It's a good way to get lots of hits on your post!

It's a flame.... as in hot post -

no flame here, no problem - just wanted to post information, how a person uses it is up to them...(n

Oh my..I'm afraid my original post started a flame I did not anticipate...sm
I think it just proves there are companies out there that are not worth our time and some that are. I left my email address (in my original post above)and would very much like to hear about companies that are fair, honest, have steady work, treat their employees professionally and yes...do pay a minimum of 10 cents a line. I know they exist and would appreciate input from those of you who know who they are. You can email me privately so as not to start another flaming war! Thanks for your help.
Have you noticed how many hits the ads have?

So, when the poop hits the fan..sm
who is going to get to take the flak for this mistake... besides the patient?
36 hits doesn't necessarily mean anything.
If there were 30,000 hits on Google, I'd think it legitimate.  However, 30 hits could mean that there are 30 misspellings or 30 idiots out there making up words.  Or it could be a real word.  Normo is a combining form; however, reflexic is not in any of my dictionaries.  (Merriam, Taber's, Dorland's, Stedman's)  If the account's verbatim, use it.  Otherwise, tag it.
Better Business Bureau BBB.ORG 39 hits of
Ameriplan with UNSATISFACTORY ratings.  Do more investigating before you waste your money on an MLM scam, and please don't tell me to check it out because I already did two years ago.
THE HITS KEEP COMING-NEW PROBLEM AS OF OCT 1ST
You probably received an email from your supervisor about full time meaning you HAVE TO produce for 40 hours a week to be full time.  That means, if you take any time off without pay (because you only have 80 hours of PTO a year) for ANYTHING (sick, funeral, whatever the emergency), you will no longer be a full time employee, which means no benefits at all.

IMO - no. If he hits you once, he will hit you again. It will not matter what religion you believe

Good way to drum up hits. nm

Now that hits the nail on the head!
You said that right.

'MEDICAL TRANCRIPTION SUCKS."

It is the only job I have ever had where I actually do 25% of my work for FREE because my employer SAID IT WAS MY JOB.

And every day these companies are more creative looking for new and improved ways to bleed the MTs for more of our hard earned money.

And that IS the reality of this business.
20,400 hits on Google plus an entry in thefreedictionary.com

Someone answered on this below, that thing pops up when it has had a lot of hits -see the # of views

Just went out and bout The Band greatest hits and listening right now to the Weight.

well wait til your daughter hits someone. You will lose everything in that civil lawsuit.
I mean, how ridiculous is that. Letting a 14.5 year old to get more experience. Sheesh. Let her drive at 16 with you and let her drive alone at 18, if you want her to have more experience. There's a reason why the driving age is 16, not 14.
do a google search-were many hits and should find good info--nm

Daughter is vegetarian. I cook a turkey and she hits the side dishes. (sm)
We do pretty well with this. I just make sure I have some of her favorites so she still feels like she is having a feast.

I saw a picture someone made of a "turkey" they had formed out of raw veggies. I think the basic form was one of those rounded shaped loaves of bread and the veggies were on toothpicks. the head and some tail feathers were made from construction paper. It seemed like an entertaining idea especially if you had small children around.


Keep contact at a minimum. Self doubt hits and it is when we tend to fall back into the web
Good luck to you. Expect highs and lows. Best to get professional counseling so they remind you of who you are and where you want to be when he tries to convince you that you are crazy.


No flame from me.....
I agree.  Kids need to learn to seek out the proper people on  their own, with guidance  of course.  If the parents only allows controlled hand picked social contacts, how do you learn that skill?  People who homeschool for religious  reasons are the worst for this.  They only let their kids associated with like-minded people.  Unfortunately the world isn't like that.  I believe that the way to raise well-rounded children is to give them plenty of attention and supervision  at  home, train them about morals and make your expectations clear.  Then as they grow, they venture forth a little more as they get older, slowly separating from being under the  parental wing.  I think teenagers need a parent in the home almost more than little ones,and that is why I work at home.  A good education can be had  in almost any school.   It's there for the taking.  The real world doesn't cater to you, your  needs, your desires, or  your preferences.  A full-time job isn't finished in 3 hours (like the abbreviated day many homeschoolers boast about).   It's about being there on time, sticking to it even though you  may not feel like it, and  getting along with people  you may not care for, and avoiding those who are not good  for you.   Just my 2 cents.
Please do not take this as a flame, but
talking about 65-character count lines, and I believe hospital transcription. If I am not mistaken, you have said before that you count gross lines and clinic transcription, which is a whole different ball game. I too transcribe clinic dictation and count gross lines, and would much rather do this as it is much easier to produce and make money in this environment.
No flame taken
I have often tipped my hat to these guys, was just trying to put a little humor into things today.   I took one road and they took the other.  Have done the hosptital, teaching hospital and realize the complexity of it.  But I have worked hard to get my accounts and keep them also. 
Flame
What does the really (looks like a yellow flame) mean by the postings?
A flame happens
after a post has been looked at a certain number of times. I has nothing to do with the types of responses you get to your post. It's all about the number.
No flame here...
You should file a complaint with Animal Control in your county, even if you already filed with the police. Animal control can give summons (tickets), and also can get you a court date. I forgot what kind of court it is, but it deals with animals and trashy yards (environmental). If your hands and wrists are sore, you should tell the judge you couldn't type as fast and you work on production.
You should get some sort of compensation. The leash law is in place for a reason (your attack for example), and it doesn't matter if the owner is right there on their own property with their dog. If the owner could not restrain his dog, then the leash law was broken. I know this because I live in the country and my beagle was doing his business in my yard by my garage and Animal Control happened to drive by and stopped (what luck!). The officer said that I must have my dog on a leash, even though there wasn't another house in sight, and the beagle was too old and lazy to run anywhere!

