Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to the hospital on Thursday morning after falling and fracturing three ribs, the Supreme Court announced.

The court’s public information office said that Ginsburg, 85, fell in her office at the Supreme Court on Wednesday night and subsequently returned to her home. But she began to feel discomfort overnight and went to George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C., on Thursday morning.

There, Ginsburg underwent tests, which showed she fractured three ribs on her left side. She was then admitted for observation and treatment, according to the court.

    Not my favorite SCOTUS justice, but I do wish Justice Ginsburg a successful recovery. Broken bones at her age are really serious and difficult to recover from.
