Signal Hill, California

Welcome to nursing home neglect lawyer Ben Yeroushalmi's Signal Hill website. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, we focus on elder abuse and nursing home neglect litigation and would like to offer you some insight on choosing an appropriate skilled nursing facility for your loved one.

The city of Signal Hill is a small city completely surrounded by Long Beach. Because the hill is 365 feet above the surrounding lands, the Tongva Indians used to burn signal fires on the top of the hill which could be seen all the way out to Catalina Island. Today, the city is sometimes nicknamed "Porcupine Hill" because it is a major hotspot for oil and is covered with oil derricks, which give it a prickly appearance. The city of Signal Hill has one skilled nursing facility.

As specialists in nursing home neglect, we advise you to be very cautious of your loved one's health if he or she is a resident at a skilled nursing facility. Quality of care has declined so rapidly in recent times that even government healthcare agencies have had to intervene and take action. Too often, nursing homes fail to provide a patient with proper care, and this sometimes has consequences as serious as death. In an attempt to reduce the amount of preventable injuries and deaths, Medicare has implemented a 'No-Pay' Rule which asserts that facilities will not receive funding to care for injuries that were acquired within the facility as a result of the facility's own failure to provide appropriate care. The Department of Health and Human Services has also initiated a similar program.

These strict new programs can be traced back to the exploitation of Medicare funds by skilled nursing facilities. Instead of using funds to increase staffing and improve quality of care, many nursing homes use their budget to improperly administer antipsychotic drugs and use them as chemical restraints to sedate patients.

The egregious acts of Los Angeles skilled nursing facilities need to be stopped. Contact us today to join us in the fight against nursing home neglect and elder abuse.

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
