apparently, times have changed (sm)

that behavior would be very dangerous today.  Even just 10, 20 years ago, the world was much safer than it is now.  There's no way my daughter would go off alone like that.  I don't blame Natalee's parents, though.  The only person or persons to blame is the one or ones who took this girl and saw fit to destroy her. It's their fault, no one elses.  In a perfect world, we could let our children go and not worry about them, but unfortunately, ours is not perfect.  It's just sad that so many sick people are free to roam among us in society, be it in our country or somewhere else.  We should just pray for the family and for Natalee, and for the people responsible for this horrible tragedy.  Pray that God will put it in their heart to tell the truth, tell where she is at, so her family can move on. That's what we all need to be doing right now!

Hasn't happened yet.

Has your pay already been cut by MQ?  I am an IC for MQ and this has not happened to me yet.  Is it a proven fact that this is going to happen or just speculation?

My son is only 7, so he hasn't caught on yet
that I'm not talking to him. He still says "what" all the time...lol. So, I'll look at him and say, "do you know what flagginationalization means?" Cracks him up every time.
Very little hasn't changed...sm

since the beginning of time. It's not just the 'religious fanatics' who have changed. The human race has evolved in their beliefs since Adam and Eve. Christians don't follow the rules of the Old Testament per se, because Jesus fulfilled the laws. There aren't too many religions who still make animal sacrifices. A woman who is having her period is no longer considered unclean. Pork is not considered taboo in the Christian faith, and Catholics aren't limited to eating only fish on Fridays. There were religions who believed in human sacrifice, but I doubt that goes on very much any more.

People have evolved in that we no longer believe the world is flat. We don't believe you are going to get AIDS by touching someone who has it. We no longer believe that a woman who is having her period can't go swimming.

Who believes the same things they believed when they were six? How different are your beliefs than your parents? Not just about religion, but about anything.

I see it as a career BUT so far it hasn't ...sm
paid like a career. I hope that will change the more exp I get.
How do you know the physician hasn't
reported it. No, I do not believe it is our place to do so.
Your sister hasn't been looking in the right places. (sm)
There are companies that hire coders to work at home. Tell her to try www.aviacode.com, www.lexicode.com, www.amphionmedical.com, www.btcworldwide.com, and www.peakhs.com. Tell her to subscribe to the AHIMA jobs board. They have plenty of jobs (some are in-house and some are work at home). Hope this helps.
Central FL hasn't increased at all yet. nm
Dixie also hasn't worked as an MT (sm)
for years and years. Weird stories about that woman!
MQ has no work. Hasn't had for many days. What are you being

There are requirements for insurance if you are FT

There are requirements for certain equipment if SE

I can't seem to get anything in writing from them, the rules are fluid.

What are you all being told?

She hasn't filed for a divorce yet -

Because the state she lives in does not recognize legal separation, she had an agreement drawn up by her corporate atty.  This agreement handed the house (quick claim deed) and business over to her, while her "future ex" draws his pension and moved to warmer weather (California).  This all happened when things were friendly. Now she wants a divorce so she can get on with her life (with her new beau she is buying the house with).  BAD idea since she has not filed for a divorce.  Anyway, thanks everyone.  I think I'll be visiting her in jail.    

he hasn't actually said, "i killed her." He has only stated, "i was with her when she d
i think he is totally obsessed with the case. whether he did it or not, i am not sure. he can't give details?? the puzzle i am not fitting is the 118,000 ransom note that patsy new about. he has admitted it was a hostage gone wrong. i am wondering if maybe somehow he and patsy worked together on this one and now the reasoning it is coming out since patsy is no longer here. he lived in Georgia where they did but jonbenet was a baby at that time. it states that were vaginal abrasions but no semen? maybe that was a cover up to make it look like an intruder but they kinda left out an item called semen to make it real. makes me wonder if her hymen was intact. he is saying he drugged and raped her but yet autopsy says no drugs in her system.
You can't transcribe what hasn't been dictated. I don't see
He hasn't EARNED our respect. (nm)
Too bad it hasn't dawned on her that paying you
Major 'duh' for her.
It hasn't crashed your computer?
or let any bad 'gremlins' in to get your information? That's mostly what I'm afraid of.

