Serving Over 20,000 US Medical Transcriptionists

Discussed this with my boss yesterday

She said she had employees who are missionaries and as long as they maintain a legal residence in the US for tax purposes, she has no problem with it.

No, as an IC, I am my own boss. I contract out my transcribing services, but I am my own boss.
:)
Best thing - I am my own boss and my own emloyee, worse thing - I am my own boss and my own

:P

on various threads.  Do a quick search or e-mail admin.
this was just discussed on the
company board. Go to it and scroll down to about 6/19 with comment from Oh, yes, it a full moon for sure. I thought there was another one, too, but I did not see it. Good luck to you.
this is discussed below.

I didn't know it had been discussed either - sm
I don't visit here often.

I have two kids at home (12 and 13) and I roll in the morning and then start to slide at the half way point myself.

I start at 7:30 and take a break about 11:30 or so for lunch, then work some more.

If I am really dragging... I start day dreaming a bit. Okay, a lot. Means i have to go back and read everything more thoroughly but the typing part gets done a heckova lot faster.
Try a search as this has been discussed here before..

if you discussed (in ANY way) business, yes.
have a receipt with date.
This is the big problem here and what we discussed
Never had famine, still donít.I had 2 children and worked out of the home. How can you let yourself go downhill and just say I sit here trying to make it. That is why this profession has gone down because of no one wanting to leave the house to have a job, just want to sit at home because they have a child. What happens when no money at all, do you still just sit there trying to make it. I had more get up and go, I guess, than what I am reading on here now days. I always wanted to have things like a roof over my head, food for the family, nice vacations and I worked for it. No wonder the companies are offering less and less money to do this job because they have found people willing to wait on things. Before long the workers are going to have to pay the employers to have a job.
TOOOO MUCH!! Which is why it was discussed BEFORE we had kids! LOL
He is adament that the kids will have balance, structure and guides (apparnetly as long as his mother does not object)...fine by me as I was raised that way...however, trying to get a kid to face facts when they were told it was not their fault and they they should be in trouble.....well gee...that is not a recurring line I want used in the house and have yet to get him to admit he was wrong since she told him he was not!  Hence, huge morality issue he needs to learn for his life.   Talking to him all you get is "they say"  instead of I did, I was wrong, etc....she has it in his head he is right, they are wrong!!!!  Our actions are our doing whether good, bad or indifferent.   
It sounds like you and BF have discussed a split up.

At least that's what I think I read below in one of the posts.


The economy of our country is in the toilet right now.  Very few things are secure.  Times are tough and fixing to get tougher.  If there is any way you can slow down, get your bearings, get into a halfway secure position --- your mental health will be better.


You need your mental health in order to be there for your kids.


Have you considered moving the "molehill" instead of the "mountain"?


If the BF has already been approached about the split, what is his position on HIM MOVING out and not you and the kids?  That would be lots less destructive for them.


Also, I wouldn't count on any PT transcription job anywhere right now.  Trust me on this.  This job type is so fluid right now - it's a circus.


I wouldn't move from square one until I got the FT at the hospital.  DON'T MOVE UNTIL YOU FIGURE OUT IF YOU CAN GET THAT JOB.  Then get into it, see what you have to work with.


Secondly, I would not leave myself dependent on the BF for anything but money, and then the courts can get it for you if he decides he doesn't like this, gets a new honey, or gets a "wild hair" and decides to leave the country.


Don't depend on him for babysitting, don't "be nice" and try to share the babysitting.  DON'T DO IT.  Get yourself positioned so you are calling all your shots. 


I know MT looks good on paper when they are selling you an idea of working from home and STAYING WITH YOUR KIDS, but it doesn't work.  The mom ends up the zombie and life becomes like the twilight zone.  I know.  I tried it.  You need to get at the hospital, get daycare, get your childsupport coming in, .........and then think about moving or even buying.  In fact, if you wait, the housing prices are expected to fall even more.  There was an article in our paper about it again yesterday.  Hold off.  If you rent, if the plumbing goes, if the A/C or heater goes......the landlord is responsible.


