suggestions now would you. There would be an entry and it would be correct. Also there are still some places that don't do voice files through the internet so it wouldn't matter if the internet was down or not.
Obviously there IS A place for the internet but to say you can't or won't use books anymore is crazy!

Sted's Ortho Words, a lab words book, at least 1 drug book, and your AAMT BOS 2nd
I wish people wouldn't be so encouraging. Then maybe we wouldn't constantly run
At my company I'd ask for $18; probably wouldn't get it, but I wouldn't go lower. nm
What law? There's no law. There was a book (sm)
by a conservative that came out, which is what started this whole heightened nonsense over Merry Christmas vs. Happy Holidays. That book has effected a nice smokescreen to get away from the real issues plaguing the party, such as illegal wiretapping.
maybe in your book but not for an MT who is a
They are in my book.
What are you writing, a book
About the book/tests - have you not ever sm
done any in-depth research into the field you are working in? Had you done that, you would have probably ended up at the AHDI site at some point (creator of the BOS) or MTChat or here - references to BOS and tests come up daily. How could you have been working and not know there was a BOS?
Re The Book of Style
Just a short note to say, you really need to learn the BOS, even if you don't think you need to, and no matter what anyone else tells you, for your own knowledge, you need to know the basics--the style basics. We all had/have to do it, you are not alone. It's all a part of the game. :)
I agree 100% with you. The book is sm
correct 99.9% of the time. Once in awhile you will find something wrong, but then you just write it in and change it. You never know on the internet. I don't think there is any substitute for sitting down with a book and doing research. I do understand that in this day and age it is not cost effective to do that. That is why I still believe that it is a disservice to MTs not to be able to work in-house for several years before going home!
a 1-hr window is NOT flexibility in my book.
Those of you that have the book, can you figure out what she is asking. I'm very curious too. B
That's fast in my book. I can't do that. Great job! :) nm
Correct - I don't want to write a book.
If you want more information, please email me. I can only say what I experienced.
All those are Negative points in my book! Keep looking, please! nm
So? BOS is just book by ladies with too much free
I seen a book on ebay or amazon once...sm
and it tells you how to start your own MT business. I was looking for reference books and it popped up. I had typed in medical transcription books or something like that.
Go to the library and check out the book
do you a lot of good to read that.
Book of Style 2nd Edition
This says without the apostrophe is preferred but that the apostrophe is acceptable if that is what's dictated and/or the client wants it that way.
This book was written well before Vista came out. sm
So to say no may not be correct. I would email Cheryl and just ask her. HTH!
Hot darn it is in the Ahdi book.
The only time QA makes me pound my head is when they are correct and it can be seen in print.
Also, the new Nuance 7.5 VR is so smart. . .it remembers corrections you make. The whole page(s). Start planning. . .this one is top notch. . .better than the first. No more overtime. No more parttimers.
source, please? In my hard book
Webster's there is only an e, no y. Need to know if this has changed and I don't trust Google on everything.
It is an open book 50 question quiz
I enjoyed taking it, may take the job if they offer, I need to get some additional memory in my computer but that should not be too difficult, about $35 for another 256MB.
Can anyone recommend a good reference book
for radiology. I just started on a rad account in training. I love it so far but would like a good radiology terminology book that especially contains terms for MRIs and CT scans. ALso, can anyone tell me what the average rate is per report for radiology? Thanks!
Some emails are missed and not in their address book
What?! Do you have your number listed in the phone book?
This is the same info they can get out of the phone book, i.e., name, address, and phone number. This is not what they use to commit identify theft. They would use the general information from your resume to phish for more detailed information, such as SS# or bank account/cc account info. This is also what they would get out of your trash if for some reason you don't shred this info before you throw it out. Also, with past employers, they are only allowed to give basic info, such as length of employment and whether you're eligible for rehire. They can be held legally responsible if they give out detailed information about you!
I am very realistic that I'm not immune to identify theft, but also I know the law and know that I shouldn't be paranoid about someone stealing my identity. I take the appropriate steps to protect myself and monitor my credit report frequently.
The book contains suggestions. They don't write the rules
they merely published them in a format convenient for us to review - save your anger for the JAHCO and the American Medical Association.
area cod is 877 (dont have phone book with me)
Those are definitely text book anxiety symptoms
You may want to see if you can get something for your anxiety; something that will not make you drowsy if you take it during the day. Good luck.
DocQscribe is the best in my book! You just type. Very easy, nm
Look in phone book or google for your area
Free legal aid or legal assistance. I know it exits in my area, southern California, I used it once.
This seems way out of line. Google attorney general for your state, here in California it is Jerry Brown and look for an email address and send in a question. I know I have read of scams in newspaper they have gone after, like the home loan modification scammer etc.
