The individual asked whether or not I had received the letter announcing that a package would be coming my way. State the facts, girls.

I assume you are assigned number much like a license number that can be verified through the AAMT.

Beyond that, I have no idea.

Can someone from the Ohio MQ office give me a contact person and a phone number to call or an email
address. I am interesting in asking a few questions to someone there in hopes of possibly transferring but I need some info first before I go from one problem to the same one elsewhere.
Maybe call the 800 number? I would do that right away as....sm
this might indicate there is something wrong with the keyboard itself in which case you might need to return for store for exchange.
Add your number to the "Do Not Call" List

Not sure what the link is to get to it but its a national list that is now the law- telemarketers can not call you if your on the Do Not Call list. I'm sure you'll be able to find it if you Google it.

We also have our number listed as "private". I think there is a charge but its very small, under $2 a month (because its considered a "feature")

I call the nonemergency police number and let
My name isn't involved. They just state that there are complaints of noise coming from that apartment.

I've never had a showdown with anyone over this.

Call the police...the non-emergency number
most communities have noise ordinance laws. If the cops show up enough times they will stop. Trust me, I've done it. I had a neighbor that used to blast music at the wee hours. I tried the *nice neighbor* tactic of asking him not to do that becuase I have a child and we need to sleep, etc. Well, that didn't work. He worked 2nd shift and believed it was his *right* to blast his music whenever he wanted. After I called the cops a few times on him...he stopped, and I haven't heard so much as a peep out of him since!
yep..get their CMT number and call AAMT to verify.

I've tried to go back to the office a number of times and

I never can make the transition.  One consideration is your wardrobe.  You have to start dressing in office attire which is something I don't miss and found irritating when I went back into the office.  I also found that after working at home for as long as I have done it, it's kind of stressful to get out there and try to be social and friendly.  Office politics is another negative.  Offices are very much like high school, very cliquey and filled with gossip.  There is more to working in an office than just doing your job.  At home, it's just me and my PC.  I do the work and I get paid.  In the office, there's you, your PC, the person who shares the desk with you, the person who sits across from you, the person who sits next to you, your supervisor right across the hall, the doctors knowing you by name and seeking you out to complain about their dictation, the constant ringing of phones, chattering of voices.  The people you share office space with, one will always be hot, one will always be cold, one thinks it's too bright and there's a glare on her screen, and one thinks it's too dark.  You can't wear perfume because the girl next to you is allergic...

I could go on... 

ATA - here's a toll free number-- give them a call...

Here it is. when you call, you'll get an id number..that makes re-ordering faster. sm

Also, the custom sheet has to be specific..when we sent easter eggs..12 large eggs with jelly beans, 24 medium plastic eggs with jelly beans..etc. there are rules about what can be sent..for specific countrys..I'll look for that now.
Is QA going to call the office and ask?...because otherwise=
they can't fix it either. If he said lady at the beginning and you have no other hints (i.e. prostate check?) then go with lady. Only send to  QA if they are going to call and get the scoop.
I would call and tell the office manager
the problem and state that if they cannot provide a clear schedule of patient names, then there is not much you can do other than leave a blank for the patient name when not certain. The problem is on their end, not yours. Is it possible that can scan them and send them in an e-mail rather than faxing??
but we don't get paid to call the office
and go over words.  It is not something I would suggest.  It is so not worth the trouble.
Yes, I do. The office staff are always very kind to me when I call, and I just
I know you might be apprehensive to call the office and ask for samples, but (sm)
perhaps you could just call the OM and say you'd like to have a couple of past reports so you can make sure to keep the formatting consistent. I don't think they'd mind either way, but if you approach it as though you're actually doing them a favor (by attempting to "keep the formatting consistent"), then it might be easier for you to do.
Call Dr office and leave message about this.
If I call the doctor's office and ask for results of an
MRI done on me, do they have to give me the results or do I have to just wait on the doctor to call me?
Call your state insurance comm. office
In some states, they cannot make you take out these insurance policies unless you want them or unless you don't have insurance on something that might be collateral for your loan (i.e. an automobile).  Are you saying the insurance alone was $2000+ or the entire balance?  That question is really NOMB, but I ask because if it is simply the insurance premium cost, I would think you could find such at a much less expensive rate going with a private insurer.  I'm an IC and I have disability as well as $250,000 of life insurance on me and the DH and $50,000 on the three kids and I don't pay $2000 per year for all of that.  If they coerced you into taking out these policies, you should be able to cancel them.  In my state, I have three business days to cancel a contact or any part thereof.  Check with your state insurance commissioner's office.  Good luck.
She needs to call her State Attorney General's office and the police.
She has been scammed. She'll be lucky if they don't continue drawing off her account or do identity theft since she gave out her private information.
Good. Why dont you send some our way. What office do you work for so I can call and get your work.
Gold touch makes a keyboard without number pad. Also the evoluent keyboard has the number pad on th
It is a very small keyboard and has laptop keys which are very quiet and light to the touch.  Almost no noise.
I've always verified every line I've typed (I have my ways) -sm
If you're supposed to be paid a certain $/line, that's what you should be getting no matter how they do billing unless of course it's specified in YOUR contract with THEM.

BTW, I've never caught a company cheating me ever.
Have most people had good luck with their MQ office closing and moving to the regional office. Have
things gotten better or worse for you.
Yes, I lost mine. I upgraded the Office 2000 package to Office 2003. sm
I have over 2000 autocorrect entries and lost them all as well as my supplemental dictionary for my Stedman's spellcheck. Lots of grief!

