Teddy Russell Dies From Negligence at Mountain Vista Farm

Family Suing Glen Ellen Facility for Death

Glen Ellen, CA (June 16, 2018) – A college student died from negligence after he checked into Mountain Vista Farm. The man died at the Glen Ellen facility on June 18, 2018.

Teddy Russell, 19, just finished his freshman year at UC Santa Barbara and was home for the summer in Novato. However, he was dealing with an addiction to painkillers and checked himself into Mountain Vista Farm, a rehab facility in Glen Ellen. 

Teddy died eight hours later. A counselor found him unconscious in his room. Mountain Vista Farm was fined $700 for Teddy’s death and his family is suing for negligence.

Teddy did have fentanyl in his system when he died, according to one report. However, licensed rehab facilities in California are required to provide face-to-face checks with patients every 30 minutes in the first 72 hours. With Teddy, only three of the 12 check-ins were face-to-face and no vitals were done on Teddy, as required. 

Our heartfelt condolences go out to the friends and loved ones of Teddy Russell.