I don't know if this will give you some things to consider but I hope so.  I raised my kids by myself (of course it was different times but the men were the same, ugh!) and at some times I didn't seem them for having to work so many hours.  I wish now I had just gotten me a State worker job, 8-5, insurance, retirement, gotten a little house even if I had gotten on a program where it was federally assisted, and gone that route.  We could have been together as a family, I wouldn't be doing this horrible life I have now with trying to still work at 60 years old with no place to live.


Think about the future - it's right around the corner.  The kids will be gone and trust me, they won't look back even if they love you lots.  They will be BUSY and you will be an afterthought.  All things in moderation.


First thing - DON'T MOVE, let him move. 


Second thing - WAIT FOR THE FT JOB.


Third thing - Be getting that child support coming in.


I wish you the best. 


p.s. Even if you decide you just have to move and rent even a 2-BEDROOM...it can certainly be done.  My ggg grandparents raised 13 kids in a 2 bedroom old farm house.  Kids slept all over the place!    You and the older kid could share if it's a girl/or if a boy, let him share a bedroom with one of the little ones, and you put the other little one in your room and make a game of it - they will all pitch in and later you all will have "war stories" to talk about when everbody is grown up. 


Look on the company board, they are discussed
almost daily. 
language was being discussed - not just plead


look down 2 lines and you will see this subject discussed. nm

This is also discussed on the company board

I know this has been discussed before but how long does it take to relisten to reports that you have
typed. I know some people do that and some dont. So far I have done okay on QA but if I dont I was just wondering how much extra time per day you figure you need to relisten to reports. I usually do about 30 to 35 medium length reports acute care or 1800 to 2000 lines. What errors do you find mostly when you relisten or is it not worth the extra time it takes. Just curious.
And we've discussed this before on this board. Life is not that
simple for me. If I leave the state, I leave my elderly parents that I care for and I leave my minor children because they legally cannot cross state lines without their father's permission. He's not going to OK that. Besides, I'm happy doing MT. Who ever said I was not happy doing MT? It works great with all the family I have to care for. I just wish I hadn't wasted time and money going to college, especially when the job market in my state got oversaturated with other college grads.
Unlimited long distance...I know this has been discussed before...but..sm
just received letter from AT&T informing me that I cannot use their unlimited plan for what I am using it for, and if I continue to do so, they will charge me a per minute rate and/or remove the service.  I need to know where to go for an unlimited long distance package for transcription.  Please post and let me know what you all use.  Without unlimited, what the heck are we supposed to do? What does everyone else do?  Any help and info would be appreciated.  Thank you
Do a search for 'happy with your job' or something like that. This was discussed a few pages b

Anything related to AAMT is not discussed on this site.

Think this has been discussed before, but the sound quality will probably suffer if you do it. nm

Did you search? We discussed the Saitek Eclipse a few
b
This is strange. I just discussed a flexible on-call person
for radiology with the owner of Keystrokes, where I have worked for 4 years. We were discussing the feasibility of having someone trained on a few accounts, ready to do "x" number of reports a day without a fixed schedule, floating on a few different accounts.

If anyone is interested, please email the office. You can do so through the ads on the job seekers board.
This also involves AHDI, so I think it should be discussed here on the Main Board, not just MQ's

Not biting ... it's been discussed in heated detail on about pg 3 of this board. haha

Been discussed in the past that Word's line counter is lower than normal. Anyone else? nm

Tell your boss
Tell him exactly what you told us - that you were researching for the name and that is what you came up with.  You did nothing wrong and I'll bet the doctor will be very appreciative.  Good catch on your part!
Per my boss.....
It would be 250,000
Boss?
What happens after the holidays? She sobers up and re-hires all of you?

