Pasadena, California

Welcome to nursing home neglect attorney Ben Yeroushalmi's website serving the city of Pasadena. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we have created this site to help you understand what constitutes as elder abuse and what you can do if you believe your loved one is a victim. Every nursing home resident has rights to adequate care and a good quality of life. Unfortunately many residents in skilled nursing facilities are not receiving the care they deserve and are suffering from neglect and other injuries to their body and spirit.

The city of Pasadena was formed back in 1886, when the area was still dedicated to growing citrus fruit and grape vines. It expanded parallel to downtown Los Angeles as a holiday resort for those wishing to experience the mild winters of Southern California. Out of this tradition sprung the annual Tournament of Roses Parade on New Year's Day, where floats constructed entirely of flowers highlight the area's hospitable climate even at the height of winter. Accompanying the parade is the post-season football game held at the Rose Bowl, a designated National Historic Landmark. Pasadena is also the cultural center for the San Gabriel Valley, with shops, restaurants, theatres, galleries, and museums all centered around the historic Old Town. The city is also carries continues on with its moniker as the "Athens of the West"; Pasadena is home to some of the nation's top institutes of learning with the California Institute of Technology, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the Art Center College of Design. There are seventeen Skilled Nursing Facilities located in Pasadena.

If your loved one is staying in a nursing home, it is important that you understand their rights of care so that you can identify if the facility is not honoring them. Under California Health and Safety Code section 1430(b) all residents have to be provided with an adequate amount of care from trained nursing staff. Failure by the home to employ enough nursing staff is a violation of your loved one's rights and is actionable under the law. Understaffing is also very dangerous and can result in harm and injuries to those being care for. Without adequate staff to administer proper care, nursing home residents can develop pressure ulcers, become malnourished and dehydrated, and acquire dangerous infections such as methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Clostridium dificile.

Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi we believe that your loved one should not have to suffer the consequences of nursing home neglect. If you think that your loved one is a victim of elder abuse please contact us today. If you or your loved one is unable to come in to our offices for a free consultation, we will come to your home or hospital bed to meet with you and discuss your situation.

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
