When observing an ostomate (a person who has had an ostomy) do a return demonstration of the colostomy irrigation, the nurse notes that he needs more teaching if he:
  •    Stops the flow of fluid when he feels uncomfortable
  •    Lubricates the tip of the catheter before inserting it into the stoma
  •    Hangs the bag on a clothes hook on the bathroom door during fluid insertion
  •    Discontinues the insertion of fluid after only 500 ml of fluid has been instilled
