Hello everybody,

Would you please guide me which one is correct?

1- She made arrangements to get him into a good hospital.
2- She made arrangements to take him into a good hospital.

Thanks inadvance for your time.

    They're both correct, though you likely mean (1).

    (1) => The arrangements regarded her securing a place (a bed) in a hospital. (Maybe she wrote a letter of referral; maybe she had one written)

    (2) => The arrangements regarded her securing his transport to the hospital. (Maybe she phoned for a taxi)
