The city of La Habra is in Orange County, bordered by Fullerton and Brea. Prior to its founding, the area that now makes up La Habra served as a ranch in Alta California, home to herds of cattle and horses. In the 1860s it was purchased by Abel Stearns, a wealthy ranch owner, before its founding in 1896. It was then incorporated as a city in 1925 with a population of 3,000 people. In the early days of the city, La Habra was known as one of the largest avocado centers in Southern California. La Habra received the All-America City award in 1974 in part for its commitment to civic engagement. During that time La Habra was home to over 100 service clubs and civic organizations. Today, the city continues to pride itself in its civic organizations. By 2010 La Habra’s population had grown to about 60,239 residents with about 23% of its population aged between 45 to 64 years old and about 11% aged 65 years or older. Currently, the city has two nursing homes and three assisted living facilities.

Residents of nursing homes are often unable to fully depend on themselves for daily activities. Many are bed ridden or require assistance to shower and perform daily tasks. An issue that arises when patients lack this type of independence are pressure ulcers, or pressure sores. These pressure ulcers develop from lack of movement, for example being in bed for a long period. These ulcers develop through four stages, at stage IV they become so deep that they cause damage to the muscles, bones, joints and tendons. Patients who are at an understaffed nursing home or assisted living facility run the risk of developing pressure ulcers because of the lack of attention given to each individual. Without the appropriate staff numbers, most of these patients do not get turned as often as they should be and pressure ulcers begin to emerge on their back or hips. Similarly, the same issue of understaffing creates other risks for patients such as an increased chance of falling while unattended.

When skilled nursing facilities are understaffed and neglect patients’ rights they are doing an injustice to those whom should be watched over with extra care. If you or a loved one have developed a pressure ulcer while residing at a Skilled Nursing Facility, and you believe this to be a result of Nursing Home Neglect, please contact us as soon as possible for a free consultation. If you cannot come to our office, we will come to you.

Client Reviews
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.

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
