Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg Hospitalized for Possible Infection

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized.

The 87-year-old Supreme Court Justice is expected to stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment amid a potential infection, via a press release from the Supreme Court on Tuesday (July 14).

Justice Ginsburg was admitted to The Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, Maryland early this morning for treatment of a possible infection. She was initially evaluated at Sibley Memorial Hospital in Washington, D.C. last night after experiencing fever and chills. She underwent an endoscopic procedure at Johns Hopkins this afternoon to clean out a bile duct stent that was placed last August,” the statement reads, adding that she is “resting comfortably” as she seeks treatment.

Back in May, she was admitted to a facility for a benign gallbladder condition.

We are wishing the best to Ruth Bader Ginsburg in her recovery.
