I would like to know if there is any difference between these expressions:

1. in the hospital
at the hospital

2. in the school
at school

AT the hospital is a general location, so is more likely to be used for a patient who is being treated, but not staying. IN is more likely to be used for a patient staying or someone employed there. ;-)
