Might want to scoop some into a Baggie and take them to the local nursery/garden center to ID. nm
Check around your local area for clinics or transcription companies
That's what I did. I first started out working for a very small MTSO and worked at their office for a couple of weeks and then they moved me home and I started working on a single speciality account. I'm still working for the office after 5 years (altough the MTSO closed her business).
Check free dowloads center.
Check out M-TEC online school. Seriously the
I attended it and had absolutely no problem finding a job.  If your GPA stays above 93% you have almost limitless options for employment after graduation.  It's a tough course, but that is why it prepares you so well for this VERY tough job!  They also cover technology issues.  Good luck, and I'm sorry you had a bad experience with a bad school.  I would recommend finding a school that helps with job placement once you graduate.
We like Dell. Go online and check (sm)

out prices when you configure what you want in yours.  We ordered our daughter one for Christmas and she's thrilled.  It was under $500 with an Intel Core-Duo processor, flat screen, etc.  Good price.

Try RadioShack (can check them online), transcriptiongear.com or transcriptionwarehouse.com. nm
Check with your local phone company....sm

More and more phone companies are offering fast access DSL which works through your phone line.  Satellite is very expensive and often has problems when there are storms.  I had cable which also goes down practically every time it rains.  I just got Bell South Xtreme DSL.  I can't believe how fast it is.  AND I got a wireless network router so if I have 1 computer or 20... no extra charge.  All this for about $50.00 a month.

Check out your local community college -SM
I can't speak for all of them, but the one I went to offered externship programs and job placements for their best and brightest students.  An acquaintenance of mine also got her MT training at a local college, and they did the same thing.  Be careful, however, of the online courses.  They cost a lot of money - much, much more than your local college, and you won't get the hands-on training or be able to get your questions answered in a flash with them as you would in an actual college setting.  Also, an associate's degree at a college is much more impressive than admitting you received your training via an online course.  That, to me, just sounds so "fly by night."   
Be sure to check your local emergency services regarding 9-1-1 sm
Just saw a news story that 9-1-1 is not set up yet on these systems to pull up the home address with the phone call. Just an FYI.
Check your local police station, that'd be the place to look.
I bet they don't outsource that.....or do they? Interesting.
I say go with the online records searches - I had some "fishy" stuff I needed to check out.
Tried it on my own via the courts, court clerks, public records, etc., and it took me days and days of weeding, and found out a smidge of info.  Went online and paid $9.95 at one of the common search sites, and found out PAYDIRT! So much info, and all turned out true, that I was amazed! Best $10 I ever spent! This was on a "relative" who was trying to pull a con on an elderly relative.  The elderly relative still fell for the con, but my conscience is free, cause I warned her up front.  Everything we feared has come to pass, but at least we tried to give warnings up front. Found out aliases, financial info as in legal charges for bad checks, property titles, and a whole bunch more! For $10 and all on one form! Then called the court clerks back and verified all info, but I had to have the info first - backwards, as usual!
Check into adoption through local Catholic services, fees in our state (Ky) were based on income and
although expensive, not as bad as private adoption.  Still, a long wait, we were told.
Check the connections from where the cable originates to wear it comes into the house. Also check t
had a similar issue with TWC and they had done some upgrades and the modem I had was no longer compatible.  The tech knew what the problem was the minute he saw the modem, only it took me about 3 months and threatening to cancel for them to get out here. 
No brainer here. Stop payment on first check before you issue 2nd check.
I have had a check bounce over a boo-boo in the check book...NOT A DEADBEAT!!
DID you check with Social Security& does your son receive a check???

Go to SSA.gov and research the payee options.  You may have to use the search engine, but your answer to this particular issue should be there.

I am disabled and while my kids were minors, I had to fill out a form each year on how I, as the payee spent each and every penny of the money they received.  I don't see how his mother can justify how she spent his money for things that you normally would pay.

That said, he is getting Social Security right?  Is your son receiving a dependent check?  Under law, if a parent is disabled and has minor children, each and every one of those children also receive a check until they turn 18 or graduate from high school, which ever comes first.

The check is a percentage of your husbands, so for 800.00, your son should receive at least 350.00.  If you have not been getting this, they would pro-rate it back to when your husbands disability started and that in itself, could solve a lot of your financial problems.  You can also find this out on their website,  HTH

No, not at all. Brand new Super Center, nice area. But have never seen the stickers.
America Online has a huge call center in India too.

