Telling Time as a Unit Secretary (Video)

Hospitals use military time when it comes to documentation. It was first used to keep medication errors from happening. Questioning whether or not a life-saving medication is supposed to be given at 9:00am or 9:00pm is not something anyone wants to ponder.

So to keep that from happening, hospitals use military time, which documents 9:00am as 0900 and 9:00pm as 2100. 

Now I'm not saying that medication errors no longer happen. If it does, it's because of human error and not time error.
