Steve Scalise, After Contracting an Infection, Returns to ICU — Back in ‘Serious’ Condition

House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.) went back into the intensive care unit due to concerns over an infection, MedStar Washington Hospital Center reported on Wednesday.


Scalise was originally in intensive care after a gunman shot him at a baseball practice on June 14. The gunshot caused severe internal bleeding, organ damage, and fractured bones. Scalise underwent multiple surgeries and blood transfusions.

His condition was previously listed as fair as of June 12, but after contracting an infection his condition was downgraded back to serious.
