Republican Sen. Mitch McConnell of Kentucky left an inpatient rehab facility Saturday following physical therapy, CNN reported.
McConnell, the senate minority leader, was hospitalized Mar. 9 after he tripped and fell during an event at the Waldorf Astoria in Washington, D.C., suffering a concussion and a fractured rib. He will work from home on the advice of medical professionals, according to CNN.
McConnell entered an inpatient rehab facility after he was released from the hospital March 13. The 81-year-old senator was previously treated for a broken shoulder after a 2019 fall in his Kentucky home, CNN reported.
Democratic Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and John Fetterman of Pennsylvania also are receiving treatment for medical issues. Feinstein, who announced her retirement earlier this year, was hospitalized after being diagnosed with shingles March 2, and was released from the hospital March 7.
Fetterman, who had a stroke in May, was admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center Feb. 15 to undergo inpatient treatment for depression. A top Fetterman aide told The New York Times that Fetterman’s continued campaigning for the Senate seat after the stroke may have caused permanent damage, contradicting a letter released by Fetterman’s campaign.
