    Abbreviations should only be used when the intended audience is thoroughly familiar with them. Reports to the patients should not contain abbreviations.

    okay- but can this pratice increase serious errors, thus cause medical harm

    Yes, using abbreviations can cause serious harm if they are misinterpreted. Abbreviations on billings for insurance companies may be o.k., though.
