Justice Ginsburg Admitted to Hospital

She will spend several days being treated for an infection.

Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg was admitted to a hospital on Tuesday morning for treatment of a possible infection, a spokeswoman for the Court said.

“The Justice is resting comfortably and will stay in the hospital for a few days to receive intravenous antibiotic treatment,” the statement said.

At 87, Justice Ginsburg is the eldest justice. She was initially seen at a hospital in Washington, D.C. Monday night after experiencing fever and chills. She underwent a procedure at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore on Tuesday afternoon to clean a bile duct stent that was inserted last August. She has had a series of health scares in recent years. Last May, she underwent non-surgical treatment for a gallstone that had caused an infection.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Justice Ginsburg to have a full recovery from her infection.
  • For all of America’s Supreme Court Justices to remain in good health through the summer months.
