Kristoff St. John Sues Mental Health Hospital For Son's Wrongful Death

Kristoff St. John is suing the hospital where his son committed suicide.
The "Young and the Restless" star's 24-year-old son Julian St. John killed himself in November while getting treatment at La Casa Mental Health Hospital in Long Beach.
He was found dead in a bathroom with a plastic bag over his head.
The reason for Kristoff's wrongful death lawsuit is a prior attempt to asphyxiate himself with a trash bag from his room, three weeks before his death.
In the wrongful death suit, Kristoff says after that failed attempt the hospital never removed the trash bags from his room.
In his lawsuit, Kristoff says there's evidence the nurses were falsifying records.
He claims staffers were supposed to check on Julian every 15 minutes because he was a high suicide risk -- but records show they were logging welfare checks before they even happened.
