Woman calls Collierville police after mother injured at troubled nursing home

COLLIERVILLE, Tenn. — A woman contacted police about suspected abuse after her 63-year-old mother was rushed to the hospital overnight from a nursing home with a history of problems….

"Looks like a black eye, like somebody just punched her in the eye," Bernard said, describing what her mother looked like. "And now it's infected and stuff and she can't open it. So I'm like, it's like real bad."

But what Bernard says she found strange was this message left by the nursing home roughly an hour before, saying the situation was not an emergency.

That didn't make sense to Bernard since her mother wound up in the ER, and later, admitted to Methodist Germantown.
