802.11 refers to IEEE code section.

In Reply to: trying to chose a laptop, please, re connection and speed - sm

These are the people who write the specs for how wireless works. 802.11a is the first generation, 802.11b, second, etc. The latest, I believe, is now 802.11g. While speed is important, and improved in the newer generations, it's also important to know what protocol the router uses as some types are not compatible. Your best bet would be to read up on the subject online by trying a site like www.howstuffworks.com. Do a search for wireless networking.

Osteo refers to bone. Ostial refers to a narrowing of an artery.
She refers to other posts
in whichever one she is RUINING at that moment. Laura Bush, President Bush, WMD, Iraq, Katrina, doctors, who should be MTs, etc. Usually nothing she is saying in either post has much to do with what the thread is really about. She just always turns it around so that she can spread her negativity to as many threads as possible. I don't have time for this. Turning the 'puter off for the night. Hopefully I will still be allowed to post when I check back in tomorrow. LOL. I just had to say something. Thanks for agreeing ss!
Refers to 2 different processes?

I believe that we are actually talking about two different processes.  Regarding the law about electronic medical records, I thought that referred to the push that all records be accessible electronically whether transcribed by a live person or not. 

The other system is the point and click program, which is already in use in some doctor's offices, ERs, etc.  I don't know if it's available for acute care reports, but I personally know of at least one doctor's office and one ER that uses it exclusively, with no live MTs or editors.

Please correct me if I'm wrong. 

Refers to 2 different processes
One of our local clinics uses the point and click system. I was talking to a podiatrist about it and he said when he receives a patient's record it is a mess and about all it gives is a diagnosis. It is coming and I don't know anything we can do about it, but it is terrible. If the shoe was on the other foot, I don't think the doctors would like it very much!
A platform usually refers to the the program
Distance is a factor but box OP refers to sm

makes a difference as well. I have been in this house for 10 years, and while we are probably 2 miles at most down the "line," we are unable to get DSL because the equipment and lines to our house are old and outdated. We didn't even have caller ID until about 6 years ago when they finally updated the box for this area. We are on a dirt road and were told recently that they will not be putting in DSL here, and the only way we will get high-speed is if we see them laying fiberoptic cable. We thought we might get lucky a couple of years ago when they started putting in 1000 houses across from us, but with the housing bust, that has been derailed also. So for now, I will have to be happy with my Sprint EVDO service.

*Ebonics* refers to the street slang, etc. (often heard in -sm
rap music, etc. Lots of white people, Hispanics, and even some Asians (all gangsta' wannabes) speak Ebonics as well. It's practically a second language in itself, so referring Ebonics-speakers to ESL isn't off the mark at all.
From their help section
Keyword: any_keyword
Text to Type: This is {@KEY Ctrl+B}bold{@KEY Ctrl+B}.

You can use the same concept to add any formatting codes to your ShortHand text.
PLUS I DID try the help section (sm)

in Word AND I have a copy of Word For Dummies (which I am sure you would think is quite appropriate)  BUT I did not think to look up SELECT TEXT.  I looked up DELETING text which is what I thought I wanted to do not thinking that I had to SELECT if FIRST.

I said at the outset that I was Word challenged and if that annoys you then just ignore my post. 


Have you had a C-section?
I don't know about you, but I took the full eight weeks off that is alloted for a c-section. I was in incredible pain. I can't imagine only taking two weeks off. Then again, I also worked another job that actually gave me disability checks so I guess I'm in a different boat altogether. I also had a tubal ligation at the same time. I was in the hospital for almost a week and I coudn't walk for at least a month without severe pain. I guess I'm just a wimp. LOL.

Hee-hee!  I have a funny one, too.  My dictator says routinely "I sent the patient to see the breast-feeding nurses."  All I can visualize is nurses sitting in a room, breast-feeding! 

There is a medicolegal section on
the job board . . . rarely any new jobs there, but if you go to the Job Seeker's Board and then Job Bank, it is one of the choices there.
Two weeks, c-section.
No one else to cover for me. I took it slow and accounts were patient with me--it helps that one was an ob/gyn. :)

You might have done one of the following:
Inserted a manual page break (page break: The point at which one page ends and another begins. Microsoft Word inserts an "automatic" (or soft) page break for you, or you can force a page break at a specific location by inserting a "manual" (or hard) page break.). Switch to normal view (normal view: A view that shows text formatting and a simplified page layout. Normal view is convenient for most editing and formatting tasks.), select the manual page break, and then press DELETE.

Set a pagination option. The following pagination options (Keep lines together, Keep with next, or Page break before) control where automatic page breaks occur.

To remove the pagination formats from text, select the paragraph following the unwanted page break, click Paragraph on the Format menu, and then click the Line and Page Breaks tab. If necessary, clear the Keep lines together, Keep with next, and Page break before check boxes.

Inserted a section break (section break: A mark you insert to show the end of a section. A section break stores the section formatting elements, such as the margins, page orientation, headers and footers, and sequence of page numbers.). The Next page, Even page, or Odd page section break automatically breaks the page.

To prevent a section break from breaking the page, click in the section (section: A portion of a document in which you set certain page formatting options. You create a new section when you want to change such properties as line numbering, number of columns, or headers and footers.) immediately following the section break, and then click Page Setup on the File menu. Click the Layout tab, and then click Continuous in the Section start box.

Inserted a column break. A column break inserted in the last column of a page will act as a page break. Select the column break, and then press DELETE.

There is an entire section on this

or am I the only one experiencing this....

about two or three days ago, I've noticed that when I go to the main board, other forum or topic options were not listed on the blue portion of the page, and it feels weird to go back to the home page every time I want to change topic/section.

