no trap in shower drain

I recently installed a shower drain and we didn't put a trap in the drain for some unknown reason as we installed one in the sink the same day. It's in the basement, so it's allready concreted in and the drain is allready set in the shower. I was wondering if there is any way I can avoid smashing concrete again because we allready had to move the roughed in toilet drain and it wasn't fun.
The shower drain joins in with the toilet drain and they both drain into the tub with a sewage pump. I was thinking maybe a some kind of check valve where the drain comes into the sewage ejector?

Just making sure before a break out my sledgehammer again.

I agree with both snswers unless you want your sewer and maybe your neighbors sewer venting into your home.
