Ingested FB a screw seen may be stomach or in intestine. No active treatment required as it will come out with stool . Counsel the party not to get worried and ensure them that no active treatment required it will pass out with stool and search out the FB when the child passes stool Banana or laxative can be given to make stool soft and easy passage Wait for 48 hours and to see passed or not. If not go for re xray to see it has passed unnoticed and for the postion and to report surgeon if ther is pain or vomiting .
