This page has been specially designed to inform and educate the residents of Monterey Park on your and your loved ones’ personal rights when selecting or residing in a nursing home. The law mandates that nursing homes must adhere to a specific standard of care. When it is not followed, patients are put at risk of injury or death. Here at our offices, we are dedicated to protecting you and your loved ones from nursing home abuse or neglect and ensuring the quality of life and care that you deserve.

Monterey Park lies on the western edge of San Gabriel Valley, ten miles east of downtown Los Angeles. In 1916, it voted itself into cityhood as a response to the plans of neighboring cities Pasadena, South Pasadena, and Alhambra to develop a sewage treatment facility in the area. Since the 1970s, Monterey Park and the rest of western San Gabriel Valley have been experiencing a large influx of Asian Americans. They were mostly educated and wealthy, dominating local businesses and establishing “Downtown Monterey Park”, a mainly-Chinese business district with. Today, Monterey Park contains the highest concentration of Chinese Americans in any American city. Monterey Park is home to East Los Angeles College, which serves fourteen nearby communities and is the largest campus in the Los Angeles Community College District. There are two nursing home facilities in Monterey Park, and dozens more in neighboring cities.

When selecting a nursing home, it is crucial to choose one that will treat your or your loved one with the respect and care you deserve. While they may differ in size, price, or location, all must adhere to a strict standard of care. Section 483.30 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations requires all skilled nursing facilities to provide sufficient nursing staff and adequate care to each resident. Additionally, nursing homes must provide at least 3.2 nursing hours per patient per day, and more if necessary. Although many nursing homes employ a large amount of workers, they may be understaffed. Understaffing includes not only a lack of staff, but a lack of training, leading to unqualified nurses and aides who cannot sufficiently provide care. This in turn jeopardizes the patients’ well-beings and puts them at higher risk of injury, disease, and death.

Unfortunately, understaffing in nursery homes occurs commonly and harms its elderly residents. If you feel that you or your loved ones are in a situation like this, please contact us for a free consultation. At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we firmly believe that all residents at nursing homes should be treated fairly and with care at a place that is meant to provide such services to them.

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
