I've worked for companies that needed people
specifically to do certain reports.  I have been hired to exclusively do ERs and discharge summaries before.  It wasn't cherry picking either.  They needed someone to catch up their backlog and keep the reports within TAT permanently.  Evidently, other people were cherry picking and bypassing these report types because they're not as good of money makers as Ops or H&Ps.
Isn't that wild?!! At least a few people will be needed as MTs/editors in the years to come. nm
On what planet?
First, relatively few people stay in the same place for 15 years, and even if they did, the technology would not stay the same for 15 years.  In addition to learning all sorts of specialty terminology over the years, tech savvy would include going from a Selectric with a baseplate (minimal memory), to an IBM mag-tape, to an IBM 5520, to two different types of Lanier No-Problem, to a Wang; to a PC with WordStar, then MuliMate, then WordPerfect, then Word; PC-Dart, DocQScribe and Transurfer not to mention Windows 3.1, Windows 95, Windows 98 and Windows XP.  There are probably others I've forgotten!  I'm afraid the letter writer is too willing to believe that you can't teach an old dog new tricks.  Or is it a manifestation of not wanting to invest in employees?  It's always somebody else's job to do any sort of training or re-training at all, apparently.
Not on this planet, baby
Wake up and smell the coffee.
I feel like I'm from another planet!

What ARE you guys talking about?  It is intriguing, but it's driving me crazy. 

Everyone on this planet deserves the right
to a decent life with their families. Offshoring the jobs in this country is going to slow destroy us. Most of our skyscrapers are owned by the Japanese. Customer Service for companies has been taken over by foreign countries . This country has so much and is so great simply because this country was created by hard work and determination. Every piece that we give away takes away from us and our children and their children, and so on. It is not a matter of wanting someone to suffer because we are not a greedy country. We do so much for other countries. But, if we don't start thinking about ourselves, we are going to speak Chinese, Japanese, and English will be the second language.
LOL! Yes Bama is its own little sin-taxed planet!
Where is this job? On this planet of MT? Holy crap!
as Frank Barone would say. 
What planet are you on? Did you read the post
MQ is simply the most corrupt MT company on the planet.

Watch and see MQ implode.  From one who knows from the inside looking out. 

For those who declare their love and loyalty to MQ, it's not reciprocated and the plans in the works by the MQ constantly changing management will soon let you see just how little they care about American MTs.  It's really kind of sad and the only hope for MQMTs is MQ being bought out.  Why do you think they keep changing management? 


Same planet as you, hon! And you're TRAINING the program right now. Duh!
That's the whole process per individual dictator, per individual account.  Takes a wee bit of fine tuning, and in a few months, its PERFECT. Just minor editing. Wake up and smell the coffee.  You're training it and teaching it! You're not seeing the finished product, cause it doesn't need you anymore! Some of you just post so foolishly - and anyone could know the facts if they just paid attention and asked questions! You are training ASR and when you're done training it, its 1000 times better than the average skilled MT these days!
But do you believe this is the only person on teh planet you could have been successfully married to
I doubt it.
Aliens from the amoral Planet Roche
You are clearly educationally sub normal. Has Accutane destroyed so many neurons inside your head that you think it's safe? If you want to go on taking this stuff, despite all the risks, that's your look-out but kindly allow the Food and Drug Administration to protect the lives of other people. You'll probably be gaga within five years and dead within ten, so we won't have to read any more of your rubbish.

Do you have any idea how many people this drug has killed (and not not just through suicide) or how many lies dermatologist-lackeys and Roche have told about it? Hundreds have committed suicide and tens of thousands have suffered permanent damage. Go to www.accutaneaction.com for details of independent studies on the drug and information about the villainous manufacturer. [Described as "No 1 Corporate Criminal" by a leading business magazine.] It wasn't Saddam the USAF should have been bombing in 2003: it was b*****ds like Roche. Drug companies kill many times more Americans, every year, than Bin Laden did in 2001 [and, besides, we know that the war in Iraq had absolutely nothing to do with terrorism. It was all about oil production and prices].

At the end of the day, Accutane is unnecessary, certainly for mild or moderate acne and, in the overwhelming majority of cases, dermatologists were prescribing it- against the terms of the drug's license- for such conditions.

