Welcome to the Pomona website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. As a team of experienced elder abuse attorneys, we have created this website to serve as a resource for Pomona residents seeking information about nursing home abuse and neglect within skilled nursing facilities. We are dedicated to protecting you and your loved ones from abuse and neglect within nursing homes, and seek to ensure that nursing home residents receive the quality of care and life that they deserve.
Pomona is located in Los Angeles County, neighboring San Gabriel Valley and the Inland Empire. According to the 2010 census, Pomona has a population of 149,058 people and is considered to be the seventh largest city within the county. The city is the site of several notable annual cultural events, including the Los Angeles County Fair and the Classic Car Show, both of which take place at the Fairplex each year. There are currently eleven skilled nursing facilities located in Pomona. Alternatively, there are home health care agencies in Pomona as well.
When placing a loved one in a nursing home, you will want to select a qualified nursing home facility that will administer high quality care. This is because the type of care the nursing home facility provides will impact the quality of life and well-being of your loved one. Therefore, in order to guard against instances of nursing home abuse or neglect, you will want to consider the deficiency record of a nursing home facility. The Department of Health and Human Services is responsible for conducting inspections of nursing home facilities that receive funding from Medicaid and Medicare. These inspections determine whether the nursing home facility meets the standards of quality and performance as required by Medicaid and Medicare. Any violations found during the inspection will result in a deficiency and is considered public information that can be found here. A facility’s record of citations or complaints may also be a good indication as to the conditions of the facility and level of care that is provided to residents.
Nursing home neglect may be manifested through injuries that commonly include pressure ulcers, falls and related injuries, contraction of infections such as scabies or MRSA, dehydration and malnutrition, along with injuries sustained from a violation of a Patient’s Bill of Rights. If you or your loved one has suffered any of these injuries as a result of nursing home neglect, we encourage you to contact us for a free consultation today. You and your loved ones have entrusted these facilities to provide residents with quality care, and they are obligated to provide it. We can help protect you or your loved one’s best interests and hold all responsible parties accountable for any breaches of their obligations.
