San Juan Capistrano, California

Welcome to attorney Ben Yeroushalmi's nursing home neglect page for San Juan Capistrano. At our law offices we believe that elder care facilities should not be able continue with the systematic abuse they inflict upon many residents. To let such pain and suffering happen under their roofs is not only illegal, it's unthinkable. We want to help make sure that your loved one does not have to suffer through such circumstances. Please read on to see what we can do for you.

With the community dating back to the signing of the declaration of independence, San Juan Capistrano is steeped in history. Named after the founding missionary, the Serra Chapel is thought to be the oldest Church in California. The "jewel of the missions" stands today as one of the most significant monuments in early Californian history. The arrival of the railroad in the late 19th century led to expansion and the beginning of San Juan Capistrano's reputation as a tourist destination and left its mark on the city in the form of the historic depot office. . People travel here to take part in the "fiesta de las golondrinas", celebrating the return of the swallows in spring, or to visit the architecturally award-winning library designed by Michael Braves. The relatively recent incorporation of San Juan Capistrano in 1961 does little to hide the rich history of the city.

Even thought there is only one Skilled Nursing Facility in San Juan Capistrano, it is important that residents are well aware of the many aspects that make up nursing home abuse. Sadly, there are many ways in which a nursing home can take advantage of and harm its patients. The underlying cause of many such injuries is inadequate staffing levels. The importance of having enough staff to meet all of the needs of residents is highlighted by legal statute, requiring a minimum of 3.2 nursing hours per patient every day. But even though the state conducts sporadic surveys to enforce staffing levels, many nursing homes regularly do not comply.

Inadequate staffing puts every resident in a nursing home at risk. The nature of elder care requires individual supervision and care. When the facility is unable to provide this, for whatever reason, they are failing in their responsibility to provide a safe environment. Understaffing can greatly increase the risk of residents suffering harmful falls. To reduce fall risk without dedicating the necessary staffing hours, some facilities resort to the use of chemical and physical restraints. Used excessively, physical restraints are an assault on a patient's wellbeing and quality of life and the use of antipsychotics and excessive tranquilizers can lead to harmful side effects and polypharmacy. It is every patient's right to have their health, wellbeing, and quality of life maintained in a respectful and dignified manner.

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
