"She went home, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, went to George Washington University Hospital early this morning", the court's press secretary, Kathy Arberg, said in a statement.

The court made the announcement on November 8, saying that the 85-year-old went home after the fall but had "discomfort overnight" and went to George Washington Hospital in the morning, according to a statement. She had been admitted for treatment and observation after fracturing three ribs in a fall. "The last I heard she was up and working, of course, because what else would she be doing, and cracking jokes", Stiepleman said. "I can't promise they were good jokes but they were jokes". "She is a very tough woman, 85 years old, falling. obviously we are praying for her".

Bader Ginsburg has battled multiple health issues in the past, her most recent being a blocked artery in 2014 during which she underwent a procedure to have a stent implanted.

Ginsburg's nephew, Daniel Stiepleman, told Reuters on Thursday evening that Ginsburg was working in her hospital room.
