Long Beach news, California news.

A California woman has filed a complaint against College Medical Center after video showing her mother standing outside the front door of the care facility at 2 a.m.

Costanza Genoese Zerbi, said that her mother, who suffers from Alzheimer's disease, was transported from Regency Palms assisted living facility to the College Medical Center in a cab. "Putting my mother in a cab is no different from a hospital putting a minor child in a cab."

Zerbi also claimed that her 84-year-old mother has the mental capacity of a toddler. "She is delusional, has hallucinations and is confused about facts," she said.

A security video showed the elderly woman trying to open the door and walking up and down a dark alley.
