Montebello, California

Welcome to the Montebello website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. This website has been created to provide Montebello residents with information about nursing home abuse and neglect. As a team of experienced attorneys at the forefront of nursing home litigation, we will provide legal support for you or your loved one should you find that a nursing home has breached its obligations towards you.

Montebello is a city located in Los Angeles County, and means ‘beautiful mountain’ in Italian. It is the home to one of the largest and diverse school districts in Los Angeles County, and currently has 32 public schools served by the Montebello Unified School District, ranging from elementary school to adult school. According to the California Department of Finance, the approximate population of Montebello was 62,789 people in January 2011. There are currently two skilled nursing facilities located in Montebello. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Montebello as well.

When you or a loved one is admitted to a skilled nursing facility, you trust that they will provide high quality care during your most vulnerable of times. However, residents and their family members must be aware that nursing home neglect may occur in several ways. State and federal regulations require that a nursing home sufficiently staff their facility with people who are knowledgeable and sufficiently trained to address resident concerns quickly and efficiently. Unfortunately, a resident’s needs or concerns may not be addressed because the nursing home facility is understaffed, or inadequately trained. For example, falls are a common, yet preventable, nursing home injury. Nevertheless, many minor fall injuries may escalate to serious issues because a nursing home facility may fail to implement effective fall prevention strategies.

Some nursing homes have attempted to implement protective measures against falls to increase patient safety. These measures may include the installation of side railings, call lights, and engaging in proper assessment of patients to gauge their fall risk. Unfortunately, some nursing homes have also incorporated the use of physical restraints to prevent resident falls, as they lack adequate staff members to supervise and prevent falls from occuring. The application of physical restraints constitutes a violation of the Patient’s Bill of Rights, unless patient has consented to their use, and use is strictly limited to medical purposes.

If you or your loved one has suffered injury due to nursing home neglect, we encourage you to contact us today for a free consultation. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we believe that if a nursing home facility has failed to provide you or your loved one with the high quality care you deserve, they should be held accountable for their actions.

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
