Welcome to the forum, you might want to have a look at the following FAQ which explain where everything is

Welcome to Benefits and Work

In case you are not aware, your real name appears to be showing in the forum, if you want to change this then follow the instructions in the following FAQ

My full name is showing, how can I stop it?

In principle he should be paid, but notification of his being in hospital for more than 28 days may delay the payment as based on your post his normal payment would result in an over payment. The delay should only be for a couple of days.
