My mom is having BP of 190, what to do ?

My mom called me today like she does every weekend, we chatted about a little this and that, and during the conversation she mentioned she got 190 in blood pressure when checking last week, and she would check again next week. I don t know how serious it is... I thought below 120 was normal

Call a nurse at her doctor's office/hospital immediately. Also, if she is doing the readings herself at home or mat some drug store the readings can be off or the machine needs calibrated. 120/80 is normal
