Welcome to the Newport Beach nursing home neglect attorney website, provided by our team of dedicated elderly abuse lawyers at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi.

Newport Beach, an affluent city located in Orange County, was incorporated into California in 1906. As of 2010, the population was 85, 186. The name of the city was coined by ranch owners in the Lower Bay around 1871 after it was first established as a trading point. In 1905, the city began to develop further as Pacific Electric Railway chose Newport as a southern terminal in order to connect the beach to downtown Los Angeles. Today, Newport Beach is a popular destination for boating activities and entertainment located at Newport Harbor. Also located nearby is Fashion Island, an upscale open-air lifestyle center known for its shops and restaurants. There are three Skilled Nursing Facilities located within the city.

Even though the title of ‘Skilled Nursing Facilities’ suggests that there is currently a standard of education or rules amongst the various facilities, that is sadly not the case. In a recent article published by the Journal of the American Medical Directors Association (JAMDA), research showed that nursing facilities and their workers often lack a standardized means to clearly categorize the stage of a pressure ulcer, which occur when constant pressure causes the affected skin tissue to die. Pressure ulcers are easily preventable but are still a very common occurrence on nursing home patients. In Section 483.30 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, it is stated that nursing facilities must be able to provide sufficient nursing staff that are able to provide the highest possible level of care to every resident.

At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we have had extensive experience with pressure ulcers in relation to elder abuse cases. Pressure ulcers are definitely avoidable, but once an ulcer develops it is very hard to treat and cure. The development or aggravation of a pressure ulcer is often the sign of elder neglect or abuse within a nursing home. If you believe your loved one has suffered a pressure ulcer while being cared for at a nursing facility, please contact us for a free consultation. The inability of a nursing home to judge the stage of a pressure ulcer or prevent and treat the sore is condemnable and should be addressed as soon as possible.

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
