ATLANTA — Former President Jimmy Carter was admitted to the hospital Monday night for a procedure, the Carter Center announced.

The procedure is scheduled for Tuesday morning.
“President Carter is resting comfortably, and his wife, Rosalynn, is with him,” the Carter Center said in a statement.
Carter fell in his Plains, Georgia home Oct. 21. It was the second time Carter has taken a fall recently.
