My favorite moment on a soap was years ago when Hope was marrying someone else and Bo came up riding

on his motorcycle to break up the wedding and take her away.  I always thought that was the most romantic thing in the world!  My favorite was the Christmas episodes when Mrs. Horton would put up the Christmas tree bulbs of all of the family members and it was basically like reliving the old episodes.

My favorite moment of the night was
when Simon made that remark about Ryan with the Desperate Housewife look. Did everyone see those pictures of Ryan and Terry Hatcher? It may be a shock if Katherine or Mandisa go. I hope it's not Chris.
My favorite moment last night of American Idol...
I loved the moment when that Clay Aiken wannabe was given that razzie award and was singing Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me (much to the regret of my ears, LOL) and out walks Clay Aiken, the crowd goes wild and I'm sure the wannabe thought they were cheering for him.  LOL  I think he was truly shocked that Clay was there.  Nobody could have acted his reaction out!  I loved it. 
My favorite gifts over the years were the homemade ones - congrats for having the energy

Maybe she is marrying him so she...sm
can get pregnant, then get child support from your son, and then raise the kid with her girlfriend. My children are only 7 y/o (twins) so I don't know what I would do.
My son is marrying a lesbian, help!!
I posted for help 2 months earlier, but I am still going crazy over this situation. My son happily announced that his girlfriend is a lesbian, but he is still wants to marry her.  His girlfriend does not respect me. She has called me nasty names and boldly flashes her other girl lovers in my face. My son feels he can make it work even though she loves another woman. HELP
Oh well.."lesbians" marrying men are usually considered bisexual. Its his life..not yours.

They better have SE because no way is my insurance riding on the BS they pull with no work all the
time. They can hang you out to dry with that 12,000 line deal unless you work 24/7 lately. No way does my health insurance ride of that deal.
I'm a broken record but I'm riding the train too
I'll just work as a nurse AND run my MTSO until the train falls off the track.
What? Does Kenny need Viagra? Too much riding on a bumpy tractor?? nm
first rule in riding school was: Learn how to fall...
no really. learn to tuck and curl up, and roll if you get bucked or thrown off. never ride alone.

horses sense fear; if you show it, or your voice even has one iota of fear in in, forget it, your horse will take control over YOU and have you doing what he/she wants.

use simple commands with a confident strong voice. show the horse respect and the horse will also respect you.

try bareback; it really gives you a chance to 'bond.' do you own the horse or are you just riding a different horse each time at a stable?

you need a relationship with the animal as well. groom them, show them affection, but NEVER let them have the upper hand.

when I first got my horse she used to throw me all the time. she would even throw her head so far back it would almost hit me. no one would ride her but me, but after a lot of time and patience (think of them as a 2-year-old child) they will come around. they need to trust you...

by all means, you must get right back on, if they do throw you or 'spook.' my sister had an ex-race horse, thoroughbred, who spooked at his own shadow, literally. I never did warm up to him, but he was like a one-person horse...

how lucky you are, I miss riding so much!
I'd get the riding mower fixed pronto, granted - sm
push mowing 3 acres is probably great exercise, but it must be a bit time consuming. I used to cut 1.3 acres and it would take about 60-90 minutes on a riding mower, and that is with a house and pool in the way; can't imagine how long it takes to push mow 3 acres.
riding the back country horseback with my dog and taking photos.
OR, if MTing 2-3 hr a day and having time to do all the things I never can because i'm working.
What's your favorite food. Favorite in that you could only have one last meal what would it be?

Indulge me while I stare at computer screen waiting for Q work that isn't there.

I love spaghetti but only served with a great salad with olive oil and some garlic bread. Can't have pasta alone.  And needless to say a glass of red wine.  No dessert, just extra spaghetti.


my fav moment
was when Taylor won and he was so overwhelmed!  During the whole show last night I felt like he thought Kat was going to win but he was having a good time anyway.  He's been my favorite the entire season.  I just loved watching his reaction when he heard the news!  Kellie Pickler was always annoying to me, but I have to say the little skits of her were funny last night.  Like her hair short that way too--it's very cute.  Was that her dad sitting beside her?  I heard he had been released.  Didn't see her grandpa I don't think.  He was usually always there to see her. 
Fav AI moment
I thought Clay's appearance was great - the other guy was so surprised. I also wondered about plastic surgery - but it may just have been the longer hair that made him look different. He looked more "built", too. I am so glad that Taylor won.
One at the moment, but looking for second as getting slow--nm
Oh no, senior moment sm
Am I describing the right state? Could I mean Utah? So confused. Anyway, I've been to both states and they are both beautiful.
Some need to step out of their box for a moment - eh! LOL. nm
Surreal moment this a.m./CNN
Today on CNN they had on the phone a doctor by the name of Tony Asher, a local (Charlotte) neurosurgeon.