And thanks for your response.
No it hasn't. It's still owned by Ahmed

One who hasn't forgotten that subordinates are
Why hasn't Mayo clinic signed on with a large
Like Spheris or Medquist??? What is so special about them?
Why hasn't anybody invented a mouse that is operated with our feet?

It hasn't been allowed since HIPAA. MT companies who outsource...
get away with it because they don't tell their clients, and internet wav file capabilities enable them to do so without anyone knowing. Some policy and investigation needs to be enforced to stop this. I say start slapping companies who outsource with huge fines and see how long we have to deal with outsourcing problems. What gets me most is "I can't even get a copy of my own medical record from my doc unless he has a release of medical records form signed by myself on file in my chart, but a doctor can dictate John Smith's medical history, send it to a company who in turns sends it out of the country and back here! Ridiculous.
This site is not working correctly and hasn't all day long. Someone needs to fix it!
I don't know who, but the administrator should know.
It hasn't been called AAMT in a long time. nm
But, in our case, 'credentialling' hasn't made ONE IOTA
In fact, just the opposite has happened. It's just a pocket-lining scheme, and nothing more. We had plenty of respect and a decent income back in the day when we had no 'CMT' scam going on. It isn't being credentialled I have a problem with - it's the group claiming that it's 'necessary', who is trying to get it mandated, and who would ultimately PROFIT IMMENSELY if that were to come about. But would WE profit? Nuh-uh. It hasn't made being an MT (credentialled or not) a better or more rewarding career, and if fact, just the opposite. So I SERIOUSLY DOUBT that if they were to succeed in making it mandatory that only CMTs could work, that those MTs would derive any viable benefit from obtaining the title. Most likely things would just get worse.
West Coast Hasn't see the show yet. Please keep this in mind next time. NM
Can we PLEASE desist using "NOT!" in this manner? It hasn't been funny since ྔ. nm
Word hasn't capped after a colon since the 2000 version.
You have to manually cap with shift key or run a macro at the end of the report. You can also hit shift+f3 to change the case to upper.
Anybody been fired from an mt job?
You won't get fired for this.
Relax! Accidents happen to everybody, especially when training on something new. All you need to do is send an e-mail briefly explaining you had 2 technical problems and providing job numbers or whatever you know about them. Then say, "Very sorry!"

It sounds like you are doing fine.

(And I'm supposedly the mean one). @@

Won't be fired.
Why continue doing something that isn't making money. Why take a paycut? I will not take a paycut. I am paid little as it is. If I take a cut in pay, might as well go work at the local Wal-Mart. JMO.
I'm sure it would come as a relief to be fired.
What an ego!  Hasta la vista, baby!
And get fired? LOL You first, Satan. LOL

Just fired a doctor
I just fired one of my doctors and I feel so much better!  I'm an IC and this office has been a royal pain!  Very late payments, constantly losing reports and blaming me for not transcribing them, never letting me know when they'd be off (wasting my gas and time), getting behind on dictating and then wanting 5+ days of dictation back in twelve hours, etc.  The final straw was when they started making me go in the waiting room and stand at the sign-in window behind all their patients to drop off work.  Of course, if they were on the phone, I'd have to wait even longer when I reached the window... at times up to twenty minutes before the receptionist would open the window and take the work.  I decided my other offices appreciate me too much to allow that one office to treat me like a second class citizen.  To top it off -- what did the wife say when I fired him?  "You can't do that -- you need the money."  Too bad for her, because their money isn't worth my self-respect!
Fired a doctor
I am proud of you.
to just fired a doctor, way to go!

Reading your post sort or reminded me of those new DHL commercials on customer service (or the lack of).

When I worked in office, our old fashioned German boss would never have allowed anyone to wait..if he was running 30 minutes late, we moved every body back 45...those were the good ol days.

