U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg has been hospitalized due to three broken ribs, a spokesperson said in a statement.

"Notorious RBG," as she's known by her fans, fell in her office Wednesday evening. She went home anyway, but after experiencing discomfort overnight, she was admitted to George Washington University Hospital for observation on Thursday. There, doctors discovered the 85-year-old justice had broken three ribs on her left side.

Typically, it takes around six weeks for broken ribs to heal and justices are set to return to court on November 26. But if Ginsburg's history tells us anything, her injuries won't keep her away from work for long.

In 2012, she also cracked two ribs but continued working as she recovered. And when she underwent a heart procedure that same year, she quickly returned to work.
