Justice Ginsburg Hospitalized After Fall Breaks Three Ribs

National Law Journal

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to George Washington University Hospital early Thursday morning after breaking three ribs in a fall in her court chambers Wednesday evening.

Ginsburg, 85, returned to her home after the fall but began experiencing discomfort overnight, according to a statement from the court’s public information office. The justice then went to the hospital.

“Tests showed that she fractured three ribs on her left side and she was admitted for observation and treatment,” the statement said.

The Supreme Court is in session today for the formal investiture ceremony for Justice Brett Kavanaugh, the court’s newest justice.

    Right when really cold weather is starting. Pneumonia high risk. Lucky she didn’t bust a hip. She has to retire.

    This would have been the MSM press release if she had been on a ventillator receiving Jewish last rites. “Progressives” have to be collectively pooping themselves after Tuesdays results in the Senate.

    I don’t wish her any ill will, I just want her to retire, now!

    She’s also a colon cancer survivor so that may figure into the mix too.

    Her tiny stature, obvious frailty and severe kyphotic hump all indicate significant osteoporosis, which would be why she would break 3 ribs (not easy to do otherwise) from a simple fall. I suspect she fell against an edge of furniture, and not onto a flat surface. My question is WHY did she fall? It is always the question that must be asked when an elder has a fall event.

    Slip/trip? Surely her office does not have fall hazards like scatter rugs lying about.

    Neurological event (TIA/stroke)?

    Internal medicine issue (unregulated blood glucose, unbalanced electrolytes, dehydration, bladder infection, cardiac abnormality)?

    The possibilities for an 85 year old are extensive. We will likely never know. I wasn’t aware of her cancer history, which may also be a significant factor.
