Hi everybody! Here is the situation : The enemy of John puts pesticide in his bottle of water. John doesn't know that and he drinks, he is poisoned. Which one below is more correct to say between "get his stomach washed" and "have his stomach pumped"?

A. John needs to be taken to the hospital and to get his stomach washed.
B. John needs to be taken to the hospital and to have his stomach pumped.

Thanks a lot!
