Walnut, California

Welcome to nursing home neglect attorney Ben Yeroushalmi's website dedicated to the city of Walnut. As a team of specialists in elder abuse and nursing home neglect, we feel it is our duty to inform you of the many abuses that are encountered by residents of skilled nursing facilities in Southern California.

Walnut is a quiet town located in the San Gabriel Valley. It became a city of Los Angeles in 1959. Since 2009, the city has consistently been ranked as one of the "Best Places to Live." The city was a part of the Rancho Los Nogales land grant and derives its name from the Spanish word "nogales," which means walnut. Each year, the Walnut Family Festival is held and provides an opportunity for the community to gather and enjoy games, food, and other fun activities. Although Walnut does not have any skilled nursing facilities located within the city, you can search this website for one that is convenient to you.

When you do find a nursing home that you feel is suitable for your loved one, make sure you check the California Department of Public Health website for any deficiency citations the facility may have received. Periodically, the Department of Public Health conducts inspections of health facilities and issues citations to those that pose a threat to the health and safety of its residents. The department then publishes the results of its inspection on its website. Government health agencies use these inspections to determine the amount of funding it will provide to the nursing home.

Because funding is contingent upon quality of care, which is often measured by the number of incidents of preventable injuries, such pressure ulcers or as those that occur as a result of falls, nursing homes often have incentives to conceal certain injuries from these agencies. They engage in the practice of "downcoding," which involves charting an injury as a less serious one, in order to avoid liability and continue receiving funding. The manipulation of medical records, however, is a serious violation of Patients' rights and must be stopped. When medical conditions are improperly charted, your loved one is not receiving the appropriate care for his or her health and this almost always prevents a quick and successful recovery. Often, it can even lead to death.

If you suspect that your loved one is a victim of nursing home abuse, contact us immediately for a free consultation to see how we can help.

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
