Rectal Instillation of Meds

We have seen a recent uptick in the ordering of vancomycin to be administered rectally as a retention enema. I haven't had much luck finding best practices for nursing procedure. Does anyone have a policy or resource they can share? I've reached out to Flexiseal (rectal tube) as this seems like the best option that I have found so far.