In the final analysis, Acne, no matter how bad, is not a life-threatening condition and is certainly not worth the risk of brain damage; turning your baby into a barely human freak-show; being chemically castrated; or ending up with a CFS-type illness through mitochondrial damage and dying prematurely. [There are several other treatments, which are more effective than Accutane and much, much less dangerous. Drug companies and (ever-conservative) doctors don't want anyone to know about them.]

The list of "side" effects is a very long one. In fact, Accutane has one of the biggest entries of all time, in Webster's Physicians Desk Reference. It's no wonder an FDA official labelled Accutane as the fourth or fifth most dangerous legal drug.

By selling patients a chemotherapy drug, as if it were a teaspoonful of cod liver oil, Roche have made themselves the Nazi war criminals of the late Twentieth Century. I'll qualify that statement, in a moment.

It was not a huge shock to learn that Hoffman-La Roche is a Swiss, family-owned firm. After all, it was old, Swiss family firms, which melted down gold teeth from the death camps; and fenced paintings, stolen from Jews. Their quaint, family-owned government [Das Schwytzerdeutsches Reich?] allowed the Wehrmacht to transport anything it liked into Italy, extending WW2, there, by eighteen months. To the Swiss, life means nothing and money means everything. That was true in the 1940s and it's still true today. The Swiss government even threatens corporate whistleblowers with jail, so close is the relationship between government and big business. Has anyone ever thought of a imposing a de-nazification program on Switzerland, so that it might end up as liberal as (western) Germany?

Now back to the alleged similarity to war criminals.
Like Josef Mengele, who asphyxiated Jewish children at 40,000 feet or froze them to death in baths of ice, Hoffman-La Roche didn't obtain INFORMED consent.

At least, it can be said that Mengele's research had practical benefits for Luftwaffe pilots. He may have been mad, perverted, evil and all the rest but he did it for "the Fatherland" and carried out research on sound scientific principles. Roche, on the other hand, were only ever interested in making more and more money and bought "evidence", every time cracks started to appear in their reputation.

They lied about what their drug really was and covered up its side effects. They hired "scientists" and doctors from various parts of the World and bribed them to tell the regulatory bodies that Accutane was safe. [These people belong in jail too, as "collaborators".]

Roche even laughed, in internal memos which flew around its American HQ in Nutley NJ, at how ignorant the outside World was of the horrific side effects, particularly the teratogenic [monster-creating] effects on the unborn. How would you like it, if you ended up with half a brain? Oh, you already did. Sorry.

This display of arrogance was their downfall. It was when these memos were leaked to the FDA, that a raid was staged and computers and documents seized. That is why such stringent controls were placed on the use of Accutane. In effect, even the manufacturer was admitting (in private) that it is lethal.

Because of the company's deceit and dishonesty over many years, the patients (or more likely their parents) were misinformed and weren't in a position to take an INFORMED decision about whether to take Accutane.

At the end of the day, a child murderer is still a child murderer, whether he lives in a luxury mansion near Basel and is a "pillar of society" or he is associated with a discredited, demonic regime. Everyone should be equal, before the law.
I'm afraid my cat, my baby, doesn't have much longer on this planet

She is almost 20.  Her fur is matted, cause she doesn't groom herself anymore, I've cut off what I can without cutting her.  She doesn't hear well, and I have noticed in the past few weeks that she doesn't see well either.  Thankfully, she is still eating and yelling at the dogs, so I guess she feels okay, but I cry just writing this, cause I know I will be kind of lost without her when the time comes. 

I'll be watching Puppy Bowl on Animal Planet!
medication help

Looking for the correct spelling of acetrianam ACE trianam?


Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!  That was it!  Have a great day!


That was it, thanks soo much

Anyone ever heard of the intramuscular mega C Penicillin.  this is a pt with HIV
medication look-up
This is my first time posting to this site. For anyone interested, here are three very helpful websites: Drugstore.com, Drugs.com, Medword.com. They are very helpful in looking up medication and medical terms.
Medication question


I am trying to figure out a medication and it sounds like chromagin, cromagin, or something like that.  Has anyone heard of that?  It is to be taken three times daily...Thanks!!!

