At just about three square miles, the city of Stanton is a young municipal corporation with just over 38,000 citizens. The city was incorporated into the state of California in 1956, but it can trace back its history to a massive land grant of over 300,000 acres made in the 1700s. The colors of the city flag, dark blue, gold, and light blue, represent diligence, abundance, and justice, respectively. The beautiful Bird of Paradise flower was selected as the city flower in 1959, upon recommendation made by the Stanton Women's Civic Club. In 1987, the city's motto was adopted: "Community Pride and Forward Vision." As such, the city's Council-Manager method of government has been able to provide every citizen with a voice to be heard on a full range of city issues, promoting progress and pride in the city. According to the 2010 US Census, Stanton has a population of 38,186. Stanton is home to a single nursing home facility.
Regardless of how many options you might have in choosing a facility, one must always take caution of the problems presented by even the most polished skilled nursing home facility. Here at the Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi, our staff is committed to educating you about the risks that come along with placing a loved one in the care of such a facility, and are committed to helping you if legal problems should arise. One of the leading causes of nursing home negligence, which is unfortunately a problem that is far too prevalent in most facilities, is understaffing. According to California Health and Safety Code Section 1276.5, nursing facilities must meet a minimum requirement of 3.2 nursing hours per patient, per day. A recent study conducted by Modern Healthcare discusses the dangers of the long hours nursing home staff members are forced to work due to insufficient staffing. Severe exhaustion can cause memory loss, confusion, and impaired judgment--all of which are life threatening to your loved ones whose health and wellbeing you place in the hands of the skilled nursing home staff. Not only is understaffing a Patients' Rights violation, but it can also increase the chances of dehydration and malnutrition, falls, pressure ulcers, and infections. If you or a loved one has suffered from any form of nursing home neglect, contact us today.
