Secretary Clinton in hospital with blood clot stemming from concussion
Published December 30, 2012
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has been admitted to a hospital in New York with blood clot stemming from a concussion she sustained several weeks ago.
Assistant Deputy Secretary of State Philippe Reines said in a statement that during a follow-up exam, Clinton’s doctors discovered a blood clot had formed. She is being treated with anti-coagulants and is at New York-Presbyterian Hospital so that they can monitor the medication over the next 48 hours.
Doctors will continue to monitor Clinton’s condition to determine if further action is necessary.
