of one RN for every 32 long-stay residents. Be careful not to confuse RNs with Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs). Although well-qualified in their own right, CNAs work below RNs and are not authorized to directly treat patients, operate advanced equipment, or administer medication. Overall, 3.2 nursing hours per patient per day is not only recommended, but also required by law. These hours can be satisfied by both CNAs and RNs. Studies show that patients who receive this minimum of direct care time are far less likely to suffer from pressure sores, urinary tract infections, hospitalization, weight loss, and deterioration in the ability to perform activities of daily living.

If you feel your loved one has been injured in a nursing home as a result of not receiving the proper attention from skilled nurses, please contact us today so that we can help protect your loved one's best interests and hold the responsible parties accountable. If you cannot come to us, we will come to your home or hospital bed to meet with you and provide you with 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

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
