Huntington Park, California

Welcome to the website for Huntington Park nursing home abuse attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. The purpose of this website is to discuss issues of elder abuse that are prevalent in nursing homes today and to assert our position, as elder abuse lawyers, against the occurrence of such heinous and egregious offenses.

Huntington Park, named for industrialist Henry Huntington, was incorporated in 1906 as a streetcar suburb for workers in the rapidly expanding industries to the southeast of downtown Los Angeles. Even today, approximately a third of Huntington Park's residents work at factories in nearby Vernon and Commerce. Bus services are provided by both the Los Angeles County Metropolitan Transportation Authority (Metro), and Huntington Park's own COMBI bus service. As of the 2010 census, Huntington Park had a total population of 58,114. Huntington Park is home to 1 Skilled Nursing Facility.

Nursing home abuse statistics show that even in the finest communities, skilled nursing facilities have problems. When those problems exceed legal boundaries, the elder abuse attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are here to help you.

If your loved one lives in a nursing home and has dementia, surely you worry about his or her quality of life. In order to determine quality of life in dementia patients, a study has shown that the patient's own assessment of his or her quality of life should be taken into consideration. Measuring quality of life is inherently subjective, and for residents with dementia, measuring quality of life is more complex because the residents' self-assessment may be affected by cognitive impairment, such as loss of memory and reasoning, and non-cognitive ailments, such as depression and psychosis. Because of these concerns, measuring quality of life for patients with dementia involves a consideration of the views of both the patients and proxies, including the family and nursing home staff. Quality of life connects directly to quality of care as it is defined by Section 483.25 of Title 42 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations which states that each resident of a skilled nursing facility must receive the necessary care and services to attain and maintain the highest practical physical, mental and psychosocial well-being. When this code is not followed, it is called nursing home neglect.

Unfortunately, some cases of pervasive nursing home abuse cases lead to the death of a resident, which may result in a Wrongful Death action. Often times, injuries and death suffered by residents of nursing homes are the result of a violation of the Patients' Bill of Rights, which every Skilled Nursing Facility in the State of California obligates itself to abide by in its admissions agreement. When a patient suffers from dementia, he or she may be less capable of monitoring his or her own quality of life and require more visits, calls and like supervision from family members, but that does not absolve the skilled nursing center from its responsibility to provide the best possible care to your loved one. And when they fail to do so, it is our privilege, as nursing home abuse attorneys, to step in and protect you, and to hold all culprits responsible for your avoidable suffering.

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. Anonymous review
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
