Scrubs actress Judy Reyes is on the mend after suffering a fracture after an accidental fall, her rep, Monique Ward, tells PEOPLE.
Reyes, 37, who plays nurse Carla Espinosa on the NBC comedy, will be released from the hospital Monday. “She’s going to be fine,” Ward says. “She had an accidental fall at home and fractured her pelvis on Wednesday.
“She had surgery to repair it on Thursday. She didn’t realize it was as bad as it was and still went to work. Once there, she realized she needed medical treatment. She went to a hospital from the set.”
Reyes will be on crutches for about six weeks but is expected to shoot some scenes while she heals, while other parts of the filming schedule will be reworked so that she can complete her scenes at a later date, reps for the actress and the show confirm.
