Rolling Hills, California
Welcome to the Rolling Hills website for the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, where we specialize in elder abuse and nursing home neglect litigation. It is crucial for you to be aware of the many abuses to which your loved one may fall victim as a resident of a Los Angeles skilled nursing facility.
Rolling Hills is located in the Palos Verdes Hills and was incorporated in 1957. The city consists of one gated community and based on per capita income, it has been ranked as one of the nation's richest places. The city resembles a ranch setting, with no streetlights, expansive paths for equestrians, and vast spaces between houses. The population of Rolling Hills is just 1,860 and the city has no skilled nursing facilities. However, you can search this website for one near your home.
Many government agencies such as Medicare and non-profit organizations like the California Advocates for Nursing Home Reform provide reliable resources to help you find the best nursing home for your loved one. When the time comes for you or your loved one to find a nursing home, make sure you choose one with high quality ratings and no deficiency citations. There are four levels of deficiencies, with four being the most serious and posing an immediate threat to resident safety. The California Department of Public Health records also indicate if these incidents are isolated, pattern, or widespread so that you can assess how often they occur.
Understaffing is one of the most prominent problems in nursing homes and, in almost all cases, is linked to many other issues. For example, a lack of resources will prevent your loved one from being repositioned in bed or guided in daily physical activities. This significantly increases his or her risk of developing a pressure sore, one of the most common preventable injuries in skilled nursing facilities. If the wound itself does not seriously injure the patient, it is likely that an infection will. Unfortunately, this is a very common occurrence in nursing homes and residents die this way much too often. Our goal is to bring justice to the many abuses that occur on a daily basis in Los Angeles skilled nursing facilities.
