Administering enema:

With steady pressure, gently insert enema tip into rectum with a slight side-to-side movement, with tip pointing toward navel. Insertion may be easier if person receiving enema bears down, as if having a bowel movement. This helps relax the muscles around the anus.
Do not force the enema tip into rectum as this can cause injury.
Squeeze bottle until nearly all liquid is gone. It is not necessary to empty the bottle completely, as it contains more liquid than needed.
Remove enema tip from rectum.
Retain enema in accordance with doctor's instructions.
