Lancaster, California

Welcome to the Lancaster website for nursing home neglect attorney Ben Yeroushalmi. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we are dedicated to protecting the rights of nursing home residents. We hope that by making your community aware of your rights as patients, you and your loved one may avoid the pain and suffering that is evoked by nursing home abuse and neglect. We would also like to emphasize the importance of taking action against nursing homes that fail to meet their obligations to you or your loved one as residents.

Incorporated in 1977 and located in the high desert of northern Los Angeles County, Lancaster is home to 156,633 people (as of the 2010 census), making it the largest city on the California side of the Mojave Desert. Lancaster is also home to the Aerospace Walk of Honor, the Antelope Valley College and a variation of public and private K-12 schools. It is also listed by the U.S. News & World Report as one of the best places to retire in the United States. Lancaster currently has four Skilled Nursing Facilities.

Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we understand that choosing the right nursing home for you or your loved one is very difficult. When choosing a nursing home, it is important to ensure that the nursing home is providing the highest standard of professional care. Unfortunately, many nursing homes are often understaffed and do not have the time to give individual and direct care to residents. Rather than providing individual care to ensure safety from falls, understaffed nursing homes often use physical restraints on their residents. Nurses will sometimes justify the use of physical restraints by claiming that they enhance the safety of the residents and as well as other residents around them. However, the use of physical restraints is both detrimental to the patient's physical and mental well-being and a violation of Patient's rights. Rather than using physical constraints, the facility should be providing individual care to prevent falls and other accidents.

Physical restraints are not only a violation of a patient's rights, but they also lead to pressure sores as the patient will often not be allowed to move for extremely long periods of time. Pressure sores are easily preventable, and it is simply inexcusable that patients develop pressure sores due to understaffing and neglect of the present staff. Nursing homes need to ensure firstly that they have enough staff hired and that secondly their staff is educated with the proper safety precautions to prevent falls and pressure sores.

If your loved one has suffered pressure sores or other ailments due to physical restraints, please contact us today to see how we can help your loved one receive the care to which he or she is entitled. If a nursing home should fail to provide you or your loved one with that standard of care, it is your personal right to contest--and our privilege to protect you. If you cannot come in to our office for your free consultation, we will gladly 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
