MSN used to send me daily e-mails SM

telling me every single website they had been to.  But this would only work if they sign in under their own name and not "borrow" mom or dad's name!

amen. don't send me condescending atta girl e-mails. i know i do a good job.
i don't need a cheer-leader supervisor to tell me.
Production e-mails
Sounds like we work for the same company!  I wonder if the whole company is doing that or just particular team managers? I really don't mind it that much, it kind of keeps me on my toes - but I can understand your frustration.
Question about e-mails...sm
I am trying to send an e-mail to my employer but it keeps coming back to me as a failure notice.  It states:  530 Authentication required.  Does anybody know what this means?
Did you save any of the e-mails

If so, then just include that with a nice letter to your past employers about the fact that your working arrangement did not work out. 

If that doesn't work, you may want to see if there is a way to sue her for defamation of character.  She has to have good grounds to be calling your previous employers.  Was this the lady at Seascript?  She seemed to have some problems, but I think she was getting help.

Save the e-mails you get and, when you
get one from QA person B that contradicts what QA person A said in the old one, reply to B with a cc to A saying in a very nice and professional way that you had understood it to be such-and-such based on what A had told you before. This will start a dialogue among the QA folks and, hopefully, the correct answer will be found and published.
No check from 07/16, 08/01, and 08/16..no response to e-mails
Thankfully I haven't had this problem before..but now I don't know what to do.  This is a lady who I've done work with for the past 3 years...very much in the first couple of years, and it has slacked off to only occasionally now.  I never had a problem with her paying in the past and thought we had a good working relationship over the past few years.  Now, I haven't been paid for these 3 invoices, and have gotten a couple of e-mail, late in August and early in September, that the check was on the way.  Now for the past week plus I haven't gotten any response to my e-mails..and still no check.  It's only about $350 or so, but it's the income I've always used to pay my credit card bill...and now without it, I've gotten late charges. I just wonder what my next move should be..or if there is anything I can do short of just e-mailing her again? I'm just really surprised that it's come to this...and I'm hoping she's just on vacation or something
I know this is MDI-MD. Couldn't take the e-mails - she is NUTS! nm
Anyone type their e-mails in all caps?

A co-worker sends the entire e-mail response in all caps regardless of the question.  I was always told it meant shouting.  If there is some other meaning please inform.





I've been getting e-mails explaining it.
Maybe you aren't on company e-mail or you haven't checked it?
Sometimes e-mails show no emotion
You are lucky to have a mentoree.  Take it with stride, and once you've gained experience, move on.  Words on paper can be misinterpreted very easily.
The e-mails show that they come from MT Stars

Any time someone e-mails you from a MT Stars post this message is attached to the e-mail showing that it comes from MT Stars.  Just because you didn't get one doesn't mean a thing.  They have to open a post and click on the blue to e-mail - they just haven't done it to you yet.

RE: How do I set outlook express so my e-mails show up chronologically?
Tell them your ISP has installed a new SPAM filter and a it's intercepting a lot of your e-mails
Ask Greg or Frank or whoever is the current CEO. They can check e-mails from Hawaii.
Tired of blanket nonproductive e-mails that chew out everyone but are really only meant for a (SM)

for a few individuals.  These are so discouraging for the ones who are doing a good job.  Supervisors are not so important that they can't take the time to change the e-mail address so the letter is sent to only those who are messing up - and, conversely, if you can't take the time to figure out who is messing up, then you won't take the time to find out who is doing a good job, so you will never give a raise. 

Yes - my letter is perfect example of sending an e-mail to every supervisor and MTSO.  See how ineffective it is?  Makes you feel very defensive if you are not guilty of doing this.  Imagine how it makes me feel when I get these notes after working 10-12 hours to try to help you get caught up, and then you send out a note that basically says how lazy we all are.  Thanks a lot.  There are a lot better companies out there than you, and even a few who might appreciate high quality and high quantity work.   


This is what I use daily


This site lets you type in three or more letters of the drug, and it pulls up everything with those letters.  It's great for when you only hear part of the drug.


Daily work is exactly what the word DAILY means --> work that comes in on a daily basis.  No days pass by without an empty queue.

I must be with the wrong companies then.

By chance is this MT Daily?
Not everyone comes to this board daily!
Are we not allowed to ask questions if they've been asked before? I understand this is the main board but people complain on the company board too if you ask about a company already posted about. Maybe those people can just skip over the posts and keep going, onto another message board preferably! Sheesh.
How many authors do you have daily?

I'm with a small MTSO and for quite a while have been on an account with about 10 doctors, mostly ESL.  I was very comfortable with them.  I have been trained on three accounts, one with maybe 6 and then another very large account, but they kept me primarily on this account.

Recently I was switched to one of the other accounts - no ESL, but this last pay period I had 38 different authors!!  Am having a hard time getting comfortable, and there's other problems , but for this post I just was hoping to find out, on average how many authors are others doing?

Maybe I was really lucky before with just 10 docs - ?

Usually 2 hours daily.
Today I clocked 2 hours 33 minutes and I can honesly say I'm beat!  Almost solid H&Ps and D/C summaries too...so finger-saving normals.  Blech!
I would still flag it - he said twice daily not

Daily digest
What's the daily digest?  I had not heard of that.  How do we sign up for it?
I add things daily. sm
I have been an MT and had an Expander for nine years, and i still add things on a daily basis. Not only cos I still run into new stuff daily, but also because your mind thinks of more and more complex things to put in there as you go.

