Santa Fe Springs, California

This is the Santa Fe Springs nursing home abuse website, provided by the expert nursing home neglect litigation team at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi. There is so much that can be learned about nursing home neglect and abuse, a very prevalent problem of America's current healthcare system. While we hope that you or your loved ones never find yourself in a situation involving elderly abuse, if you do find yourselves enmeshed in such a situation then we believe that the information provided within this website can prove to be beneficial.

Santa Fe Springs plays an important role as one of the Gateway Cities to the southeast Los Angeles County. As of the 2010 census, the current population of the city is 16,223. In the 1920s, the Santa Fe Springs oil fields were thought of as one of the biggest pools of petroleum in history thus far. Even though production levels began to fall shortly after, by 1938 more than 440 million barrels of oil had already been taken from the field. In 1962, Santa Fe Springs became the birthplace of the Shelby Cobra, a light weight British sports car injected with the power of an American hot rod. Today, the city's economy is largely supported by light industry rather than the heavy industry found in the surrounding cities. There are currently no Skilled Nursing Facilities located in Santa Fe Springs.

For the majority of Skilled Nursing Facilities, infections are very common and spread relatively fast. One such infection is methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), which is becoming increasingly more pervasive within nursing homes. MRSA is an aggressive type of staph bacteria that causes infection and health problems once introduced to a person's body through a catheter, breathing tube, or open wound. Once instituted within the body, it becomes very difficult and expensive to treat as it is resistant to most antibiotics used to cure general staph infections. The majority of infections, MRSA included, can be prevented by proper hygiene practices that must be put into effect by the nursing staff. It is easy for a nurse to transmit the bacteria to another patient after treating one who has been infected if she does not at least wash or treat her hands. Once an outbreak occurs in a nursing home, it becomes very difficult to control and abate. Nurses and other staff must be trained in being able to identify and understand the nature of the infection, and must also be able to implement quick systematic responses.

In the Electronic Code of Federal Regulations, Section 483.30 promises that every resident has the right to sufficient service as determined by their individual plans of care and assessments. The ability of an infection such as MRSA to spread uninhibited within a facility is a sign that improper care is occurring within the home, which leads to elder abuse and neglect. If you believe that your loved ones may currently reside in a facility that is unable to properly care for their patients, please contact us, as we provide free consultations. Let us help you determine the next step to take in protecting the health and happiness of your loved ones.

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
