Bowel Training has two goals:
To gain control of bowel movements.
To develop a regular pattern of elimination. Fecal impaction, constipation, and fecal incontinence are prevented.
A suppository is a cone-shaped, solid drug that is inserted into a body opening. It melts at body temperature. A nurse inserts a rectal suppository into the rectum. A bowel movement occurs about 30 minutes later.