Medication website
Anyone know of a good site to go to for a list of medications?  Thanks!
Do you take any kind of medication sm
before you start work? Don't mean to be nosy but in my case, I work 6a-2p.  I take my blood pressure medication at 5:30a. By 7:00-8:00, I am ready for bed and literally fall asleep at my desk. I take my break from 8:45 to 9:30, come back and I am fine. Doc said my medicine "peaks" at that time then the level falls off.  Asked him to change it and he refuses to, said if it works then why try another. I have tried taking it at different times a day, but it really works the best at 5:30. So, I am stuck. Have you tried turning on the radio or tv or even opening a window?  Sometimes that helps for me. 
Looking for a medication website
I used to have a link to a website that if you only knew three letters to the medication it would give you options. My computer had since crashed and I lost that website and cannot find it. A lot of times I can hear only a few syllables of the med they are saying. Does anyone know a website that you can put a partial part in and get choices?
Has anyone heard of "chlorophen" as a medication?

Rebound headaches are from medication
in pain, you may use the meds too often. The theory behind the rebound headache is that the overuse of drugs makes the headache rebound after your body uses all of the medication. An OTC drug or a Rx that is taken too often causes an episode where your brain gets relief from the pain, likes the effect, and then signals "pain" in its search for more of the drug, and you increase dosages to get more relief. Your medication becomes less and less effective and you create a cycle of misery. (This is adapted from the website, "Migraines for Dummies" (even though I don't have migraines.) It's the best explanation I have found on the web for rebound HA. I just want relief.
You truly have some anger problems. Maybe you should look into medication for yourself.
pain medication s/p arthoplasty
Pain medication is usually required for approximately 2-4 weeks s/p total arthroplasty. However, each patient's need is individualized. Oxycontin is the drug of choice for chronic pain management.
Do you take blood pressure medication? sm
They can make you extremely tired, too. I take Toprol XL and have for 13 years. It peaks about 3 hours after I take it I have trouble staying awake at the PC from 6 am to about 10:30 am. I literally fall asleep with fingers right on the keyboard. It was so bad that I finally changed to the afternoon shift. I asked my doc about it and he said try taking it at night. Well, that brought on the headaches I was trying to avoid. He said to take 1/2 in the a.m. and 1/2 in the p.m. No dice, still had headaches. He won't change my pills, says if it isn't broke, don't try to fix it. He wants to keep my pressure on the low side. My only solution was changing shifts and now I don't fall asleep at the keyboard anymore. I can get 10 hours of sleep at night but still fall asleep about 3 hours after taking that medication. I'm fine if I am up and about and doing things but sitting at the keyboard is another story.
I beg to differ - not all kids need medication....sm
Many with ADD/ADHD can learn just fine without medication as long as you break the tasks into smaller segments and implement visual aides.

No drug is completely safe. They all have chemicals in them. Ritalin, which you mentioned, caused my nephew to have growth retardation while he was on it and it was only after he came off that stuff that he started growing.

It's not the media afraid of drugging kids. There are many of us out there that don't believe that drugging a child is the correct answer. Sure there are kids that really need it if they can't stay focused at all, but asking a child to stay focused for an hour or more without a break when they're say 7 years old is extreme, especially if they're able to learn the same information if it's broken down into 3 20 minute sessions in the day.

Kids are now being pushed to learn more at a rate that for some of them taxes where their maturity levels are, and this can aggravate things like ADD/ADHD, especially when they don't have the recess breaks at school to give them a diversion from the classroom for a while. I'm glad that in my state some of the school systems have started mandating recess again - and those schools test scores have improved.
Can some one help with medication list format?
if a doctor transcribes a medication as Actose 45 mg q.d do you transcribe it as Actose 45 mg daily?
I just bought a pair of Able Planet (Lynx) NC Headphones I'll give you a great deal on! SM
I did a ton of research and found that many preferred these headphones over the Bose. They were actually more expensive. I paid over $300.00 for these! The only reason I purchased these was because I could charge them on my Dell account. They really are awesome. I can't even hear myself type when I turn on the NC feature. They are comfortable, but after 18 years as an MT, I've just gotten used to the stethoscope style or earbuds.

If you'd like to contact me, I'll give you an offer you can't refuse!
Medication can help you get past the things you can't accept
in this life. You need to seek help.

