When successful, irrigation offers a regular, predictable elimination pattern and only a small covering is needed for security between irrigations. Methods Colostomy irrigation may also be taught by nurses in long-term-care facilities. Irrigation is performed by administering an enema through the colostomy using a colostomy irrigation set rather than an enema set. Ms. G's nurse discusses the rationale for colostomy irrigation—the colostomy produces effluent with no natural control of the outflow.
