It is hard when you have to take care of the kids (mine are 8 and 14 months), work and somehow manage to have your house not look like a disaster area...sounds fun to me---LOL...in all seriousness though I love my job and that I am here for my kids and I don't have to justify that to anyone...

honestly, QA just doesn't bother me anymore
they can put whatever they want on my reports. i really don't think my employer gives a crap, so i don't either. If they want to make up words, which they have done in the past, so be it. If they want to put in something that I know is wrong, oh well, as long as i don't get in trouble for it, it's not my responsibility to QA the QA.
Just ignore it SS, people are going sm
to argue no matter what. I think sometimes folks just get use to living on more and "spend" every dime they make never thinking things might get slow. When it does, then they are hurting. I know, I have been there and to adjust! It can be done. You know the old saying, the more you make, the more you spend?

You are wise not to retire! I see too many people who retire and their brains rot! I think if you can do this as long as you want, at least you know your mind is ok! I don't have to work, but I intend to keep working as long as I can. I have quite a few more years as I am 53 now.

dont' even bother. People with sm
that attitude you don't want to work for. I would rather be on QA for months and learn every last thing about that account and learn it right than have somebody down my throat about still being on QA.

Don't let them fool you, these people that run these ads don't have that great of MT skills either or they would never put an ad like that. Stay away from them.
In bad times, people ignore healthcare -
some things you have to have even in bad times, but all the elective stuff which keeps a lot of us going is not being done in this time of crisis. I was typing 50-100 GI procedures a day, now I am typing about 20!

The economic crisis is having a big effect on healthcare - don't kid yourself...

The way people appear in public anymore--
Reminds me of a T shirt I saw that read-- Too many freaks, not enough circuses. I think slippers are the least of your worry. I think people should at least be covered up and not letting everything hang out for public display. If they want to look like that at home, but not in public.
I have tinnitus, so I can either listen to people in the background or the "crickets" in my he
:(
I think lots of people not paying for the years anymore
If that were the case with 30+ years, my per line pay would be more than what I make now. No more pay for experience.
You know, I dont think people care anymore what MQ offers or doesnt offer, I think everyone is just

sick of all the confusion, dishonesty, sneakiness, etc. You never know what is around the corner so after this there will be something else no doubt. I think I and most other MQ MTs just want a company that they can respect and trust. MQ can offer this package and turn right around and change that. Leopards dont change their spots. It seems like they are intent on running this company into the ground and they are doing a good job of it. I dont see how they ever will stand up against the money they owe all of these hospitals. You still have to wonder what prompted them to send checks out to the DQS MTs for mistakes in calculation of lines. Give me a break. Maybe they are trying to settle lawsuits to get out of the MT business and focus on just technology. They sure dont know what they are doing with the MT side for sure. I think they felt they had everyone up against a brick wall but as accounts leave so will MTs or MTs will just move on to another business as the wages get lower and lower so then all the work can go to India. Older MTs will cut back or retire and younger ones will leave for something else when they see what they have to battle with the work left over from ASR or VR for the small amount of money not to mention EMRs coming quickly.


People have no patience anymore. I gave a $10.00 donation and I got an email the next evening.

I think since these people also have a transcription service, no one should expect an instant response.  Besides, it's more about giving than getting anyway. 


"stating that people have a poor grasp of the English language anymore. "
i hate that expression. makes no sense to me.
if you live among trashy people, low income people, people w/o goals or direction,
content to just get by, you by default become a part of a group. "people" have decided to group trailer people as trash. that is because there are enough people in that group to earn the title and even if you aren't trash, you are categorized by others. did i think i was trash in lower class neighborhood surrounded by people who drank and fought all weekend? no but i knew i wasn't staying and did not try to pretend that all the fools in the neighborhood were just nice folks who ended up where they were because high horse snobs deemed their neighborhood low class. people for the most part live exactly where they belong because they don't want to educate themselves, they don't mind "trash" around them and they don't want to be bothered trying just a bit hard to extract themselves from that world. they justify everything to themselves i guess saying everyone who doesn't like their lifestyle is a snob and the comedians (Jeff Foxworthy/Chris Rock, etc) who make fun of them are just ill-informed.

