Long Beach, California

Welcome to the Long Beach website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. The purpose of this website is to educate your community about some of the challenges your loved one might face in a skilled nursing facility, in the hopes that he or she can avoid the pain and suffering that is evoked by nursing home abuse and neglect. If your loved one has already had the misfortune of being a victim of elder abuse, we encourage you to take action against the skilled nursing facilities responsible for inflicting this suffering.

The city of Long Beach is the 7th largest city in California and also contains one of the world's largest shipping ports. Located between downtown Los Angeles and San Diego, Long Beach is home to 462,257 people (as of 2010 census). Long Beach is also home to the RMS Queen Mary, the Aquarium of the Pacific, and 92 parks covering 3,100 acres throughout the city. Long Beach currently has 25 Skilled Nursing Facilities.

At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we understand the importance and stress of choosing a quality long-term healthcare facility for you or your loved one. When choosing a nursing home, it is important that the nursing home provide both mental and physical daily activities for their residents to engage in. Physical therapy can help residents regain muscle usage and reduce the likelihood of falls, while mental activities can alleviate depressive symptoms that many residents have concurrently with dementia and reduce dementia-related agitation.

It is also important to ensure that the nursing home is properly staffed to carry out these daily activities for their residents. If a nursing home is understaffed, they may choose to deal with health issues such as agitation, depression and weak muscles by improperly using physical or chemical restraints. While chemical restraints have been proven to directly aggravate dementia-related agitation, they have also been proven to lead to adverse drug reactions (ADRs), polypharmacy, and delirium. Physical restraints are commonly used on dementia patients who are combative. Both of these practices are unacceptable and direct violations of Patients' Rights.

If your loved one suffers from dementia and you feel that his or her nursing home is not providing proper care, it is crucial that you contact us immediately. Dementia is a degenerative disease that worsens with time. If your loved one's nursing home staff is failing to provide proper care for dementia, they may be accelerating the onset of the disease.

If you are unable to come in to our office, we will gladly visit you and your loved one at your home.

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