This is really really bad, so sorry it happened but don't give up, there must be a loop hole, how can that be OKAY??? Huh
Reference book, office supplies, equipment. nm
I type radiology and the ortho book helps
I also had to get a medical & surgical words book to help with some of the procedures. They were well worth the money - got mine on ebay pretty cheap.
I SAW a book on it once, too. It was called The Independent Medical Contractor.
I use Stedman's Orthopedic and Rehab Words book..
and Google is also a good research tool :)
Here is my advice.......RUN, do not walk to the nearest phone book. sm
Look up Legal Aid of whatever city or state you live in. They are a group of lawyers and paralegals that do work for free or sliding scale, etc. They will do all the leg work for you. You supply them with copies of your documentation and any other records you have kept regarding email, snail mail, or phone calls.
The most important thing... when you talk to and deal with these people, document, document, document. Document EVERYTHING
Then go to the Better Business Bureau and let them know what is going on.
Call your state Atty General's office and tell them what is going on and give them copies of any documentation you have.
Then I would quit. I know she probably can't afford to and it is experience she may not be able to get anywhere else, but as the post below said, they aren't going to give her a good reference anyway if they have not responded to her mail and phone calls.
Let us know how it goes. Keep us posted.
This book is going to change our lives and it is very important to share information with each other
Tessier Surgical Word Book is my bible, but mostly you need LOTS of patient
Sine you have access to the address book in Outlook just send the email to the entire team?
I wouldn't do it again...
I was trained on one portion of an account (4 new hospitals they got), and it was GREAT! I loved it, told my husband I was SO happy working with them. Then, training ended ... I got switched to the hospital I was hired for (although no one told me that during training), and OMG - it's AWFUL. I can't make a dime. It's either all ESLs that I absolutely cannot understand (and I've been doing ESLs for a long time), or English-speaking guys that are terrible. My rate has gone down tremendously. And, if you have tech problems - you have to e-mail tech support and wait for them to respond. So, like this weekend, I have tech problems and am sitting here with my thumb up my nose waiting for a dopey teckie to get on my problem. I begged them, in an e-mail of course, to CALL me so we could resolve the problem and I could get back to work. Still waiting for that phone call, and it's been since yesterday evening. So, no $$$. About a month ago, I would have told you - GREAT place to work. Right now, I'd have to tell you to RUN AWAY!
I wouldn't do it
To me these things are a big red flag about a company. My reaction would be that they are very controlling and if they are trying to control your speech on the Internet there will be many worse things to come.
I believe a lot of these companies make you jump through hoops, i.e., testing, paper work, etc. before they give you any answers about specifics just so you WILL feel like you have already invested a lot in time and emotion and will not turn back, which is another very good reason to not allow them to silence us on the Internet. There is very valid information to be shared about companies which is neither bashing nor praising but just that - information allowing us to make a decision about whether a company would be a good fit for us or not - BEFORE doing all the testing.
You must have some doubt in your mind about this or you would not be here asking the question. Go with your gut instinct. There are many good companies out there who do not impose these types of restrictions.
LOL - wouldn't last a day at TSI.. is that
supposed to be a compliment? LOL....
I wouldn't say that...sm
most companies do not say how much they pay because anyone that was any good would not even test then. They also do not base pay on how well you do on the test. You could ace it and still get offered 7 cpl because that is what they start at, no matter how much experience and knowledge you have. Raises are also few and far between. jmo
It took 7 weeks of my waiting around to get work and then they finally got me on an account and there was no work. One problem after another. Passed between departments, no one ever giving the complete story.
Sad way to run a business in my opinion.
I wouldn't even consider it!
There are MUCH better companies out there...and ones that pay every 2 weeks as opposed to monthly! I would NEVER take a job that paid only once a month!
...nm up there. Pay wouldn't go over 9 cpl not even with
I am an experienced MT with 30+ years of experience. I just left this company. First of all, they outsource ALL of the good job types/dictators to India. Secondly, whatever the Indians can't do, they send to ASR. If you are happy to be relegated to an ASR Editor making peanuts, or transcribing the really, really bottom of the barrel reports, then go for it. If you are looking for respect, honest and open communication, plus decent pay, I wouldn't touch this with a 10-foot pole. I wouldn't send my worst enemy to Precyse.
you wouldn't know...
you are not morbidly obese. Until you have lived a day in my shoes, save your opinions for someone who cares.
And they wouldn't be the only
I wouldn't run s/m
I would politely tell that recruiter where he could put his job and that would be where the sun doesn't shine! This should tell you what kind of integrity this company has. Congratulations to you for doing the right thing and giving appropriate notice.
P.S...... and I wouldn't be doing this for a
