    they're wrong

    The report is not valid unless the doctor signs it.  If there is something incorrect on there and he still signs it anyway, he is verifying that the information is accurate and then he is responsible for the error, not you.  I don't believe a transcriptionist has ever been held legally liable.

    You're wrong.
    He was not making speeches about the war when the hurricane was coming or after.   I think everyone was too busy attending meetings.   But at least he wasn't blaming everyone else like Mr. Mayor.
    No, you're not wrong.
    You're still WRONG!!!
    You're too busy trying to prove everyone else wrong that you're not even paying attention to the original question, which was why do newscasters say "pleaded guilty." The answer is because that's the proper use of the word: The past tense of plead is PLEADED. The word "pled" is an Americanized version of it, probably derived from lead/led, hence plead/pled. It's acceptable - but not as proper as pleaded, which is why newscasters, public speakers, etc. use it.

    So, before you go ahead and plaster a big WRONG!!! under someone else's comment (which is so completely obnoxious), make sure that you are correct and know what everyone is talking about in the first place. Maybe you're the one who needs to do the studying up.
    I think you're wrong.
    In this instance anyway. I don't see how they can stop someone off shore from posting questions like the OP.
    They're wrong.
    Whoever told you that it is the law that you must give a SS# to register your child is misinformed. A SS# is not to be used for identification per the original intent of the SS. I have never given the school a SS# for any of my kids and they had no problem at all; they assigned a student number to each one. If this person is insistent, ask to speak to their superior or contact a school board member--that usually gets the problem solved in a hurry.
    No, you're wrong.
    The rate of pay in this industry has NOTHING to do with intelligence. There are companies willing to work for less than others. Hospitals/clinics, etc., want to see an improved bottom line, so the contract goes to the lowest bidder. It's more about the cost of living and the standard of living in the country where the work is being done.
    No, you're wrong....
    Please understand that not all Americans have the same ideas.  Some of us see things from a different angle.  Do not be closeminded.  No one is asking you to agree, but have some respect and try to learn from others' perspectives.
    You're right, everyone else is wrong. There.
    How do you know you're being trained wrong?

    Can you give some specifics?  BTW, many MT rules do not follow standard English grammar rules.  We either go by the BOS (AAMT Book of Style) or per account specs provided.  Each job is different.  If you want a paycheck, you learn to adapt to their particular style.

    I seriously doubt anybody's going to hire an untrained QA person.  A person has to have years of experience as an MT before doing QA.  Honestly, if you're that unhappy, quit.

    I think you're all wrong. It's all about getting the work done
    for the hospital in the fastest time possible and my company doesn't care if I do it or if you do it (if you worked for us) or if someone else does it, just get it done for the client. So complain as you like, find somewhere else to work if you need, but get the work done. That's the bottom line.
    you're not wrong..just full of yourself.

    I dunno if you're wrong or not...
    or even a shrew or not. If it were me, though, and in fact it was me a couple of months ago, I'd not go out to lunch a couple of times to be able to get my keyboard. How much is this ergonomic keyboard you are needing anyway? When my ergonomic keyboard bit the dust a couple of months ago, I got on e-bay and got mine for $8.00 ($1.00 bid, $7.00 S&H). It came right away and my soreness and achiness for those few days went right away! But, even though this keyboard retails $50.00, I am wondering how much the one you want costs; way over $100.00? I guess what I'm getting at is I'd just take my kids to the park with Colonel Sanders AND get my ergomic keyboard too. I am sorry that your husband responded so coldly. My husband would bend over backwards to help find a for me to get the keyboard, but I can't see where I'd even make it his problem. I would just adjust my budget so I could get my keyboard and let my husband know what I was doing to be able to get it (and this is what I did a couple of months ago). I guess I don't see how this is such a huge issue; we're only talking about a couple of weeks, right? Of course your health and well-being is of great importance, and an ergonomic keyboard is a high priority because of your symptoms, but would it be that awful to adjust your budget just one time so you could get the keyboard? I guess I don't get to get out that much anyway, so missing a couple of lunches with friends wouldn't be that bad for me!

