This is a joke, right?  You endangered your 16--year-old by moving her in with a man, a crazy man at that?  Are you serious?  You obviously need some mental help for child endangerment. 

Sorry, missed the last part of your post. Just cut her off and stop sending work. When she asks, tell her you didn't think she was interested anymore.
Right?! haha...
Maybe she should just go test if she thinks it is so easy. I bet she would get a rude awakening then.
Haha...well said!
This is only the beginning, not only for MTs...for professionals everywhere.

The other poster had a point though about our elected officials lining their pockets with the money that is being made. Go vote too! Vote for candidates who want jobs to come back to the US and not just ones who say they do, but ones who actually show it. A petition will only go so far. If you want to see change, you have to look even higher.

As far as choosing a different doctor, it is possible even with a limited plan and should be done by all of us.

Good job though...glad someone finally did it. :O)
man, where did the "was" come from haha - sorry! (NM)
Haha! the joke is on me.
I reread my post right after hitting enter and saw I spelled "their" instead of there! It must be getting to me tonight! Sorry!

Haha...I read it once and understood exactly
what she said. She didn't get the face lift.
Hey thanks.. I never did do well in Math in school haha

Haha! My cat watches me, and I think she can read.....
she already knows how to turn on the printer & the fax machine, so who's to say she's not logging on when I'm asleep and sending sensitive information God-knows-where?
haha...Sounds like something my husband would do...
although he is afraid if he gets it done it won't work at all...
Haha - if that's a 'medical exam', we might as well - SM
call our docs from home and just let them transcribe it. Oh wait. Isn't transcribing what WE'RE supposed to do?
Lordy I hope so! haha nm

Not biting ... it's been discussed in heated detail on about pg 3 of this board. haha
Oh, someone benefits from AAMT - AAMT DOES!
HAHA! Yes! I have those daily! But it's not really work as I work nights, it's little things l
turning on the pool filter in the morning and then in the afternoon running out there because I thought I forgot to turn it on. Or preheating the oven and then 5 minutes later saying "shoot! I forgot to preheat the oven!" It's really bad. And I'm only 31. I'm not 90!

I don't know if dementia or Alzheimer's runs in my family, but this could be a sign of something to come. Or as my husband says - you jut don't pay attention to much. He's probably right!
Well hey, spelling a lot as one word is commonplace too; does that make it okay?? Do they really think MDs keep up with all the illogical changes they come up with? Do they realize that MDs actually take the time to edit stuff they don't recognize to be correct? What good is it if it actually causes MDs to stop and edit??

It's just too bad that AAMT has not taken an assertive stand for the American MT and keeping confidential patient records in this country. For such a long time medical record administrators have fought the concerns of medical transcriptionists since the 60's. There was always a divisive agenda from medical record librarians (as they were called then) toward the transcriptionist. They didn't want to see the Transcriptionist come to the forefront of the medical records industry, nor did they like the income transcriptionists made(then) -WHAT? a transcriptionist make more money than a medical records librarian? I still see it now - you see AHIMA's hand down the back zipper of AAMT puppeting what direction they want AAMT to go - minimize the importance of the professional medical transcriptionist and rushing to automate the medical record with ASR and EMR. Ask youself this question - how many of you believe that many of the "QA" people at the nationals are discarded or displaced medical record technicians or the like? Many of the medical record administrators lost their jobs about 10 years ago during hefty layoffs when hospitals began a surge of outsourcing and many of these people had to seek jobs in the transcription industry for national companies as sales people, administrators, and QA people. I can't begin to tell you how many RHIT people haven't a clue about medical transcription. I've worked with so many who got a lot of things wrong legally but hey, because they were above the transcription department, they were right. Don't question them.
Have to afford those trips to Hawaii somehow.
I know.  It is so strange.  I was just on the AAMT forum.  I know if I start making "waves" I'll be considered a troublemaker.   It is really said what is happening in that organization when it could provide such a boost.
That is how I have been feeling.  A friend of mine says I need to run, but I'm afraid of how it would be handled. -
Thanks so much.  You are right.  I will contact this gentleman.
well, according to the AAMT BOS...sm
"Always place periods inside quotation marks."  <<< see, like I did!
Ah, yes. The AAMT.
Medware offshores. They don't pay well, either. I see by your other post that you won't work for acusisindia, what's the difference? Offshoring is offshoring.

AAMT = Against American Medical Transcriptionists
I don't think you read my message clearly.  There are many options to AAMT, not just one.  AAMT is pushing for licensure as it is.  That will do just as much harm as anything else in the end.
