The Explosive Ordnance Disposal Team (EOD) arrived at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital Wednesday morning after hearing that "a patient presented with ammunition in his rectum," a Gloucestershire Constabulary spokesman told Insider.
The spokesman added that the object had already been removed by doctors when the bomb squad arrived, and the EOD confirmed that the grenade was "not alive" and "therefore not a threat to the public."
The Sun was the first to report that the unnamed patient told doctors at Gloucestershire Royal Hospital that he "slipped and fell" on the two-inch wide artillery shell.
The media reported that the grenade was part of his collection of military memorabilia.

In a statement sent to Insider, the Gloucestershire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust said, "As with any ammunition incident, relevant safety protocols have been followed to ensure that no patient, staff or visitor was at any time."
The UK newspaper Metro reported that procedures to remove objects from the rectum of patients cost the National Health Service (NHS) around £ 340,000 (US $ 450,000) a year.