    I've totally missed something here I am sure, right?

    Anyway, I do hope your symptoms get much better soon; take care of yourself, especially regarding CTS.
    You're right, hubby & son are wrong. :) nm
    You're on the wrong board!
    This particular board is for medical transcriptionists, so we can't help you. Sorry!
    Either way, you're in the wrong place. sm
    Please read your own message. You made two errors when you neglected to take out two headers not needed, IMO. I don't mean to be rude, but you said it yourself.
    You're totally wrong.

    The hospitals know exactly where their work is being done.  Large facilities contracting with offshore (or US nationals who provide the offshore liason for them) do it knowingly and with one goal in mind - savings.  It's unfortunate, but it's happening every day.

    No you're not wrong but my statement stands too
    If it was your daughter missing and the media basically concentrated on a demographic other than yours, you'd be wondering why you can't get help for your daughter too. Media looks for sensationalism and the since outrage currently involves young children or affluent, pretty, white young adult females, that's what the media flocks to.
    If you don't know what a typo is, you're in the wrong business.
    This is a message board, not a paid document.
    you're wrong, I type for an MD w/ADHD...nm

    Fantasia doing just great- you're wrong..sm


    All about Fantasia and what she's doing, TV, songs, etc. 

    For those who think Clay was a better more soulful singer than Ruben....those people who think that..... evidently have not one soulful fiber in their body....

    Gaydar is what Clay Aiken is all about......to each his/her own....

    Sorry, I think you're all wrong. This is the sexiest man alive...!

    Nope, you got that wrong. What we're afraid of is
    You're both right and you're both wrong.
    There are too many variables to give an accurate--or even estimated--count. Using a standard 1-inch margin, you may have short lines and lots of paragraphs and get a lower count. If no paragraphs and it's a full page of text from margin to margin, you get your higher count. You can't possibly use an average count because of variables, which is why no one can commit to a pat answer.
    LOL, maybe you should stop reading anti-Bush blogs because you're wrong.
    wrong, wrong, wrong. work is being outsourced because of $. period. not because of unqualified MTs
    You're probably doing nothing wrong, employee status seems to be the norm with IC status primaril
    SE status instead of IC? For me,SE status is heaven -with part of taxes paid and flexibility in my schedule. Have you ever applied to MDI-MD? They only accept qualified, experienced MTs and stress quality in their transcription. From what I read of your qualifications, it sure would be worth contacting them.

    Per "see mssgs" comment regarding age discrimination later on in this discussion, I'm 64 - no problem getting hired at a line rate higher than average. Age is not a factor with MDI-MD - knowledge and quality is !!!
    MQ sucks!
    Perhaps the OP is someone new to this rotten bunch called MedQuist and maybe new to this racket in general. Innocence is so cute in a newbie!
    MQ Sucks

    Take it from some one who worked on the inside. you think you MT's are treated like xxxx? you have no Idea what an actual employee has to go through. specially in a certain office. Now I can't talk to badly about MQ as a coporation unless you count INTENTIONAL FRAUD bad but hey it is always the "right thing" to do when you come clean after you have been caught right? Considering they went through great lengths to hide their inside coruption....

    Now the people that work in the office, lets just say if this is how women would run the world boy am i happy that men are in charge. These ladies are vindictive, mean, ugly, and unholy. They take advantage people over left and right with no regards to ethics and morals. trust me i would know. and all of you who are treated kindly by this office must do either a lot of xxx kissing or be on their good side. I have seen some xxxx in my day that would disgust most of you. So those who are defenders of Medquist are completely in the dark about what they are talking about. Maybe the coporation as a whole has matured some but the office in SO. Cal. and you know where i am talking about sucks. beyound sucks makes me want to throw up! 

    can i get an AMEN? (sorry if my spelling sucks)