People have to let go of what bothers them at some point. Carrying around that baggage with you isn't healthy for you.

I didn't bring up anything about my future -- someone else always does because they are so fixated and obsessed. Now that's the biggest funny of all. HAHAHA

Do you take over the counter medication or from a physician. Which seems to work well.
Rewrite song: I forgot my medication..

I can't find my medication

Cause I try.. and I try..but I'm high!

I can't get no..I can't get no..

When I'm tripping around stage

And I'm shakin' it at the Superbowl

And they're chanting I am way too old

That I've lost all my sensation

I look like morgue refrigeration

I can't sing, no, oh no no no

Flat, flat, flat...that's singin' flat

I can't find the right direction (off stage)

I can't get no resurrection....


I wish I could be on disability for something mental that is controlled with medication.

I'm just sorry I'm paying for people to stay home and not work while my husband and I have to work. It's bad enough that this man doesn't help you around the house, but he's sucking off the government (us taxpayers) while we support him. He can't do ANYTHING? Whatever...

Man, what a country.

I thought Neurontin was a pain medication
I'm a little confused by your post.
uh, I don't type a medication that is spelled wrong
Need help with migraine medication--No one responded on drug board

S/L afsurg, atsurg, nafsurg, natsurg--migraine med

No response on drug forum.


If government is involved, it will be as screwed up as the Medicare medication program.
Heaven save us from all these wanna be kings that sit on top of the hill.
Ridiculous. It's not a medication or a procedure she's questioning. This is a moral issue.
She is way out of line to question transcribing that. You're comparing apples to oranges.
if you live among trashy people, low income people, people w/o goals or direction,
content to just get by, you by default become a part of a group. "people" have decided to group trailer people as trash. that is because there are enough people in that group to earn the title and even if you aren't trash, you are categorized by others. did i think i was trash in lower class neighborhood surrounded by people who drank and fought all weekend? no but i knew i wasn't staying and did not try to pretend that all the fools in the neighborhood were just nice folks who ended up where they were because high horse snobs deemed their neighborhood low class. people for the most part live exactly where they belong because they don't want to educate themselves, they don't mind "trash" around them and they don't want to be bothered trying just a bit hard to extract themselves from that world. they justify everything to themselves i guess saying everyone who doesn't like their lifestyle is a snob and the comedians (Jeff Foxworthy/Chris Rock, etc) who make fun of them are just ill-informed.

As for me, I fought hard to get out and don't even want to look back. It amazes me people stay for generations.
No, she didnt but so what if she did?
She was self supporting.  She didnt take anything from anyone or go on the system. 
i didnt see that.
what was the report?
How do you know that she didnt get ....
the newest edition out used??? I agree with it being worthless after a while but you can get used books that are the newest editions.
She didnt say they

were paying production. Probably an hourly rate position. Wipe off the drool. they ain't no fool.



That didnt work out right! Sorry.. NM
Didnt Seem Rude
You didnt seem rude to me at all. You adressed exactly what I was looking to get more info about. Should I even invest in the training, and if so what was the best way to go? Was MT even something I should get into? Sounds like more bang than I want to get tied up in so I appreciate your reply! Thanks!!
DH now knows reality of my job, didnt at first.
Why didnt your ancestors stay?
Why didnt your ancestors stay wherever they came from?  What a horrible statement.  We are all descendant from another country, unless we are American Indian.  I know two doctors who live here and do help in their home countries.  One from South Africa, the other from Mexico.  One goes back each year to hold clinics where they operate on children. 
Nixon didnt declare war
Lyndon Johnson stepped up the fighting in Vietnam, we were there back in the 1960's.  Pressure was put on Nixon from the courageous and so right protestors to end our participation in a wrong war a war we were in because we didnt want the South Vietnamese to become communist, which happened anyway.  The protests at Kent State were peaceful except some students started throwing rocks at inexperienced guardsmen.  The guardsmen were called before the protest to keep calm on campus, which is something that should never be done and was never done before.  You do not turn military against student protestors.  You do not use military to guard Americans, that is what police are for.  Only during Martial Law can you have military take over American streets.  We have a right to protest.  When the students saw the guardsmen, some threw rocks.  The guardsmen then shot their guns.  Trust me, this is how it went.  It is burned into my psyche.
