You should say:

She was admitted to hospital yesterday.

However, in the active voice: She admitted that she was wrong.

Hello J.,

In British English, you would say:

1. She was admitted to hospital yesterday.

Additionally to the answers given above, I noticed that "the" sometimes appears before "hospital". Maybe it's AmE or perhaps it's not English-variant-specific but simply if you imply some particular hospital.

Speakers of American English would generally say "He's in the hospital." If someone is just visiting a hospital, or making a delivery there, or working there, rather than admitted as a patient, we would say, "She's at the hospital." "The hospital" does not necessarily imply that we know the name or location of the hospital. ("Mary just called from New York. They were in an accident and John is in the hospital.")

Less common, but possible if you want to expresss a great deal of doubt about the location or identity of the hospital, is "a hospital." "John was riding his bicycle across Africa and I just heard he's in a hospital somewhere, but no one seems to know much about it."

Americans pretty much never say "he's in hospital" without the article.

Hi MrPedantic,

“She was admitted to hospital yesterday” is past tense right. How if the person still in hospital? Can we use similar sentence?

Thanks

She was admitted to hospital yesterday and she was told that she would have to stay three days. She is still in hospital now.

She was admitted to hospital yesterday but she already left in the afternoon.

jdy6374can i said she admitted in hospital yesterday or she admitted to hospital yesterday.
Thank you.
I would highly suggest admitted to rather than admitted in the hospital. As a former English teacher, I know of no rule suggesting one or the other. I am going with my gut on this one because admitted to sounds better and makes more sense to me.
