The city of Sunnyvale is located in the San Francisco Bay Area, right at the heart of the Silicon Valley. Like the rest of Santa Clara Valley, the city was inhabited by the Ohlone Native Americans who converted to Christianity in 1777 after the Spanish had arrived. Later, it became a burgeoning railroad town when the San Francisco and San Jose Railroad decided to lay down track there. Nowadays, due to its favorable proximity to some of the largest and most innovative technological firms in the world, it is a central location for the aerospace/defense industries with companies such as Lockheed Martin and Finisar calling Sunnyvale home. There is also a U.S. Air Force presence in the city, with the Onizuka Air Force Station operating nearby. This base was the primary artificial satellite control facility of the U.S. until 2010. There is currently 4 Skilled Nursing Facilities in the city of Sunnyvale.
Every patient of a Skilled Nursing Facility has a right to be treated with the respect and dignity that they deserve. Other Patient Rights include the right to live in a safe, clean, and homelike environment, the right to a clean bed, and to maintain a good nutritional diet. These rights may seem self evident, but unfortunately they are not always adhered to. Overcrowded Nursing Homes with poorly coordinated nutritional and therapeutic programs are all too common. Understaffing and the overuse of medication, especially anti-psychotics, to chemically restrain patients also pose serious risks to residents in Skilled Nursing Facilities today.
These misguided and cost-saving policies are a violation of the Patients Rights and should not be tolerated by the residents of these facilities or their loved ones. Not only are these policies detrimental to the physical and mental well being of residents, they also hurt the dignity of the victims and their loved ones.
Fortunately, the attorneys at The Law Offices of Ben Yeroushalmi are here to help. We understand that you and your loved ones expect to be treated with dignity and respect, and we are dedicated to holding the violators responsible for their neglect. We are vigilant against the abuses that occur much too frequently in Nursing Homes today and are passionate about defending and restoring the dignity of the victims.