    OMG! The BO sucks!
    I was in a Walmart once in Connecticut and thought I was going to vomit! What's up with people???? You're in the store, buy some soap for goodness sake!
    Wow, that sucks!
    Good luck on finding another job if you haven't already...
    It sucks

    that sucks
    I guess I waited too long? I just found out today that my company is being audited by AT&T. Basically some suits are coming in next week to decide whether it is financially frugal to keep the center open or not. Since att owns practically all the major telecommunications companies now, there is a lot more competition for my job, which means they won't bat an eye at firing over 300 employees. Yet another sign of our failing economy. I might be completely jobless soon. Where are people like me supposed to go from here? I love transcription and was planning on doing it for a very long time.
    I know and it sucks....
    If my accounts go VR/SR and pay what the above poster mentioned, I will have to *edit* 3-1/2 times the lines to make what i make now. So, my paycheck that is 16,000 lines this Friday would have to be somewhere around 51,000 lines. I don't think there are enough hours in a day for me to get that much. lol Good thing I decided to go back to school this fall and I'm steering clear of the medical field. lol
    Nothing sucks more

    In my opinion, its always what they want to hire you to do and its always the hardest temp job to take - receptionists are magically expected to know "everything" about a company and every employee that works there.  If companies had any sense they'd make a more seasoned employee (that actually KNOWS some answers) take the receptionist job and let the temp file or make copies.  But the seasoned employees refuse to do reception work - because everyone knows it sucks!  Then they act like they're doing you the ultimate favor if they drag themselves to the reception desk long enough to let you pee twice a day - and sneer at you because you don't KNOW Mr. Jones always plays golf on Thursdays at 2, and Mr. Smith always covers for him...how the heck WOULD you know that unless you'd worked there more than 5 minutes!  Oh, and by the time you've learnt enough mini-facts like these to actually make you good at that job, the assignment is over - and none of these vitally important tidbits will mean a thing at the next temp job.

    I finally had to tell every temp agency I applied at that I refuse reception work - it was all I was ever offered, and I got really sick of being treated like I was stupid because I didn't know every idiosyncrasy of a company the second I strolled in the door.  Temps already get treated like second-class citizens at most companies, which is bad enough on your self esteem, but to be chided all day because you "should have" known the unknowable and having to beg to be let to have a pee break is just too demeaning!

    Softscript sucks!
    Run as far away as you can from them!!
    Work on my end sucks! But is MDI
    so that should explain why.
    This was on and off over about 5 hours---sucks!
    sucks is a compliment.
    I know that sort of sucks, but that's what the gov
    Truthfully, imo, ES sucks!!!
    I will admit that EditScript is kind of a neat program.

    HOWEVER, whereas I used to make 9+ cpl, on the same account with ES I now make 8 cpl for transcription and 3.5 cpl for editing. Not only that, I no longer get paid for headers.

    Also, the longer the hospital uses ES, the more editing and less transcribing I do. There are only so many reports being dictated, so no matter if I increase my speed and do more reports, the work WILL run out.

    As a result, my pay has been effectively CUT IN HALF!

    Thank you very much!!!

    After 25+ years in this field, I'm ready to quit.
    iType sucks
    Aww, that sucks. It isn't your fault...sm
    though. It is the dang machine.
    That's one thing that sucks
    about this profession. There are so many factors involved and things to learn, and we are not compensated properly in regard to that. There should be a handicap or something. It would also help if the companies would at least be patient and understanding about the breaking in process.

    I, too, get all fumbly and freaked when starting new accounts. I hate that. We need to come with reset buttons for times when the fight or flight mode kicks in and makes things harder. Lol! :)
    For the most part, non-ASR dictation SUCKS.
    That's why I wondered why people would give up ASR to do regular dictation. What's left is junk from dictators no ASR could be trained.
    procrastination sucks has the best advice-just do it!! NOW! nm
    speech recognition sucks
    They are selling it to docs and hospitals based on one thing only, it will cost them less money. Guess why?

    It will cost US more money.

    The only good thing I have to say about it is this: I know one of the major hospitals in my area is trying it and failing miserably.

    They came out of the barn with this donkey a wee bit too early.
    Agree on the K-mart. The one near us SUCKS.
    Yep, that about sums it up. Weekend TV sucks.
    Sounds like their training sucks! nm
    Much easier to make lines, but the pay sucks
