Brief Answer:
That is pretty low level.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Her current BP levels are low.Important thing is , whether her BP has dropped recently and was her BP good at the hospital?. Recent hospital records can help you with her routine BP levels.

If this is a recent drop and these are not her regular level, then notify her doctor immediately.

There might have been fluid imbalance or heart going into failure.Doctor might want to adjust her medication or keep her under observation depending on her symptoms.

If she had being doing fine on lower levels since few days, then doctor might just want to do close follow up.

Hope this helps. Please ask if there are doubts.Regards.