no - don't check out wildblue. check out hughesnet. sm
i was on wildblue. i absolutely HATED it. i paid $400 for install and equipment and bill was $51.51 a month for smallest plan. no bills, had to be direct debit from credit card or bank. wasn't a lot faster than dial up and i frequently went over my download limit so i had to upgrade to the $80/mo plan. speed was no faster on their "fastest plan". they had a 1-yr contract and only 1-yr warranty. well 20 days (kid you not) out of warranty my tria (the eye on the dish) went out and it cost me a total of $275 for replacement and tech call (had to wait a week and a half before tech could come and then he no showed and rescheduled for the next day stating he didn't have the equipment he needed to fix me and the repair order had been in for over a week by that time. no call to say he wasn't coming either, just no showed). they TRIED to sell me the entire package all over again to get me locked into another 1-yr contract and i declined. it was best in their book so your warranty and equipment would be "new". i had to tell them for 5 months to change which credit card to debit from, never could get it right. had to tell them for 3 months when my phone number changed. i could not wait until the day my 1-yr contract was over. have heard really good things about hughesnet. i think it is a tad more a month, but supposedly a lot faster than wildblue and not near as many problems from what i have heard from others. wildblue was down for an entire week at one point throughout the year i was on it. always got lost signals and page cannot be found multiple, multiple times throughout the day. i used wildblue with VPN (with transtech) and could not keep a connection enough to get a decent line count as i was dropping signals too much and it did slow it way down. i finally got clinic work rather than acute care where time and speed wasn't a factor. research message boards for complaints about wildblue and hughesnet before deciding. also hughesnet i think told me a 2-yr warranty rather than only the 1-yr with wildblue.

E-bay.  Some companies will provide them for free or a small rental fee. 
look for a small local company in your area


I worked for a small company and although I did get paid by the line, I made way more than $16 an hour and could pretty much name my own hours to work. I did, however, have to pick up tapes!

i forwarded it to our local tv stations in my area. nm
Local AAMT chapters probably do it. Or put out an invite to those in your area. :) nm
Yes, call your local vet, any vet, and ask for the wild rabbit rescuer in your area.
There is always someone nearly everywhere. If you can't find one, please write me and I'll search for someone for you if you're short on time.  They are so worth saving.  Mom might still be around. Let's hope so! 
Outrageous. I just forwarded to a local radio station in my area. Who else can we send this to?

your dictionary or autocorrect and see if it is set to capitalize the first letter in a sentence.

i think it is just that, though, an annoyance. 

Thank you! Will check them out now.
My check was for over $400, but certainly does not
come close to the money I have lost since going on docqscribe.  I think corporate should provide us with the statistics they used to arrive and this amount.  The @#$#@ crooks!
Thanks, I will check that out. You would
think that would be illegal (to pay for one line count and bill for another) so they would be a little more discreet......
Check for DQS
Wonder if the discrepancy in pay on DQS is MQ wide or just certain regional offices cause I havent gotten anything yet and I dread having to contact my TC.  Does anyone know?
Why did you get a check$?
and nobody told us?

Come to India, much MT work for you.
MQ DEP check ?

Anyone heard from their MQ office what this check amount was based on and why it wasn't direct deposit like others if you are on direct deposit??

MQ DEP check
reason it wasn't DD, my opinion, is that if we cash it, we are "settling" any past underpayments. It has to do with the lawsuit. I my check yesterday, and I will deposit it probably. By my cashing it, I did not sign or agree to anything and the letter doesn't state anything about dismissing them from any further legal action. I think they sent the checks to make them look good, like they are trying to be honest and forthright about the discrepancies. A little late...
What check?
I have been with MQ for 14 years and I never got this check, is it for everyone?
emailed payroll and asked for a detailed printout of how this figure was derived and she said that corporate told her that it would take probably 2-3 weeks (you and I both know it's probably more like 2-3 months). we have a right to know how it was gotten and if I were you I'd do the same so that they know that we're just not a bunch of dummies who just take what they give us without an explanation that will satisfy us.
MQ check
I only glanced at the letter that came with the check but it said something about the DQS counting making mistakes and they were "sorry for any inconvenience this caused."   Not a word about there never being enough WORK to matter whether the counting was right or not.  Prior to DQS in 7 years I NEVER ran out of work.  Didn't hang around long enough to see if their promises were true that we would soon be making so much money that we couldn't spend it all. LOL
"legally" any company has the right to withhold payment for 30 days. I found that out by accident, as well. ... through a company also in California. I would suggest, after attempting a telephone conversation first, that you speak with a lawyer and begin litigation. You are owed what you did work for. Good luck to you.
Check out!!!
I am in India my lovely. Come be with me. Check out. You love it. That for sure.
Check out!!!
You hurt feelings. Why you be mean to me. Check out the website and if you go to MT training, you see picture of me and my friend. That be me and you in a month if you like.
Thanks! I will check it out! nm

YOU: I am wondering if the hospital gives medications according to what is in the H&P

ANSWER: No, they don't.

YOU: if they operate on the wrong leg if the doctor dictates that.

ANSWER: No. The body part is marked ahead of time with witnesses and there is what is called a "time out" before surgery that is documented on the surgical record to assure the correct part (and patient) is being dealt with.

YOU: How many patients die from dictation and transcription mistakes?

ANSWER: I have never known of any.

YOU: Does the hospital have medication records for nurses that are handwritten?

NO: Computer generated, which lists contraindications, incompatible drugs, etc, and is checked by a pharmacist and the nurse who gives the med. There are some meds that need two RN signatures to be given.

YOU: Do surgeons check other sources before they operate?

ANSWER: See above about marking body parts and "time outs".

As an RN, I can tell you that the transcribed record plays a very small part of in-house patient care. In my opinion, accurate office notes are of more importance than the in-house record that is used mostly for billing and insurance purposes and not patient care.
