Monrovia, California

Welcome to the Monrovia website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. This website is dedicated to providing the residents of Monrovia with useful information about the prevalence of abuse and neglect towards elderly residents in nursing homes. Our team of experienced elder abuse attorneys is at the forefront of nursing home abuse and neglect litigation, and is dedicated to protecting your loved one to ensure they receive the quality of care they deserve.

Monrovia is a city located in the San Gabriel Valley, and is a part of Los Angeles County. The city was incorporated in 1887, and before it became a bustling town, Monrovia used to be comprised of a small community of orange ranches. It is known to be the home of Upton Beall Sinclair, an American author who is known for writing the famous novel The Jungle. As of 2010, the census has reported that Monrovia has a population of 36,590 people. There is currently one skilled nursing facility located within Monrovia. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Monrovia as well.

If your elderly loved one requires residence in a nursing home, they will be entrusting their well-being and care in the hands of nursing home staff. Nursing homes are required by law to create a healthy and secure environment for all their residents, as required by the Patients’ Bill of Rights. Therefore, in order to comply with their obligations, facilities must be hygienic and each facility must have an adequate number of trained nursing staff to care for their residents.

Unfortunately, nursing facilities are commonly understaffed, thus resulting in the administration of substandard care, compromising the health and well-being of your loved one. For example, the development of pressure ulcers or bedsores may be indicative of the fact that your loved one is not receiving adequate and individualized care. Pressure ulcers are preventable if the facility is adequately staffed so that staff members are present to move a patient who is at risk throughout the day. These movements will help take pressure off of the patient’s skin, preventing the development of such sores. Additionally, if a facility is understaffed, your loved one may also have a higher risk of falling and sustaining considerable injury. However, such injuries are completely avoidable. Therefore, nursing facilities must ensure they have adequate staffing to supervise their residents, assist them with their needs, and prevent avoidable injuries from occurring.

Your loved one’s rights are protected by the law, and should be respected by nursing facilities entrusted with their care. Our passionate team of attorneys at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi believes your loved one deserves the highest quality care, and we will help you fight for your loved one if their rights have been violated by a nursing home facility. We encourage us to contact us today for a free consultation.

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
