The fourth largest city in the Los Angeles County, Santa Clarita has also been rated by the FBI as the sixth safest city in the United States that has at least 100,000 inhabitants and ranked by Money magazine as 18 out of the top 100 places to live in 2006. The city was incorporated in 1987, and as of the 2010 census has a population of 176,320. Many people associate Santa Clarita with the popular Six Flags Magic Mountain amusement park, which is nearby but actually located in Valencia. The city's proximity to Hollywood also allows the Santa Clarita Valley to play host to numerous television and movie productions starting from the early 20th century to today, as it has been a favorite location to film for television shows, commercials, and producers of film. There are currently no Skilled Nursing Facilities located in the city.

It is an unfortunate but a common practice for nursing facilities is to use both chemical and physical restraints on their patients, which is a direct violation of elderly rights. Restraints have been proven to have very serious negative side effects upon patients, which offsets any potential benefit that they might present. They restrict a resident's ability to move and act for themselves in two different ways. Even though nursing facilities argue that physical restraints act as safety measures for residents and nurses, the usage of vests, bedrails, belts, and cuffs to restrict a patient's movement do nothing to lower the risk of falls for elderly adults and can be very detrimental to a person's physical and mental health. They also promote the formation of pressure ulcers through the inability to move, and can further lead to incontinence issues. The second type of restraint, known as a chemical restraint, is the usage of antipsychotic drugs to subdue nursing home residents. Often used as a means to subdue patients with dementia or other similar disorders, they can in fact aggravate dementia further. Side effects of antipsychotic drugs include psychosis, stroke, tremors, severe weight loss, and death.

The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi believes that a nursing facility's unabated use of restraints upon their elderly residents is a condemnable practice. Section 483.30 of the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations states that a nursing facility is required to provide sufficient care to each individual patient, and the unwarranted use of restraints violates that promise. If you believe that you have witnessed the unfair usage of restraints upon any of your loved ones within a nursing home or facility, please contact us for a free consultation. Our team of experienced and dedicated lawyers will fight for your loved one's right to be treated without abuse or neglect within a nursing home.

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