As for me, I fought hard to get out and don't even want to look back. It amazes me people stay for generations.
ignore them

let's try to ignore them
I for one will no longer open a post that looks like a bash. We have things to work out and I come her to connect, I don't want to waste time with them anymore. I feel badly for the new people who were on this morning, hopefully they will find other means if they don't come back on.
JUST IGNORE HER. She is going
to go on and on and on. She has been talking about this since July 4th. Please give us a break. Not even going to read all of the posts below. She keeps saying the same thing; and if everybody would stop responding, she will just go away. WE GOT YOUR POINT. NOW STOP.
Ignore her. She's obviously new.
NM
Just ignore.....
that one's an obvious troll. Up and down the board slammin everyone. Anyone with a brain can read these posts and see that YOU didn't say plenty, and that she's obviously trying to start a fight. Just ignore...maybe if we don't feed it will leave. Kind of like a stray animal...though I usually feed those (of course they're usually much nicer:)
Ignore her, she is just being a troll!
nn
You are right, I need to ignore it. I just really don't understand
why she is allowed to continue to post. It is so obvious who she is. The same style. Same emothicon used constantly. I need to remember "Do not feed the Troll". LOL.
never ignore your gut feelings
Every time I have ever ignored mine, I have regretted it. This is especially true when it comes to being a mom. Maybe it is mother's intuition or whatever. Kinda like when a kid wants to know why they can't do something...."Because I said so" sounds so lame when you don't really have a reason. However, I've learned the hard way if I feel something is wrong to listen to my inner instinct--it has never been wrong.
I will not ignore her; I will back her up
We can only blame MTs to a point.  It's the owner of the company hiring cheap labor and not caring if they can do the job as long as a good Editor will clean up the mess.  That's the problem.  The boss saving a penny here and there.  It's going to backfire on a lot of them.  Pennywise and pound foolish.
Anyone here ignore the BOS rules?
I find local docs and clinics here in NE do not care about the BOS rules and actually consider some of them "mistakes." They like things done the way they always were. It drives me crazy trying to stick to the "new rules" when even the samples they give me are set up the same way they have been doing things for years. I find they still make sense and cannot get my brain to wrap around doing things differently for each account. I am ready to give up.I was told by an ivy league institution health clinic to do it "their way" which has been in place since the dark ages. Am I alone in this predicament?
Ignore poster below.
She gives the same attitude to everyone who posts looking for a good company.

Sad thing is it's usually new people to the board, and then they think everyone's like that.

You can start by taking a look at the job seeker's board. If you see a company that might fit what you're looking for you can search the archives and get some opinions.

You may have to test with a few companies before you get the actual information, so don't be shy about applying to many.

Tell him to ignore the beeps...sm
I used to use one and had one doctor complain of that constantly.  I was getting the dictation with no problem, so I told him to ignore the beeps and anything else he heard on the line.  Worked out just fine. Hope that helps!
If there is one bill you NEVER ignore

mortgage.  Always, always keep in touch with them even if you don't have the payment.  Your not alone in your dilemma.  The mortage companies have been very flexible and willing to work with payment issues in the past year.  Not sure if the options are still available since they've started foreclosure proceedings, but there are payment plans and now the popular "modification" loans.  Pick up the phone and call them - do it ASAP.  Explain your situation, decreased income, ARM adjustment and see if there is an option to keep you in the home at a payment that is comfortable.  I know many of the lenders are waiting for the exact guidelines on March 4th under the new stimulus plan to come out.  Hopefully this will be the saving grace some are hoping for. 


I wish you luck though, I know you're in a touch situation.  I was there too so can truly sympathize.  My loan is currently pending modification, but I first started with a payment plan.  My fingers and toes are crossed. 


Ignore that message!!!