I really feel for you; this should not be allowed to happen! You could also have been bitten. You need to report it to Animal Control so it doesn't happen to someone else! Animal Control is serious about enforcing the leash law. Good Luck!
What is the FLAME?
What does it mean when there is a flame next to your post?
Flame
What does it mean when messages have a yellow flame at the beginning of a message?  At first I thought it was because there were so many added posts after the first post, but I posted a message yesterday that I got no answers to, and this morning there is a flame in front of my post.  Does anyone know what this means?  Thanks.
the littel flame
okay, so I am new at all of this. what does the little "flame", blinking yellow signal mean.
Stone/flame me too
I believe the reason this was created is because all the newbies were whining that they cannot find jobs because you need experience and they couldn't get anyone to give them a break. This will be a false sense of an MTs ability if a company hires based on it. And just my opinion.
Off topic - please do not flame...
I will be moving to a smaller house (simplifying and paying off my mortgage in the process..yay!) and will need an Aerobed for guests. For those of you who own them, are they comfortable enough for an elderly person? I have seen some really high ones and see that you can now purchase a separate frame. Any thoughts? TIA.
hardy har-har... flame on!

The flame comes from the message
being viewed over 200 times. She did not put it there. duh.
No flame wars

I don't know what is wrong with you or some of the other people on this board.  I had the mistaken impression that we were all adults here and didn't engage in flame wars. 


Moderator please note that this is what occurs every time someone doesn't like what someone says and in this case makes no sense.  They are simply trying to start a flame war.


As for you, I made no call.  I left it blank because the only thing my AS says is no patient names.  I asked my team leader a long time ago about family members names and he got the answer from the hospital.  I've never come across this before in the medical field but let me tell you something, in education you do not discuss your student with another teacher who is not part of their education or this breaks confidentiality policy.  Since HIPAA is not just policy but a law, I used the same logic that the knowledge that this other patient is in the psych ward is only the business of HIS physicians and not this woman's and that to include HIS name in HER medical record would be questionable at best.  So I did the responsible thing and left it blank with a question mark which is procedure for all of my accounts.


 


What on earth is a flame war?
Are you referring to the flame next to posts on here? That just means they've been viewed a certain number of times.
It'll flame. I'm staying out of it.

Newbie to board - what is a flame? nm
?
No flame here, either ~ had the same thing happen
I was walking my dog on his leash and went past a house where their dog was just wandering in the yard and he came out after us.  It turned out okay, but that was the last time I went that route. 
Please don't flame me, I'm having an Alzheimer's moment, but what is the (sm)
basic 4.  I know it includes H&P, discharge summaries, and operations and procedures, but what is the 4th.  My brain is just not functioning today...it's my only day off and therefore I don't have to think right???  TIA
Flame you, why? Others love, you donít, simple.

What is (sm) and what is the little flame thing beside some of the posts?
I've been trying all day (in between reports and rants) and I just can't figure it out on my own and it's driving me nuts.
and don't flame me.. .I know Kwanza is a cultural event, not

Webipedia dictionary definition of flame is SM
(n.) A searing e-mail or newsgroup message in which the writer attacks another participant in overly harsh, and often personal, terms. Flames are an unfortunate, but inevitable, element of unmoderated conferences.
(v.) To post a flame.



A flame only means it's been viewed over 200 times
/
Poster do not insert the flame icon. (SM)
It happens when the thread has been read over 200 times.


Your point is mud. The flame is not inserted by the poster. (SM)
The flame does not represent hostility. It means it is a popular topic.

Perhaps you should be posting somewhere else if you want to simply disrupt the board.
Apple Pie A La Mode!!! Go ahead, flame me LOL

yellow marker=flame=hot thread
It's supposed to be a flame meaning it is a hot topic receiving a lot of views. You were so close to the answer. =)
