In the video, Ruby explains she was forced to call 911 to get herself to a local hospital after suffering complications. The problem is, the vehicle ended up driving around for hours because they couldn’t find a hospital willing to admit her. At this point, the actress isn’t specific about the exact ailment, but it was serious enough to be rushed to a hospital.

“They’d been rejecting people all night,” she explained. Adding, “And my case was quite serious — we stuck it out for a little bit longer, and we were lucky enough to get accepted by a hospital after a bit of a standoff.”

In the end, Ruby received the treatment she needed, and is now resting comfortably at home. The star thanked health care workers for their “amazing work” and urged her fans to get vaccinated against COVID-19. “Try to keep yourself safe. Try to keep everyone safe. Get vaccinated if you can, please, it doesn’t need to be this hard for everyone and I just can’t imagine all the other people that are having way way more serious situations happening right now,” she said.