And, I thought nothing for Xmas was bad! :)
I used to have a boss like that (sm)
She was actually running the company, a new franchise in a big city, and between her other duties, she typed.  She would be there at 4 a.m., sometimes 3, and leave at about 9 p.m. every night.  That is a sickness.  The best part is she didn't need the money - seriously - she didn't even need to work.  They were very well off, and her husband had a great job.   She finally had a heart attack, but that was after years of those hours; believe it or not, she didn't even go into the hospital for her heart attack - the doctor said it was "mild" so she came to work half days for about a week, cause the place couldn't run without her.  Now THAT is sick.
I would think so. You would tell your boss ...

if you worked in an office.  I have always let several people know when I am going to be away,  just to make sure I'm covered.


Have a great vacation!


Boss
I am sorry to hear this, but I have worked in-house and encountered the same type of boss. I left and did not look back and that same boss is there and things have gotten worse under her administration. My ex-coworker has been transcribing for nearly 20 years and is one of her best employees, but yet she treats her like a dog -- go figure.
Boss
Sounds like she is trying to get you to quit - I went through this with one boss - an MTSO - who was really losing all of her accounts and did not want anyone to be able to collect unemployment. She tried everything, changing people's accounts, denying them bonuses, taking away work and queuing it to other people, you name it - she did it. Thicken up your skin if you like your job, but don't expect her to change. I'm sorry that you have to go through this, as it makes for a stressful work environment -of course at some point that might be able to be changed to a "hostile work environment" at which time you need to go to EEOC. Come to think of it, I would give them a call anyway and report her.
Boss
I bought the Boss too and I love it! I had considered Dyson, but so expensive, and glad i settled on this one - i'm impressed!
boss
I had one that i worked for a little bit longer than you and when I gave my notice she told me she would take my resignation now. Boy doesn't that make you feel like just another #.
I think it might be a boss
Upon further research I think it might be a carpal boss or bone spur because it is very hard and painful, unlike a cyst.  I'm going to see my rheumatologist in a couple of weeks and ask him.  I have a bad feeling that it might need to come out because my hand is getting stiff.  But as long as i can type I'll hang in there.   
I think you must have my old boss! Just like you, all of us

Notify your boss
Depending on the company you work for, you might get results.  It's very frustrating when you see something that needs changed but are powerless.  When working for Edix, I had a patient that had the exact same condition my son has and there was a new treatment that had saved his life, yet her doctor did not know about it and she was at the point of being near death and only in her 20s.  I emailed my supervisor and asked them to please notify the doctor of the information I sent and they said nope, no way, against the law.  That was nearly 3 years ago and still bothers me wondering how the patient turned out.
Do any of you consider QA/editing to be your boss?
I understand that they critique our work, etc., but I never really considered them to be our "boss".  I already have one supervisor, now it looks like I have a few more.
I am my own boss and my own employee. nm
:}
I'd tell me to discuss it with his boss

You gotta be r-e-a-l careful when you're talk state laws. The boss might consider him "problematic." I mean, how much money are we talking about in terms of travel from the boss to the client? If he's getting, say, $10/hour and it's a 15-minute drive ... For $2.50, I would just let it slide.

I'm an IC and work exclusively for one company, which makes me a statutory employee by IRS law. However, I'm making a high line rate, so I'm more than willing to leave things as they are and pay 100% of my social security tax.

This is one of those "silence is golden" situations.


Boss asking for normals
Is anybody working for a company where your boss is asking you to share your NORMALS.  Be very careful.  My company is asking us to share your normals and come to find out who they want us to share with, overseas.  Also asking questions like, who are the best dictators, etc. Also experiencing block of work just disappearing.  Several hours just gone.  Anybody else.
I wonder if you have the same boss lady as me...
She is terrible.  She constantly acuses me of things I am not doing and then when I call her on it, I never hear any more about it.  Never an apology.  I have tried to speak with her on the phone but she won't and it's always by e-mail which is so frustrating.  I have been slammed so many times I can't even count any more.  I just never know from day to day whether I'll have a job or not because I never know what I will be accused of next.  Oh the things we put up with to make a living in this business
She's the boss, applesauce.
:=
OMG... sounds like you have my old boss! n/m
:)
I'd ask your boss for them or the doctor for -
examples. If you cannot get any that way I'd just use the standard SOAP format for PT.
If you are IC, this person is NOT your boss.

Being my own boss is worth that!
