Hidden Hills, California

Welcome to the Hidden Hills Nursing Home Neglect website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. As experts in nursing home neglect and elder abuse litigation, we have created this website to make you aware of the obligations that skilled nursing facilities have towards their patients. The residents of all nursing homes are entitled to certain Patients' Rights and we are dedicated to advocating on your behalf if any of these rights have been violated.

Hidden Hills, although considered an incorporated city of Los Angeles County, is actually a gated community in the west San Fernando Valley. This small city is one of the most affluent in the United States. As the home of many celebrities today, the city, designed by A. E. Hanson, landscape architect and community developer, is extremely private. As of the 2010 census, the city had a population of 1,856. Although there are no skilled nursing facilities within the city's gates, you can search this website for one near your home.

If you have been faced with the decision to place a loved one in a nursing home, you've surely taken the time to first visit the facility and speak with some of the staff. Perhaps you've gotten a sense of the workload for which they are responsible and how happy they are in their positions. But it's impossible to know what goes on 24 hours a day when we're not looking, and often nursing home owners and operators make the unfortunate decision to place profits over people by cutting staff. Understaffing leads to substandard care, which can lead to injuries, abuse and even death. Both sufficient and qualified staffing are the essential components of a safe nursing home environment that not only prevents injuries to its residents, but actually improves their quality of life. Under California Health and Safety Code Section 1276.5, skilled nursing facilities are required to provide at least 3.2 nursing hours per patient, per day.

The nursing hours include only the hours of work performed by direct caregivers, including registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, nurse aides, and certified nursing assistants. In long-term care settings, especially nursing homes, certified aides, or non-licensed care providers (NLCPs), provide the majority of personal care to residents, including transfer, repositioning, and skin care that are necessary for pressure ulcer (pressure sore or bedsore) prevention. Early detection of stage one pressure ulcers and their appropriate management amongst different types of care staff are crucial for the well-being of nursing home residents. More developed pressure ulcers not only cause more pain but also slow recovery from a morbid condition and require prolonged hospital care. If you have a loved one in a Los Angeles nursing home, speak with the nursing staff and make sure they are appropriately trained to provide your loved one with the care that he or she needs.

If your loved one has suffered from pressure ulcers due to understaffing or any other form of neglect, please contact us today for a free consultation. If you are unable to come in to our offices, we will come to your home to meet with you or your loved one.

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