I got the same thing last week.  I was on the internet and a message came up that looked like it was from Windows (but it  from somewhere on the internet) saying how many trojans and bad stuff I had on my computer.  It's a total crock!!!  If you responded to the message and click ok, you I couldn't say for sure what you are in for.  Someone is trying to get access to your computer.  If you are uneasy about something, listen to that inner voice.  You can always do a check later on your own to verify anything.


If you just had it cleaned up by a professional and have a good firewall and antivirus installed on your computer then don't worry about it if you didn't get curious about the message.  If you did then you might need to check that out.


just ignore the naysayers sm
you are the one making the money and doing the work and only you!  We have all heard this kind of stuff.  Just keep laughing all the way to the bank as you work at home. I am sure most of us who have made it in this business whether with our own accounts or a national (national for me and it can work) have heard all the put downs and negativity.  Just ignore it all. You know what you can and cannot do!  I think a lot of the negativity stems  from jealousy whether admitted or not!
Ignore that post as best you can
I think it's the same 'ethnic' (Indian?) troll that keeps spamming up all the threads trying to antagonize and provoke people. It's all over the main board, company board and MQ board.

Perhaps if we all ignore it, it will float away to whatever continent it came from.
Why bother asking???
Just looking for reference so everybody who needed to know could know. Not trying to flame. Simply asked for reference as BOS User provided reference and ALS did not -- guess you weren't as interested as I thought you were?!?
bother, not both
oops, suppose will get slammed here.
Don't even bother -
.....as we speak!
If he is not used to it, of course it will bother him at first, but he will get used to it if
:l
Don't bother with them...
I worked there for a few months and received incorrect and late paychecks.  They are not worth spit.  The MT manager has never been an MT and is clueless when it comes to the work. 
i have them around, they just don't bother me.

that would bother me too
-- how do you know that down the road, someone wouldn't undercut you the same way. It would be hard to trust them and not get nervous about it later, esp if you took on a debt/new payment or something.
Does not bother me in the least-
I get out and go as much as I want, just had lunch out before starting work today, hubby and me, went over to my daughters house last night to give her some assistance with lawmmower, etc. and to tell you the truth, like hubs and me just well, really donít care that much about socializing all the time, rather be working and making the $$$$.
I don't know why I bother...

but here goes.....


I am not for "outsourcing".  I am not for it because it is a way for greedy americans to try and get cheap labor.  If someone wants to compete fairly with me for a job, I am fine with that. 


But I am also not for belittling people and picking apart their posts no matter who they are and where they are from.


I also think that if you are proud to be American, you would rise above losing your job to outsourcing.  You would not spend your time whining and complaining and insulting strangers.  Rise above your circumstances...create your own opportunity...isn't that the American way?


Don't bother!
I joined with the same thought process as you.  Not only did no one care whether or not I had this to add to my resume, but I have not used one thing that has been offered.  There is an email that comes once every couple of weeks that I delete before even looking at it.  I did look at the first couple and it was "who cares" kind of information.  I just don't have time to be perusing through a bunch of information that I will probably never need and if I do, I can look it up through Google, drugs.com, etc.  This is just my opinion, take it for what you will.
Would this bother you? regarding QA
When corrections need to be made a bulk fax goes out to the MTs on that account. Any corrections, or notes, made by the hospital are on these. I just feel like these should not be sent to everyone but only to the individual that needs to correct them. Am I wrong?
Would this bother you?

I was hired with 2 other MTs to do a new acct for a national whose name shall not be mentioned. 


During the first several months, it became noticeable that one MT who was the largest producer was cherry picking and their reports were riddled with errors.  And this is a fantastic account for the most part - very easy to make money without cheating.


So, the other MT and I mentioned it to each other and agreed to what we were both observing.  She took it to the supervisor who concluded that there was envy on our part because he typed the most.  She dismissed our claims as did the QA person/assistant to supervisor after I mentioned to her I was seeing his work (like when 2 rads dictate the same report and you find out by seeing the other report in place) and it had typos in it or the skeleton of a canned report not filled out at the bottom of the page (must have put it in twice). 