Back when I started, all I thought about was long words and two-word phrases, maybe some longer phrases. I was happy with that. But then as i went typing happily along, I discovered I could do much more -- put entire sentences in, put formatting in, create entire pick lists, call up macros, call up websites, call up templates, the list goes on and on.

How do I remember them? Well, first I realize it's missing by actually typing in the short I think would make sense if it was in there. If it's not there, I put it in. Then maybe the next time I run into that phrase, I think, "hmm, have I entered this before?" and i try out the short that would make the most sense to me (at that time of course, which could be completely different than the first time!) And if it's there, yeah! I just saved myself some keystrokes!

I also just switched to IT and about once a month I run an enrichment on my doctors to get the most out of what they say.
what is daily work?
If it's never running out, being able to work the hours you want to work and still making a decent paycheck, then yes I have daily work.
The Daily Typo: - (sm)

What was dictated:   "He had normal fundi bilaterally."

What I typed:  "He had normal FUNGI bilaterally."

Mental image that conjured up:   Dude with large mushrooms sprouting out of his ears!     

Do you currently post on MT Daily or read it?

I was thinking about paying the $48 but then I thought there are only limited amount of people who will pay so probably not as good as MTStars.  It was fun though before they started charging and if they only charged half as much they would draw more people.  $48 is way high when other boards are free.

Just some daily walking would probably shake it for you, too. nm
? lidopine bis-a-late 10 mg daily
Anyone heard of this.  I posted on word board but got no help.  Need STAT.
I change mine daily
I use td for today's date and yd for yesterday's date and I just change them every day.
pt does get her mammagram daily. LOL ouch sm


G2, P2.  Her pregnancies were uncomplicated.  She has not seen a gynecologist in over two years, but she does get her mammogram daily.    Uhhh.... I don't think so Mr. MD!!!   You couldn't get me to do that daily if ya paid me!

well, 4 times daily as needed...yep. i think so!
it doesn't have to be taken 4 times a day just as needed.

If you don't speak on a daily basis . . .
We speak several times daily.
Even right now while he's overseas on a business trip, we make time for a couple daily phone calls.
I'm with you ... I get enough reality just with my daily living. sm

Kinda nice to get lost and just veg with my Law & Order and CSI addictions :)

Obviously, I'm in the minority since they seem to come up with more and more reality shows .... I admit to watching the Biggest Loser a couple of times, but I can't imagine being "hooked" and watching it all of the time, sitting on the edge of my seat. 

I work with SR on a daily basis, and I can tell you...sm
...it will NOT be replacing human intelligence, now or 10 years from now or 50 years from now. The files we work on come from a VERY expensive speech recognition system and the quality is very poor. SR cannot handle punctuation well at all, doesn't know when to stop and start sentences, has problems with capitalization, and ironically enough, when the doctor actually spells something out, that totally confuses SR!

But even if technology advances to the place where speech recognition can accurately reproduce every word and sound that comes out of a doctor's mouth, so what? That STILL will not replace human MTs, because doctors do not always say what they mean, or even when they DO say what they mean, what they mean is not right! We're the only ones who can clean up that mess.

Fix Or Repair Daily = FORD....nm
It gave him daily headaches. nm
What reference do you use the most on a daily basis? SM

I lost all my reference books in a fire and I can't afford to replace them all at once.  I am buying a couple of books each pay check and I've been trying to decide what I need the most.  So far I have gotten a Dorland's Medical Dictionary, Surgical Word Book, and Radiology Word Book because I do radiology a couple of times a week. 

So to all you acute care MTs out there, what books do you find yourself using on a daily basis?

I use my old faithful PRD with it daily, no problems. sm
Chartscript looks scary at first, but it's the easiest thing to use once familiar with it.
5-10 of each a day with 2 others on acct doing 350-400 exams daily
Works out good if you are paid by exam which I hope you are.
yes, daily, but get paid lines for it. nm
I take ibuprofen usually on a daily basis
although really should not. I have this in the bilateral wrists so it cannot be just the mouse use alone. A certain movement with the wrists elicits such excruciating pain, you probably know though. Am glad not doing anything real serious, like brain surgery or the like, when this pain hits.
Dont you wish all those witches from MT-Daily would get

How to receive daily digest?-please help

Many, many months ago I somehow figured out on this site how to receive a daily digest through email each day and I enjoy that.  Now I would like to tell a couple MTer's how to receive this Daily Digest as well, but am not able to find the directions on this site again.  If anyone could tell me how to sign up for the Daily Digest, would greatly appreciate it.  Thanks. 

I also made a daily spreadsheet
that I plug my daily line count into, and it gives me a daily and to-date pay period earnings total. I just keep updating all day with my counts until I reach my goal for the day. I also see my pay period total and figure out how close I am to paying off those bills.

When I having an especially good day, it really motivates me because I see the numbers going up quickly and I just want to work more.
Daily emergency work as IC...

Is it normal for an IC to be called often for emergency reports that need to be completed within a short amount of time - one to two hours.  Is this normal practice?  I get these calls fequently and it makes it difficult to complete the work I was doing, and/or I may be out on my own time when these phone calls come in.  I tend to work best in the evenings so I do most of my chores, etc., during the day.

Jobs seem to be posted daily
in abundance, but all lackluster line rate now-a-days. Just noticing.
Each of our counts is available in program daily.
Rather than politics, I think that it comes down to just not being liked by a supervisor even when performing optimally. This is her first job as a sup.
