Senator Dianne Feinstein was hospitalized yesterday afternoon after suffering a nasty fall at her San Francisco, California home.
Feinstein who is 90 years old was taken to the hospital after falling but was later released after scans cleared her from any internal injuries.
The longtime Democrat Senator was previously hospitalized for over 3 months for shingles, Ramsay Hunt syndrome and encephalitis.

Senator Dianne Feinstein was at the hospital, TMZ has learned, after tripping and falling Tuesday in her home city of San Francisco.
We do not know how serious her injuries are … only that she was taken to a nearby hospital. We’re told she returned home Tuesday night.
The 90-year-old Senator has struggled with health issues over the last year. She was absent from the Senate for nearly 3 months earlier this year dealing with shingles, Ramsay Hunt syndrome and encephalitis.

Per NBC News:
Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif., fell at home Tuesday and visited the hospital to get checked out, her office said.
“Senator Feinstein briefly went to the hospital yesterday afternoon as a precaution after a minor fall in her home. All of her scans were clear and she returned home,” a Feinstein spokesperson told NBC News in an email Wednesday.
She was at the hospital for about two hours, the spokesperson said.
TMZ first reported Wednesday morning that the 90-year-old senator paid a visit to the hospital after she tripped and fell Tuesday at her San Francisco home.
Feinstein’s health has been closely watched — this year, she missed three months of work in the Senate after she was hospitalized with shingles. She has rejected calls to resign and insists she will remain a senator until her term ends in January 2025, then retire.
Senator Diane Feinstein is 90.
