Hawaiian Gardens, California

Welcome to the Hawaiian Gardens website for Los Angeles elder abuse lawyer Ben Yeroushalmi. As specialists in nursing home abuse litigation, the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi have created this webpage to spread awareness about the dangers of nursing home neglect and to provide you with legal support if you or a loved one has been victim to such abuses.

Hawaiian Gardens is the smallest city in the county, about one mile square, and was incorporated on April 9, 1964. The city was named for a 1920s refreshment stand, which was decorated with palm fronds and bamboo. It was the area's main landmark for years, and the name stuck as the small town grew and developed around it. As one of seven cities in Los Angeles County that allow casino gambling, more than $9.2 million--that's sixty-five percent--of the city's revenue comes from the Hawaiian Gardens Casino. As of the 2010 US Census, Hawaiian Garden's population was 14,254. Hawaiian Gardens has no Skilled Nursing Facilities, but you can search this website for one convenient to you.

No matter how long you or a loved one is planning to stay at a skilled nursing facility, extensive research is required in order to ensure that the facility can provide the care that you need. Even if you only plan to stay for a short amount of time, you are still at risk of abuse and neglect. Like any other resident, the level of staffing will directly correlate to the quality of care that you receive. Many facilities are chronically understaffed, significantly increasing the chances of errors. Although some of these errors may seem minor, many of them prove to be fatal.

Inadequate staffing can also lead to the development of pressure ulcers, which are otherwise preventable, as well as other avoidable injuries which are often fall-related. Sometimes, nurses even resort to the use of restraints, both physical and chemical, because facilities are so understaffed that they do not have time to provide each patient with the individualized care that he or she needs. However, this is a direct violation of Patients' Rights. The prevention of infections is also significantly less effective when facilities are understaffed.

Beyond examining the direct care staff, which includes Registered Nurses (RNs), Certified Nursing Assistants (CNAs), Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs), and nursing aides, you must also consider the indirect care staff. This type of staff includes dieticians and rehabilitation directors. Although often overlooked, indirect care staff, such as dieticians, are absolutely necessary to ensure that patients do not suffer from malnutrition or dehydration.

When the death of a patient is directly caused by a nursing home, the successors of the deceased can make a Wrongful Death claim. However, we sincerely hope that it does not come to this. If you even suspect that your loved one is suffering from nursing home neglect or elder abuse, please contact us immediately. In case you are unable to come to us, we will travel to your home to give you and your loved one 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
