South Pasadena, California

Welcome to the website of the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, specifically tailored to South Pasadena. Our attorneys specialize in the neglect and abuse of elderly. We have created this site so that you may become more familiar with the aspects of nursing home litigation. We are firm believers that no nursing home resident should have to continue suffering in a situation harmful to their health or emotional safety.

The City of South Pasadena is located between Pasadena and Alhambra, North East of downtown Los Angeles. Originally a longstanding habitation area for members of the Tongva Nation, the city was incorporated in 1888 as it split off from Pasadena proper. In modern times the city still retains a traditional small town feel, which is exploited in films and television, such as Legally Blond and Fox's Bones. Many older venues have been well maintained, such the Fair Oaks Pharmacy and Soda Fountain and the historic Rialto movie theatre, contributing to the city's charm and retro persona. The weekly farmers market has become a staple along with the many one off boutique restaurants that are sprinkled along South Pasadena's streets. There is only one Skilled Nursing Facility in the city, but twenty three are easily accessible in the neighboring cities of Pasadena and Alhambra.

Whatever nursing home you choose, it is important that the facility treat your loved one with care and respect. Not only should a nursing home patient's health be monitored and well-managed, but the staff need to make sure that all residents' self respect and comfort are maintained. An area where nursing facilities commonly fail to perform their prescribed duties is with patients suffering from incontinence. Loss of bladder control can be very distressing so it of the utmost importance that nursing homes train their staff properly in how to deal with incidents sympathetically and with respect for the resident's dignity. In order to do this, the facility must be adequately staffed and respond to patients' call lights promptly to ensure that no one has to endure extended periods of time in extreme discomfiture. When nursing staff allow residents to remain in unhygienic states it puts them at great risk for other serious injuries, such as pressure ulcers and infections like methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA). Nursing homes should work with residents to create individual care plans to help address and treat incontinence issues.

When skilled nursing facilities allow your loved one to suffer assaults upon his or her dignity and health by improperly caring for their needs because of incontinence or other health complications, it is a violation of patients' rights. If your loved one is in such a situation, please contact us today and we will arrange to discuss your situation in a free consultation at our offices or at your own home or hospital bed.

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
