Ginsburg out of hospital after fracturing ribs
WASHINGTON — Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was discharged from the hospital and planned to work from home on Friday, a day after being admitted with three fractured ribs, a court spokeswoman said.
“Justice Ginsburg has been discharged from the hospital,” Kathleen Arberg said in a statement. “She is doing well and plans to work from home today.”
Ginsburg, 85, was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning for observation and treatment.
A statement from the court said Ginsburg fell in her office Wednesday but returned home. She went to the hospital early Thursday after “experiencing discomfort overnight.”
Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side, the statement said.