A few months later, the account (a hospital) requested this MT be taken off the acct.  He was placed on 100QA and then let go (policy). 


The sup and the QA person, although never mentioning it, must have realized it was not jealousy at all at that moment. Right?  That we loved our jobs and did not want this type of work to go through and all of us be considered fly-by-nights.


Rather, there appeared to be something close to resentment as we began to be both QA'ed to death with the other MT nearly losing her job until she put her foot down and refused to be on 100% QA (25 yr veteran). 


The tension was palpable and it was made worse that every lead MT in our dept appeared to know about it and began to treat us like we were whiners and complainers. 


I was then dx'ed with BC and in a state of panic told my group.  My sup told my the QA person had been dx'ed with BC too and that she was call me and reassure me. We spoke for quite some time on a few different occasions on the phone and and e-mailed back and forth.


She said she was also engaged to a radiologist who worked at the hospital in her hometown.  A team member with an investigative mind decided to check it out and found out he was married and had a child with no divorce recorded in his county. 


I was contacted and told not to take her advice regarding BC treatment and maybe I should be more private about details..


It has been over 3 years now. I am still alive.


But.. I cannot for the life of me answer the phone when my sup calls.  I dread talking to her and actually have not for nearly a year (lol)


I feel as if they pretended she was a cancer patient so I would share details about my prognosis and they would be better prepared for coverage should I end up unable to work.  


Have you ever heard of anything quite so strange in the new world of work place telecommunication?   Should I just shut up and count my money and thank the MT Gods that I have an account with no ESLs? 


Sorry, I have wanted to write this for a year but was afraid the details would reveal who it was should anyone peruse this site.  Hopefully, now, it will go unnoticed.


Appreciate your feedback if you have any at all. 


Sorry to be such a bother.
The reason I asked about feedback is because I went from working under a supervisor at a local hospital, who constantly told us how we were doing (monthly reviews at least), to an MTSO where I only rarely get feedback, and it is always negative. Because of this, I am concerned, as I don't know whether I am actually doing good or whether I am just squeezing by.

When you are coming close to needing to fire someone, do you make it pretty obvious? Only asking because I am personally afraid of being blindsided, since I am not used to working for an MTSO.

Feel free to let me know if I am crossing the line in any of my questions as well. It is just nice to be able to ask someone higher up about how things are done, especially being newer to the business.

Thank you!
Don't Bother

I was a CMT for 12 years, but let it lapse last year when it was up for renewal.  It never made a bit of difference when I looking for a job, either you're a good Transcriptionist or you're not.  There's some CMTs that are book smart, but don't have a bit of common sense and that's just as important.  Being a CMT is a matter of personal choice, but in no means does it guarantee a better job or a higher paying one.


AHDI supports offshoring and always has.  They try very hard to remain "politically correct" and not upset their Indian buddies.  In fact, most of the board of directors are employed by Indian companies.  They do not support the American MT at all.


AHDI would like you to believe the certification may become required.  If it does, it would not be through them.  It would be a state or federal licensing program, not through AHDI.


You have to earn 30 CEC's in a 3 year period to renew your CMT.  You have to pay for continuing education classes or attend AHDI functions which you also pay for. 


 


Please ignore the above post. I messed up.
I work as an editor for SS. I had problem getting my lines in every day and for a while was doing 1890+ in 4-5 hours. However, after they changed my pay to w/o spaces at their whim (as I had been paid for spaces for the first 4 months I worked there), I just decided I did not care and I do just enough to get 945 in my 4 hours. They are constantly wanting extra help in editing, which I used to pitch in and help as well, but now I don't simply because of the pay change.
No kidding. Ignore the troll.

I would ignore the request and if they persist
tell them absolutely not!

I would not give any samples of my hard work to anyone.
Just wanted to see how my avatar looks...ignore.


Unless you want to see, too. 


Ignore the typos, I saw them. This isn't work. nm