Going back to work after c-section
I returned to work two weeks after my c-section working 6 hours per day. I however made sure to get out of the chair frequently so as to not get so stiff from sitting for so long, which does happen so soon after a c-section. I wouldn't go back to soon though, as it can be very stressful with a new baby and a job to tend to on top of it all.
According to the Answers.com section of Monster.com
"Dr. Phil McGraw won a football scholarship and played as a linebacker for the University of Tulsa, but when he was injured he quit and transferred to Midwestern State University. He graduated with a B.A. in psychology in 1975, and went on to get his PhD. from the University of North Texas in 1979. He is also a pilot, with a multi-engine rating."

. . . . and what are your educational credentials, my dear?
I use a plastic storage bin and cut a section out for him to ...sm

get in and out.  I do not use the lid.  It has nice, high sides, room to turn around and I usually try to keep 3 inches of liter in it.  

I have 2 other 'regular' size cats who use the standard liter boxes just fine but my big guy only uses his big, roomy custom box.  I also replace it about every 5-6 months.  I wish you and your kitty all the best! 

Please let us know what the vet says.

Either create it in the header section of

page set up or use a hard return after it and a page break at the end. Center text below the hard return but above the page break and leave a regular line at the bottom of the page.  I would then copy it and paste it however many times I needed a report for then go back to the first and start filling in.

Hope this helps.

Try melatonin over-the-counter in your vitamin section.
Doctors I worked with got me hooked on it. They said they used it themselves.  Doctors know the side effects of chemical drugs and steer away from them when it comes to taking drugs.  Anyway do a search on Google about melatonin.  It may work for you and it really has no side effects for me, like the grogginess prescription drugs give you the morning after you take a pill to sleep.
I was working PT at home one week after my C-section and

Re: Limited warranty on Equipment (stars); their legal people pretty much covered their ass. However, based on my experience with IPs, if you keep plugging away (it may takes months), eventually they will tire, thus removing said charges. Again, be prepared for a long battle and make sure to document everything, and I do mean everything. Please keep me posted.
Check Best Buy, business computer section...

Try the "support" section of the manufacturer's website.
Meanwhile... my favorite cure for just about everything, that seems to work more often than not, is to shut everything down, and I do mean everything--turn off the printer, turn off the computer it's attached to, take out the paper and put it back in, maybe even take out the ink cartridge and put it back in, maybe even disconnect the printer (with the power OFF!) and reconnect it; then turn everything back on, in the normal order, and see if that cures the problem. Sometimes when things haven't been powered down in a while, or a computer hasn't been shut down and restarted, things can get confused internally. No, that's not a very technical explanation, but I once had a programmer tell me to shut down and reboot the server at least once a month because if you don't, it "can't find the top of its own desk." (Guess that IS a technical explanation.)

If that doesn't work, I don't know what to tell you... try tech support on the manufacturer's website.

Is there something wrong.
Need MT section on this board to post line rates sm

and what company to help turn things around in this industry, meaning, the 4,5,6,7,8 9 etc per line which is grossly under paying if one takes the time to figure, how many lines, how many lines per hour, per minute, per second to make HOW MUCH PER HOUR.  This is the key, how much per hour you make.

With a list of where to refer to, it helps curb this slave labor mentality.

THE MTs NEED A SECTION ON THIS BOARD to list going rates so the industry becomes more competitive and not at our expense with all this " supply 3 phones, supply long distance TO THEM. BUY THIS AND PROVIDE THIS TO THEIR COMPANY.  Buy this license, this software.

I had major hair loss after my C-section last year. I was told that it was due to the (sm)

anesthesia.  My hairstylist recommended Redken Extreme Shampoo and Conditioner. There is also a leave in treatment to stop breakage.  I get it from JCPenney's.  I think you can get it cheaper from any of the outlet stores.    I noticed an immediate decrease in the amount of hair loss and now after 3 months it is finally starting to look better..  My son was born one year ago this month and my hair loss continued until around Christmas when I started using the Redken products. My doctor told me that it would probably only last during the first 3 months, but  it lasted much longer than that.     I hope this helps.

As for working at home, it may be more comfortable, but not when your butt is planted in the same chair at your desk for 12-16 hours a day, 7 days a week, and the rest of the world goes on without you. Not a perk, in my book.
Tag code?
Not sure what you mean by tag code.
Tax code
In Ohio, since there is no actual code that reflects transcription, we use 99999. Worked for me with no problems.
Used to code

Coding is a game where the rules constantly change and they won't tell you what they are - but will gladly penalize you and your employer because you "should have known" all the rules they won't tell you.  They actually have codes that are "blacked out" - in other words, they know what the right code is that will cause them to pay for a procedure, but its a secret beknownst only to them.  "They" being the federal government - they say "ignorance of the rules is no excuse" but won't tell the rules.  You fly by the seat of your pants.  You can attend seminars all year long but still not know if you're doing it right.  You live in constant fear of a Medicare audit where they will find the wrong code and accuse you and your employer of fraud, fine/jail the both of you, and pull the doctor's license. In transcription - the blame for errors ultimately goes to the doctor.  In coding - the blame gets spread around.  If that sounds like fun, go ahead.

Where do you put the code?
code key
The code key that goes with the software is probably triggered to tell it that it's already been installed once.  It's an anit-piracy device.  What you may need to do is call the software support line for the software and explain the situation.  They may be able to give you a new code key for the installation.
Code of Conduct
This thing is REALLY for the ones that got all the lawsuits started, now WE have to suffer. At least we get paid for probably the most boring hour on earth!!
Also, see what diagnosis code
they used to bill.  Might have been billed as a screening and that's sometimes a no-no as far as getting things paid.  Obviously, you can't lie, but see if she had any symptoms at all that might justify the test.
