Rosemead, California

Hello, and welcome to the Rosemead nursing home abuse and neglect website. Unfortunately, elder abuse cases grow more commonplace every day. Recent studies show that as the "baby boom" generation approaches their retirement, about 25% of the elderly population will soon reside in a nursing home, hopefully at a facility equipped with the proper amount of resources and staff. At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we are dedicated to providing you and your loved ones with information regarding the abuse and neglect of the elderly within nursing homes and facilities, so that you may determine if such an environment will be the best fit for your loved ones.

Located in the Los Angeles County, Rosemead is part of a group of cities located in the San Gabriel Valley with a growing Asian population and culture. According to the 2010 census, the population of the city was at 53,764. The city's name was derived from a ranch owned by pioneer Leonard J. Rose, who initially named his ranch "Rose's Meadow" and later shortened it to the current name of "Rosemead". In 1959, Rosemead was incorporated into a city. Rosemead is currently home to two different Community Centers that offer activities and programs for residents of all ages, ranging from youth and adult classes to senior activities. The city also currently has five Skilled Nursing Facilities registered within city limits.

It is alarming that none of the five Skilled Nursing Facilities listed in Rosemead's city limits are among the top ten employers of the city's published 2011 Comprehensive Annual Financial Report. The idea that a nursing facility currently employs less than 80 staff members for a home that has the ability to house over 150 elderly residents suggests that the facility is highly understaffed, which studies have shown leads to substandard care and a rise in elderly abuse and neglect. The elderly are promised by law a minimum of 3.2 nursing hours, but often need more than the minimum amount due to personal care plans and medical conditions. It is stated in Section 483.30 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations that a nursing home must be able to employ a sufficient amount of nursing staff in order to provide the medical care and attention that their patients both need and deserve. If a nursing facility has the appropriate amount of staff and enforces standard medical training, many preventable infections and issues such as pressure ulcers, falls, dehydration, and malnutrition can be avoided.

If you are concerned that your loved ones may have been placed in an understaffed nursing facility, or is currently in an elder abusive situation, you can contact us for a free consultation and advice concerning your situation. Allow us to use our team's expertise in the field of nursing home litigation to help remedy your loved one's situation.

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

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