I have been to him and I work at a hospital where he practices, so ironically this a.m. I recognized his voice before I looked on the TV and saw his name during interview with Sonjay on CNN.  For me, it was a weird experience, but only one that another medical Transcriptionist could fully appreciate.

Also I have seen him as a patient. I was misdiagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia and he verified it wasn't that diagnosis. In long run, it was a bad tooth - I actually went to Duke for a consultation and they couldn't figure out the problem, BUT the first thing the doc there asked, "Are you sure it isn't a tooth?". AND it was a tooth, but that didn't happen until a x-ray by dentist later on (which contradicted findings of x-ray when this first happened).

I will always remember the resident that was in with the doc (whose name I long forgot) - the resident looked just like Raymond's brother on "Everyone Loves Raymond." And talked like him.

These are my issues with VR (at the moment, that is)
I say this because the platform I work on has changed from 1 of really, really good to now: No periods even though starting another sentence and the next letter of next sentence capitalized so it knows; numbers can be completely haywire from 4,4, 3, 1, 4 and 5 to perfect for some dictators, mostly not though, doctor's names no longer in although previously had them in; no matter what the patient's name is, completely opposite from what is being said; sometimes throws in categories capitalized not even said and in wrong place. Now the good thing about VR, I am my own spell check now. Everywhere I go I am seeing misspelled words and I find literally hundreds all over the place. Just found 1 this morning in the doctor's office, surgeies. I guess the person making the sign did not have or use spell check. I do not think literally possible to do that many lines per hour myself.
At this moment I have 5011
and that's just in my ShortHand dictionary. All of my spelling correction type things go in the autocorrect file, and since I work in DQS, I'm not sure if there's a way to count those....

I'm adding more expansions every day, as I think up new and different things that need expanding. And not so coincidentally, my average daily line count is creeping up as well... although I am sure that is partly due to just getting more and more familiar with the dictators as I go along.
Say "I'm having a MedQuist Moment" instead of "Maalox."

My only "where were you" moment was JFK assassination.
I was a sophomore in high school and was in English class. I remember being devastated and the guy sitting next to me made a rude comment and laughed. I wanted to knock the heck out of him.
HA!!!! Lucid, don't you mean "Lucy" moment. LOL. nm
LOL. It took a moment to realize you weren't
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
Have just landed a great job.  Good $$.  No nights, weekends, or holidays.  How long do you think that is going to last?  Look at the trend 6 months ago, now, and 6 months from now - or a year from now.  The face of the MT business is changing.  No one is secure and one thing is for sure - we can not all stay.  I have a good client in a specialty I love now.  I guarantee you, this client is going to obtain a cheaper source than me in the next 12-18 months.  I am at the age where I need steady, secure, decent paying work.  When this one goes, I am hanging up my headphones too.  Hope to get my social security figure up first though.
I am drawing unemployment at this moment
due to being laid off my primary job. I can earn up to one-third the amount of my weekly benefit without being penalized. I have to be available and actively looking for work every day of the week, and I must be willing to accept work on any shift. I was specifically told that enrolling in school would forfeit my eligibility for continued UI benefits unless I was accepted into a state-endorsed training program because I have to be available for work 24/7. Tomorrow I have to attend a 2-1/2-hour job-search-assistance class and will ask about this again, but I know things worked the same way in my previous state of residence.
there are a bunch of these on ebay at the moment. NM