Well I Just Got fired so it does not matter !!!!
Back to the office for me thank god I had a plan B !!!!
Fired from one and moved to another
What is the point
No, but I've fired quite a few.
In my state you can be fired
for absolutely no reason, probably works the same as hiring. Like in my original post, I passed and told lose 20 lbs- I did not get out of sorts- I felt their loss and went on really to much better things- the telephone companies started laying off right and left so it was a blessing probably in disguise. There was no disgusing for me- literally told that- where in your case it seems like assuming on your part this is what they are thinking.
job stress. die or get fired.

i am quite upset.  one of my co-workers passed away.  we here all know it was from job stress, but we are not to admit it and were repremanded so by our superiors.  basically it came down to "die or get fired".  lucky for her she died before she could get fired.

now i am sitting here at work today wondering what the heck am i supposed to do? we cannot talk about the job stress and that is what did her in, but she was sick and getting sicker and this is why she passed away.  she was sick and getting sicker from the stress dawg-gone it. 

nobody gets it.

tuesday she told me that a lot of her sickness had to do with wondering if she was going to have a job or not and what would she do if she got fired?  she was beside herself with worry.  she worked her for 25 years, and was a good employee and excellent Transcriptionist until the new supervisor took over and started ragging on her like a pit bull dog and his prey.  and this is a catholic hospital.  i guess this is the new christian work ethic.

i need to vent.  any comments would be appreciated but since i am at work please make them nice.  i have had enough bad stuff happen around here today.






But... MTs like that would get, sooner or later, FIRED..
don't you think?
Can you get fired for doing too much work?

Has anyone been fired for getting too much work done?  I have been making at least the third bonus tier for the last couple of checks (I have also been working OT), so I am afraid that it might look more pleasing to fire me and hire 2 PT workers that don't make the bonuses and don't qualify for benefits.  Has anyone heard of any companies doing this?  I have only been with my company for 9 months, and since I am the only one bringing in a pay check right now, I am getting really nervous.  Any managers that read this, I more than welcome hearing from you as well.  I just want to know if I should be concerned or if I can ease off the worry a little.  Thanks!!

Only once have I seen a coworker fired and that was due to
the client no longer wanting the MT on the account. This MT was also a high producer, management raved about this person's high numbers while we gasped everytime we saw their work as it was riddled with careless errors, had no format and extra spaces and lines, uneven margins made their work look like the work of an amateur.

It took just under a year for the client to finally say something. In the meantime, I was accused of being "jealous because they made more money."

Type each report like it is the only way. Make it look like a page out of a medical journal and sign it off with love :) The benefit then comes from having people look to see who typed should a great report. Off days occur, of course, and that is when we should slow down.
You can be fired for any reason they want. sm
They don't even have to have a reason but it doesn't show well for a company to just randomly fire.

Has anyone been fired or dismissed on an account
So frustrated when you ask for help and people do not help who have experience.. Oh well
Korea fired SIX (6) missles

very worried here about NK's intentions now............

Korea just fired off it's 7th missle......sm
Cherry pickers should be FIRED!!
If your co-worker was any kind of a true MT she would grow up and do whatever came up in her q. Tell your supervisor! I wish I knew this idiots phone number. It really ticks me off when people cherry pick. You have my sympathy girl.
When her EMPLOYER tells her she is fired, is she going
I guess you can refuse and be fired and then
be making no money.
Not fired but at 2 places I worked
First place worked on something called units. I would usually go over 50 a day and was told 1 day if anyone got over 50 then would stop and do paper work. Told the boss that would be discrimination against me as I was the only 1 doing over 50. So much for that. The second place was 2 transcriptions only for a fairly good sized hospital. No work sent out, no need for extra people. I was told 1 day by human resources- well look how much you make at 60 thous plus and I said, yes but take the place of 2-3 people. Your pay can and has played into my work in the past. People used to offer incentive, but donít make too much. Could be the same now with making $$$$.
