An elderly woman was awarded $100,000 after nurses at a hospital destroyed her doll that she treated as her own child, according to court documents in the United Kingdom.

64-year-old Susan Hearsey filed a lawsuit against the National Health Service (NHS) after being abused at the Walsall Manor Hospital.

Her family criticized the hospital for their harsh treatment against Hearsey, and they fear that she may never recover from her ordeal.

According to the lawsuit, Hearsey’s doll was cut up by a nurse because she was not following orders. The doll was found on the floor with its arms cut, clothes missing, and a piece of her hair missing.

Hearsey was devastated as she treated the doll like her own child. After complaining to the hospital, they agreed to buy Hearsey a new doll.

She refused the offer, and went to court. Now, the court in London ordered NHS to pay Hearsey 65,000 pounds ($100,000) in compensation.

The hospital has since apologized to Hearsey and her family.