Maybe you will be lucky and not lose anything. Good luck to you.
Might be able to rent one from an office supply or office machine repair shop
I gave a tin of toffee for each office and a Lia Sophia necklace to each office manager. ~nm~

Office politics. That is why I enjoy working at home. In the office,
people are in other people business. Just mind your own business.
got the "phone call" -- get this, MQ has hired a bunch of telemarketers to call all of us to

we received our "incentive packet."  They don't even have the wherewithall to contact us personally.   These are temp-agency hired telemarketers sitting around a boiler room making sure we're reading our mail.... told him it don't pertain to me because I've been demoted from FT to SE.... He said, "yes, the letter is vague, but it does pertain to FT as well as SE...." yeah right, we'll see.

I didn't find an 800 number, but I did find this number...
1 650-253-0000

Can anyone suggest an office in MQ that is not run like this Amherst office. They are absolutely
pathetic. I wonder how many other MTs are in that office in the same situation.
Just DQS from my office was transferred and the rest are getting on DQS before the office closes.
Pay kids work around office, renovate office.
*70 will disable call waiting unless you are expecting a call and want it on (nm)
Office 2003 so far, but going to Office 2007 as soon as I can. nm
On-call requires on-call compensation by law
This field gets more disgustingly grotesque daily.
30 day TAT in this office ... office politics at its best

I have kept in touch with an MT I worked with at the last in-house job (radiology).  This was inpatient radiology and also an outpatient radiology clinic the hospital operated.

One of the girls, a person who at one time folded towels but who was hired as a clerk, was just discovered to ahve not mailed out reports for 30 days.  These include both in house reports and outpatient reports.  They have been sitting on her desk because she "has not had time to do them." 

What do you make of this?   The lead MT is close to this girl (hence her being moved from housekeeper to clerk) and is trying to minimize the impact that not having the reports mailed to referring physicians' offices, as if it is a minor problem (how they found out about it is a doc's office called the MT's supervisor and asked why 30 days worth of reports were mailed to their office yesterday.

They were keeping it from the director of radiology.  I think this is BIG and that heads should roll for negligence.

What do you think?

at home vs office - i am in office
well, I really was referring to the MONSTER MANAGER that I have, who has her favorites here, and she assigns them the easy doctors who say the same thing over and over, you know.  I have to do something.  I am losing my SELF at this point, with no church and no family.  The stuff on here about running out of work, my lack of computer savvy, all  has me just frozen. MOre about in-office.  Do you have little habits like talking out loud to the dr?  Someone will complain about you.  Do you ever say a cussword?  Someone will complain.  Do you ever sigh?  Complaints.  About age - I was offered 2 trans. positoins in San Diego before I came here.  I had gone to a seminar about how to look for work over age 55, had revamped my resume and my "presenting" self, and it made all the difference.  Things are way different than they were evern 10 years ago, you will be judged by someone younger than you, but in this line of work they do appreciate experience and reliability.  And the computer doesn't care if you're pretty.  It's not your age unless you are sickly.  Don't give up!!  if that's what you want. 
Looking for MQ number...sm

I went through training and am supposed to start soon. I got a phone call from someone named Elaine who said something about the CHW Mercy/Memorial account and gave me a 3658 extension. I called the MQ number I have and they said there is no one there by that name or extension.

Does anyone have a phone number for this person or know how I can reach her?


100 number

If you choose to block your call by either *67 or *69 (forget which one it is) and the nunmber your dialing does not accept blocked numbers and asks you to put your number in, you can put ANY number you choose in and the call will go through.

Did'nt know that one until one of my kids (figures) told me about it.  So it could be the new wave tool of solicitors/bill collectors or just other teens pulling pranks.

Number 1 through 9
I was always told to spell out anything below 10 (even at Medquist).  Prior to taking my second test, a recruiter actually told me that this is a recent change and to make sure to take note of it during the test???  It is so hard to keep things straight sometimes with all the changes and conflicts.  Aiyeee!!!
They want your ss number
in case you decide to skip on your bill; then they can send you to a collection agency.  Are they just supposed to believe because you appear with a medical card that you are covered?  NOT!
age is only a number
I am 43 and am trying to get into a CNA program through a local nursing home.  I took care of my mother-in-law for 8 years before passing away in Januarey of this year.  After doing this I have realized that I want to this instead of typing the reports.  Go for it.  I am.  Good luck!!!
Call me, call me anytime.
I'm waiting to hear back on a job.  Call me!
Call KS and call your bank. Why ask here?
If they don't call you within 15 minutes, you should call them. There
is no excuse for leaving you sitting by a phone all day. At the very least, an e-mail explaining why the delay. If this is the way they train, how do they pay. Do you really want to work for a company who thinks so little of your time?

Sleep Number Bed
We've had the Select Comfort Sleep Number Bed for several years now and it definitely is the most comfortable bed. We had a water bed for years and years and love it too.  The one down side to the Sleep Number bed after having a water bed is that when you crawl into it on a cold nite it is COLD. We don't have an electric blanket. The water bed was always like climbing into a nest! But I would HIGHLY recommend a Select Comfort bed. Paul Harvey and Rush Limbash both advertise them on their shows. After having the bed for a couple years our house took a lightning strike and it blew out the air pump. We called them and they send another pump at no charge. That was very nice.
