Former President Bill Clinton was admitted to the University of California Irvine Medical Center’s intensive care unit for a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream, his doctors told CNN.
“He was admitted to the ICU for close monitoring and administered IV antibiotics and fluids. He remains at the hospital for continuous monitoring,” a statement read. It said that Clinton was in the ICU for privacy and safety, not because he needs intensive care.
Clinton is in good spirits, talking to family and staff, and has been up and walking, according to both his doctors and his staff. “We hope to have him go home soon,” the doctors said.
