In the United States, we usually say in the hospital and at the hospital. A person is at the hospital when he is physically on the premises of the hospital. A person who is in the hospital is a patient at that facility.Hello, can anyone tell me what´s the difference between "in hospital" and "at hospital"? May I use the definite article in both of these phrases? Thank you
Thank you for your replies, I have on more question - when I say a sentence in the present perfect tense, shall I say then (when I am a patient): "I have never been in hospital" or "I have never been to hospital"? Or is the present perfect always connected with the preposition "to" in sentences like these?
I have never been in hospital (as a patient)
I have never been at hospital (as a visitor of a patient)
I have never been to hospital with the same sense ? I have never been to Paris
