Nursing Home Investigation

   Two Tyler nursing homes are under investigation after patients were found with bruises. In one case at the Briarcliff, an 87 year old man was found with a black eye. In that case, a former employee is being questioned.

   Meanwhile, at Colonial Manor, family members reported an elderly woman had bruising on her face. Representatives for the Colonial Manor say the bruising is a result of a fall.

   In both cases, the patients suffer with Alzheimer's.
