One day, as my mother was doing the laundry in the toilet, she slipped and fell. As she felt some discomfort in her abdomen after that, she went to the clinic to get checked out.
Is the phrase in bold fine? Thanks.
"To get checked out" is US colloquial, but is not "wrong", if that is what you are aiming for. A more widely used alternative might be "to be examined", however you could just write "she went to the clinic" because the reader will understand why she went to the clinic from the context.
