    How about hour= hour
    minute=minute
    and seconds=seconds?
    Reduces error, ambiguity, and confusion?

    Just my 2 cents...

    I like this way much better. I agree with JCAHO's goal to reduce error by having "do not use" abbreviations. There are a lot of abbreviations that look like one another and it just gets confusing! With computer charting their is really no need to use abbreviations as much.
