Bladder Irrigation via IV Pump

Does anyone have familiarity with administration of a bladder irrigation via an infusion pump? I was asked about this practice today and in addition to obvious concerns over incorrect route errors, I am thinking that using an infusion pump for administration into the bladder may also be problematic. Any insight as to how others are doing this is appreciated.

Best,
Drew
