SCIP or SKIP protocol

Posted By: Kelly on 2007-08-16
In Reply to:

Has anyone ever heard of SCIP or SKIP protocol? This is a surgeon talking about prophylactic antibiotics. I have found on the internet SCIP protocol for skin care intervention program but am not sure if this is reliable info. Does anyone know which way to spell this/what this is and have a source to back it up?

I don't think so...they have changed the protocol--sm
for numbers, in particular, at least three times in the last five years. I know, because it gets annoying to have to change the way I do things everytime they want to sell another book for $80 a pop. They started out with numbers 1 through 10 being spelled out and using numbers above 10. Then it was numbers instead of roman numerals, and then it was back to using all numbers and not spelling them out....shheeesh make up your minds! and that is all within the last five 5 years. I swear they do it just to sell more books and not because any of it is right or wrong, or *standard*, because it isn't. JMO
ARDSNet protocol
What is the correct way to transcribe ARDSNet? I've seen it as ARDSNet and ARDS-net.
File transfer protocol
FTP is File Transfer Protocol.

It is a method of sending files between two computers that requires a software program to accomplish the task. Think of it like Windows Explorer to move files between computers.

You need to have a server that acts as a holder where files can be uploaded to and downloaded from by parties who have access to that specific site, identified by their ISP numbers and not a name (like mtstars.com).

FTP stands for file transfer protocol.

It is transferring files.  You log onto the FTP site using software, such as Core FTP Lite that is free, then you can upload and download files on the company's FTP server.

Here's the link to the free download of Core FTP Lite.

I have worked for MQ for 10 years. Started with them after 10 years of ESL experience. I got 3 cents more a line when I started with them than the local company here paid. I was never able to skip any report. Transcribed what I got, I did! I agree with previous poster about getting paid for experience. Experience is what counts in my book! I CAN transcribe the ESL dictators. I SHOULD be paid MORE for those reports. If I spent all day doing dictation that was perfect - clear, good speakers, no backing up, waiting, etc., I would make a killing in the money department. But, having to spend all day transcribing ESL, whose dictation gets worse by the day, I make nothing. I am making too little for way too much effort. I got the phone call the other day. They left a message on the answering machine. He was so bored as he read from his script! I could tell him as much as he told me in the message. What a waste of money for MQ to do this. Must have been a business expense.

I call him a Dat - a dog-cat combo.  He has a wide vocabulary of human words that he knows.  He's particularly responsive to the words cheese burger and pizza.
Is this an every 3 second type skip? s/m
I get many files from different places and it seems from one client in particular, sometimes I will get a 3-second skip on files.  Once the skip starts, I have to close the file, close Start/stop, delete the file from my system and then re-download the file.  This seems to take care of the problem, but some days it doesn't.  I have no idea the reason why, but this is just what I do.
Unfortunately, CS seems to be the easiest debt to skip out on
You'll get into more trouble if you bounce a $25 check. I have used one of those private agencies because my ex had moved out of state and once that happens, if the ex doesn't want to pay and moves around in jobs, you can pretty much forget about getting anything.

The private agency works a lot faster, but the contracts are very complicated and you are pretty much signing up for the life of the CS obligation; otherwise there has be nonpayment of CS for a year before you can end the contract. And yes they take a big chunk of money but at the time I thought it was better than getting nothing at all.

But in the end, once payments have been established, the private agency ends up filtering the payment through your local CSEA anyway.

I think your best bet is to use some kind of locator service and if you can get a good address provide that to your local CSEA.

I wish they had an "America's Most Wanted" for deadbeat dads/moms. It's amazing to me that it is seemingly so easy to stop paying, change jobs, and just not be found.
Skip the games but here's an idea sm
My friend had a baby shower. The invite asked everyone to bring a pack of diapers to be entered in a $40 gift certificate for Applebees. She left with a HUGE bag filled with diapers. That was the game if you want to call it a game.
Not worth the trouble - skip it

If they're vegetarians, skip the dip.

My neices are both vegetarians. Check out Vegweb.com for tons of vegetarian recipes.

I agree. I'd skip the school SM
altogether. It might take a while to find a training position doing MT, but not nearly as long as the school, and nothing matches actually doing the work to learn. As suggested, I would take--and nail!--a terminology course at the very least. I started with on-the-job training, but I took anatomy and physiology courses in night school. True, the labs spent hacking up various parts of a cadaver with nursing and premed students and studying tissues under the microscope were overkill for what we do, but I definitely recommend skipping the expensive trade school and taking courses at a local college, or on line perhaps?
Easy enough to just skip over subjects that don't interest you? NM
Also, at times I'll skip a job due to length, not
If I know I've only got 30 more minutes to work and have to leave, I'll skip over a 25-minute long file, regardless of the ease/difficulty factor, so I like that we have the option. I can finish a few more shorter reports for the client that way whereas I might have otherwise logged off altogether. BUT, I also do my fair share of the hard ESLs and long files at the beginning of shift. I used to be 100% against skipping any files, but OTOH, if someone knows they can't do that ESL's work, maybe it's best for someone who CAN to take them on so the reports are more accurate. I would at least hope that the MTs have given it a good effort first though. I agree this might not be abused as much if MTSOs would pay for difficulty factor, though.
And supposedly they are to be fired for that on DQS. I bet they are. They break the report and skip
to the next one on DQS. I get it all the time and I report it and guess what, nothing happens to them but I figure they will hang themselves eventually. They inevitably drop off the account because they really cant do it anyway.
Skip the games - focus on the mom-to-be. I HATE going to those showers. nm

Just skip over it.. A little lively debate spices things up.
Actually, it is quite easy to skip jobs, and I work for a national. sm

Depending upon the account, just press the appropriate number on the C-phone, and *poof* you're at the next job.  In my case, I have no "proof" per se, but when jobs skip from 7 a.m. to 10 a.m. then to 1 p.m., etc., and then it gets back to "normal" when you get to the non-ESL docs where I guess they stopped working.  it's not too hard to figure out that someone took what they wanted and left the rest.  It doesn't matter to me.  As has been stated, the MT who cherrypicks cheats himself/herself out of the chance to master everything and assure himself/herself of a larger pool of work.  That goes also for those who limit themselves to only certain work types.  Sure, we all have our preferences (I prefer admit notes and consults), but if you can do everything, then you're more likely not to be one of the ones coming here complaining of no work.

Just my opinion, and you know we all have one.  Happy Friday the 13th!   I have the weekend off for once, and it is actually beautiful weather here.  Yippee! 

In Word I can't see my field boxes anymore that I use F11 to skip around to. Does anyone know ho
It means to skip the jobs in your work queue that - sm
are by difficult dictators, or have no line-count-bolstering templates, or require too much backing up, re-listening, sentence restructuring, or nose-in-reference time to get in your minimum lines. That's especially true if the employer doesn't weight the job's pay by difficulty. Most MTs voice disapproval of the practice, but sometimes an gal's gotta do what a gal's gotta do, in order to survive and make that next car payment, rent check, or grocery bill.
I find you do tend to skip maybe a word sometimes when you dont reread. I guess

your brain doesnt keep up or something.  I dont know what causes that.

Skip it. No one cares. Either you're good on the test or you're not.
Skip Christmas Day and do drinks/snacks Christmas
Eve and spend a peaceful Christmas doing whatever it is you want to do.  If you're all of 47 years old you're evidently a slow learner  : )
