An rn is not needed when someone has a bm.  He or she needs to be clened up by somebody.  When a quad is impacted or is having a problem illiminating an rn assists orinserts two fingers into anus to aid in process.

A quadriplegic would have a colostomy bag fitted, which would collect all there bodily waste. A Nurse would be required to remove the bag when full and replace it with a fresh one .  Hope this helps .
