Named after the sweeping vistas of the Santa Cruz Mountains, Mountain View is a technological hub of sorts. Located within Silicon Valley, it is home to some of the largest tech companies in the world including Symantec, Mozilla Foundation, Intuit and Google. However, this does not take away from its charming small town appeal, which is enhanced by its abundance of pedestrian friendly walkways and parks. It also shares the NASA Ames Research Center with nearby Sunnyvale and is home to The Computer History Museum, which holds one of the largest computer artifact collections in the world. Mountain View has 3 Skilled Nursing Facilities within one mile of each other.
Finding the right nursing home is a very important task for seniors and their loved ones. Nursing Home Neglect and Elder Abuses that occur in understaffed nursing homes pose a serious risk to the physical/mental health for you or your loved one. An inefficient or poorly managed nursing home can also lead to the residents’ loss of freedom, loss of mobility (which can lead to pressure ulcers), severe dehydration and malnutrition, falls, and even wrongful death. That is why one can never be too careful or selective in choosing the appropriate Skilled Nursing Facility for themselves or their loved ones. There are numerous websites on the internet that can help with your decision by providing detailed reviews and published inspection reports on these facilities. Some of the more informative web pages include Medicare.gov and California Advocated for Nursing Home Reform or CANHR.
Every resident of a Nursing Home has inherent rights that are enumerated and codified in The California Code of Regulations. As such they are enforceable by Section 1430 (b) of the California Health and Safety Code and the Skilled Nursing Facility may be liable for the violations of these rights. The Patients’ Rights include but are not limited to being free from physical and mental abuse; to be allowed privacy for visits by friends, family, clergy and social workers; and to receive proper nutrition and hydration while under the care of the facility.
A Nursing Home that routinely violates the Patient Rights of residents and takes away their individuality, freedom and dignity should not be operating unobstructed. At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, our skilled and dedicated attorneys have had years of experience in holding the violators of these abhorrent abuses responsible for their actions. We have aggressively pursued our client’s interests with the zeal and vigor necessary to aggressively litigate these suits and obtain favorable results for our clients. We don’t tolerate maltreatment and neglect and neither should you. Call us today for a free consultation.
