Assunto:  Infinitive or gerund after the verb?

Hi you there!!


I was studying and I read a sentence "I preferred to do it...", but once a friend told me that the correct way was "I preferred doing". Can you please help me?

Another question. Which is correct?

I was in the hospital  / I was at the hospital  /  I was in hospital.


Thank you all.


Best regards.
