21 Dec Michael Hobson, As Administrator of the Estate of Terry Lee Hubbard, Jr. Allen v. The Boyd School, Inc., et al.
CIRCUIT COUNT OF BIBB COUNTY, ALABAMA SETTLEMENT OF $590,000
A 12-year-old boy was a resident and student at The Boyd School in Green Pond, Alabama. On November 7, 2007, he died as a direct result of the actions and inactions of the Defendants. He was somehow allowed to ingest enough Prozac that would, according to the medical examiner, “kill a camel.” Plaintiff discovered evidence that this was allowed to occur in part due to staff’s complete indifference to ensure that the students received and ingested the appropriate amounts of their medications. This was clearly shown by the sloppiness in filling out, or sometimes the complete failure to fill out, medication administration records and other records pertaining to the students’ medications. Additionally, the staff on duty at the time he collapsed inexplicably failed to immediately call 911 and instead waited for over thirty minutes to do so. The caregivers also failed to perform CPR for over thirty minutes after he passed out. The failure to call 911 and the failure to immediately provide CPR in a timely manner contributed to the student’s death and gave him no chance for survival.