It's the topic of the moment. You must be in a foreign country maybe.
There was a catastrophic hurricane with a devastating flood afterwards! A disaster of biblical proportions! Many people lost their homes, the worldly positions, billions of dollars in loss. Lives were lost, the poor, the elderly and the infirmed. We watched it on the news (it was on here in the U.S. around the clock). Try www.cnn.com for all the details.
Hey! I just got my second dach (mini). Henry is in my lap at this moment.
Need help with calculating expenses for bid on large account. At the moment I do not know *sm*
how many lines they dictate per day/week.  I am going to call the person who sent me the bid forms and ask.  I do not have my own call-in system and would be using a TASP. Can someone tell me that currently uses a TASP how to go about figuring my costs in so that I do not under bid.  I know that each dictator and the type of report is going to vary but on an average what would you say?  Bottom line is I need to know how many cents per line I need to charge to cover the call-in system and my other expenses.  Another thing they listed in the bid is that the vendor is to provide all other supplies including plain paper to complete each assignment.  The hospital will provide any special letterhead, envelopes, etc.  How do you provide the paper and probably the toner if you are doing this remotely?  Would there be any other expenses that would fall under other supplies that you can think of other than toner and paper?  How much toner and paper do I provide or should I ask the hospital what they use on a  weekly basis?  I would assume I have the right to ask questions as to how much paper, toner, how many lines they do each day or week on average.  I want this account very much but I do not want to have to pay a cheap line rate and I need to make this worth my while.  Thank you very much for you help. 
Ditto that. Some of us are just extremely lucky and are there at the right moment. The rest of us...
I would NOT recommend Transcend at the moment.Worked there recently for several months, and it was
a HUGE disappointment.  Very antiquated platform - total chaos on account rules - shuffling thru piles of papers for each job - horrible.  Supervisors were totally unorganized. Most accounts had no work. I had work, but it was just a huge bummer...job was opposite of everything promised...or implied.
I totally loved Instant Text from the moment I started using it.
I imported my Expanders from my PRD that I used in WP5.1 so that I didn't have a great learning curve. You can import a lot of different programs expansions so that you can use what you're used to. The other part of the program I truly like is the ability to make compilations from files of reports that I've already type. IT makes the lists for me of phrases that are often used in the reports. IT is less profitable to use if you're just expanding words. Why exactly are you expanding entries that you don't intend? Guess I don't understand.
I hope this applies to companies like Medquist. I hope there
isn't a way they can get around it. I REALLY hope.
What's a SOAP?
It's an acronym for SUBJECTIVE, OBJECTIVE, ASSESSMENT, PLAN.  I recall back in the late 1970s when the hospital at which I was working as an RN began requiring us to write all of our notes in SOAP format.  What a pain!
It depends what format the client wants: I had an account where the only double spaces were after the heading (Name and DOB) and at the very end before the name of the dictating physician.
The body of the note was all single spaced, no double space between S, O, A and P.
PT SOAP work
I am an MTSO and I would be interested in talking to you further. Please email me.
Well that's quite a soap opera . . .
I used to live in Southern California and your description reminded me of someone I used to know, especially about interrogating the waiter. Loved that you called her the Bee. You sound very down to earth and she is not. As for the clothes - everything has a price doesn't it. She's probably shocked that those clothes didn't mean that much to you and you'd do anything to keep on receiving them. Good for you.
SOAP is a style.
Subjective, Objective, Assessment, Prognosis. Some offices like to their office notes typed in this kind of format, others don't.
Maybe you put that you do SOAP notes and HR
What are SOAP notes?
soap notes

Yes that is correct they are chart or clinical notes.  The dentist that I used to work for liked the charts written up in that fashion.

S- subjective

O- objective

A- assessment

P- plan

SOAP Notes

I may sound dumb, but what is a SOAP note??

I used to wath soap operas.....
Now I just come to this board every day, lol.
HELP with SOAP sheet issue please!

I have my my own account of three OB-GYNs that use a SOAP sheet type heading on a regular piece of paper. It takes up about 2.5" on the top of the first page of each patient note. It is paper that is purchased from a printing company and they write in the patient's name, vitals, LMP, type of contraception, etc. in the appropriate areas. I have my margins set so I start typing under this info. The problem I have had is these sheets will jam up in any of the three printers I have and I just bought a new all-in-one printer and these sheets will actually get so stuck I have to tear them out of my printer! I know it is because they have been handled, written on, sometimes have corners folded, etc. I normally have a second page I print and sometimes even a third, and I print all the notes at one time or it would take me forever to print out their transcription as I normally have 30-40 pages from each doc! I even made sure the paper I purchased for second, third pages is the same weight as this SOAP heading sheet and it makes no difference. It does not jam with every first page/header page, but it does it on average at least three times while I am printing out one doc's work. This wastes a lot of my time, is frustrating, and I feel it is going to ruin my printer/roller bar with it jamming so badly.

When I spoke with the OM, she said they would quit sending these SOAP sheets with the info on them and then they would just add them to the patient's chart as the first page after I return the transcription. However, I just received a message when I returned home that the docs are not happy with this and do not want it done this way.

When I met with the OM, she said they can change this pre-printed "form" to a half page (which will save them money). I am not exactly sure why they do not like the way things have been changed other than this pertinent info is no longer directly on that first page of the patient's note.

Does anyone have ANY suggestions as to what I could do that they might agree to? I know I had mentioned to the OM when I met with her (to discuss going digital) that perhaps they could use the same form on a half page or even smaller as a label to adhere to the patient note and she said "no way"! They will NOT use adhesive anything. I need to resolve this problem TODAY so sure would appreciate some suggestions/feedback.


The soap under the sheet really works.
My husband thought I was crazy but it did work.
Just like an H&P, but sometimes without headings, sometimes use the SOAP designations. nm
Does anybody know who types scripts for soaps or other TV shows?  I've been an MT for 30 years and am beyond burned out with medical reports.  Figure I could use a change and thought I'd really enjoy something like this.  Thanks!
