squeezing the enema bag so the flow rate is faster.
explaining to the client that this is a normal feeling and continuing with the enema.
clamping the tube for 1 minute and then starting the enema at a slower rate.
discontinuing the enema until the provider can order a PRN pain medication.
Number 3 is correct.
Rationale: Abdominal cramping and discomfort are possible if the enema flow rate is too rapid. The nurse should briefly stop the flow and restart at a slower rate. Squeezing the enema bag to increase the flow rate exacerbates client discomfort and could result in reflux or vomiting. A PRN pain medication should not be necessary at the proper flow rate.
