News / Blog Advocacy News Statement from Speaker Straus Regarding Rep. Naishtat

Statement from Speaker Straus Regarding Rep. Naishtat

Statement from Speaker Straus, sent at 9:21 PM on Saturday, August 23:

 

Please see the below message from Representative Elliott Naishtat.

Representative Elliott Naishtat is improving and has been moved to a regular hospital room after sustaining an injury in a bicycle accident.

An accident while biking with legislative colleagues caused bruising and swelling on his lower leg. The swelling was in part a reaction to blood thinner medication taken to maintain good blood flow through a mechanical heart valve inserted many years ago.

Overall excellent health and fitness are paying off right now. The excellent team of physicians at Hennepin County Medical Center will continue to monitor his condition.

In good spirits, Representative Naishtat said "I am very impressed with the HCMC teaching hospital and looking forward to returning home soon to share some best practices with Austin's new medical school."

We wish Representative Naishtat a safe and speedy recovery.
