Industry is located in the San Gabriel Valley. The city was appropriately named Industry because of the many businesses and jobs that are available within the city. According to the 2010 census, the city offered 2,500 business and 80,000 jobs, but only had a population of 219. As a part of Los Angeles County, Industry is in relatively close proximity to Hollywood, and many of the cities landmarks have been used for filming. The Puente Hills Mall was used in the Back to the Future series and an Ikea that has since been demolished was used in the filming of Mr. and Mrs. Smith. In fact, a McDonalds in the city has been designated specifically for filming movies and commercials. The city also features the Vineland Drive-In movie theater, one of the few that remain in Southern California.

One frequently encountered problem in nursing homes is infection prevention and control. Some common infections include Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Clostridium difficile (C. difficile), sepsis, and scabies. Because residents live in such close quarters, it is extremely important for the nursing home to implement effective infection control measures. One of the most effective ways to prevent the spread of infection is by washing hands. In fact, in a recent survey of healthcare facilities, one of the categories considered to be an indicator of quality was hand hygiene among the nursing staff. Unfortunately, many nurses either overlook or ignore the importance of washing their hands regularly before dealing with individual patients. When nursing homes are understaffed, it is even more likely that nurses will forgo important infection prevention measures like hand washing.

While these infections alone can lead to severe consequences if left untreated, they become even more dangerous when the patient has open wounds, such as pressure ulcers, which can act as an entry point for bacteria. Since pressure ulcers and infections are both highly preventable and can be treated effectively if assessed early, it is important for you to find a nursing home with the resources to provide your loved one with proper care. With respect to pressure ulcer prevention, the nursing home staff needs to regularly turn those patients who cannot move on their own.

Please make sure that your loved one's skilled nursing facility is equipped to carry out the appropriate preventative measures and treatments for both infections and pressure ulcers. If you feel that your loved one's nursing home is not providing the care that your loved one requires, please contact us today to see how we can help.

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
