Sen. Nitka hospitalized after fall

LEBANON, N.H. — A Windsor County State Senator is hospitalized at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center in New Hampshire after a major fall in her apartment last Thursday.
Alice Nitka of Ludlow was in her Montpelier apartment when she fell down the stairs and injured her spleen, according to her husband Martin Nitka. He said that Alice “saw a spider, reached over (to remove it), and fell down some stairs.”
Alice Nitka went transported to Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin and spent three nights in the hospital. Her husband said doctors “hoped it would heal on its own” but she was transferred to DHMC on Monday for additional medical attention.
“The doctors did a medical procedure where they plugged a hole in her spleen,” Martin Nitka said. “We have no idea when she will be released. It depends on how everything works out.”
