San Fernando, California

Welcome to the San Fernando website for nursing home neglect, created and managed by the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. Our team of highly motivated elderly abuse lawyers are dedicated to sharing information that could help you to identify and prevent possible nursing home abuse from happening to your loved ones.

Located in the San Fernando Valley in the northwestern region of Los Angeles County, the city of San Fernando was named for the Mission San Fernando Rey de Espana located nearby. As of 2010, the total population amounted to 23,645. The city became the valley's first organized community in 1874 after experiencing a brief gold rush during the 1840s, and was incorporated as a city in 1911. San Fernando is currently undergoing a series of planned development projects that began in late 2004, one of which is the Ride the Trolley program that links the city's commercial and residential areas while charging a small 25 cents per ride fare. There are currently no Skilled Nursing Facilities located in San Fernando.

There are two prevalent issues that the elderly are often at higher risk for in a nursing home environment: dehydration and malnutrition. Dehydration, which comes from an excessive loss of body fluid, is often an issue in nursing facilities where the residents suffer from disabilities that impede their ability to drink or eat without the assistance of a helper. Malnutrition also is often a direct effect of a nursing home's lack of individualized care and inadequate staff. Section 483.30 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations states that a nursing home must be able to give adequate care and support to all of their residents. Both dehydration and malnutrition share a number of similar symptoms that could help you to determine if your loved ones are suffering, some of which include very dry/scaly mouth and skin, dizziness, and disorientation, to name a few. Both also can lead to many concurring health problems which could result in immobility, falls, and death.

If you believe that any of your loved ones residing in a nursing facility might have suffered through dehydration or malnutrition due to a lack of adequately trained staff, or if they have suffered any other kinds of abuse, please contact us for a free consultation. At the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we are driven and aggressive in our pursuit to end all avoidable suffering within Skilled Nursing Facilities.

Client Reviews
Excellent staff and the epitome of genuine, honest, and beyond helpful. I was lost and running out of time until I found Yeroushalmi law office. I am beyond grateful and had the pleasure of working with such amazing people who look out for your best interest. Anonymous review
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

Mr Yeroushalmi was our lawyer for a case involving my mother who was a victim of elderly abuse while in a nursing home. He and his team did an excellent job.
