Long After Fall of Communism, Nancy Reagan Just Falls

Former first lady Nancy Reagan was hospitalized after falling in her home in Bel-Air but is doing well, her spokeswoman said.

Reagan, 86, was taken to St. John's Health Center, where doctors determined she did not break a hip Sunday as feared, spokeswoman Joanne Drake said. Drake said Reagan was doing well and would stay the night in the same room where former President Ronald Reagan stayed after he broke his hip at home in 2001. He died June 5, 2004.

The former first lady is "joking and visiting in her room," Drake said. Reagan's family physician recommended the overnight stay "as a precaution," Drake said.
If they offer Nancy advice and devices to prevent future falls, some DP participants are hoping she will "Just Say No."
