Mixed Latin and English abbreviations "confuse" the health care worker. Doesn't compute. Next year it will change. Maybe too we can spell things phonetically for the healh care worker who is confused. The new spellings can bring in new revenue to AAMT.

Doesn't matter, IF you are not paid an hourly wage, i.e. a set amount no matter - sm
how much or how little you type, say $12.00/hour, you do not get OT. As someone mentioned here, certain jobs are exempt, and as most of us are paid a flat rate of .08 cpl or .09 or .10, whatever it is, that is all we get regardless of how many hours under or over 40 hours we go. If you want OT then go get an in-house job or get a job doing something else.
It was not the subject matter, it was the delivery.
OPEN YOUR MIND is rude. I used to think like you did until I saw firsthand what all the closed businesses did to our town. It's not my way or the highway. I do see your point. It's a no-win situation. Walmart provides low paying jobs with lousy benefits where those workers used to have decent jobs with benefits elsewhere.
well it doesn't matter
that's for sure....
It doesn't matter if he did it before; he WILL do it again. Get out now.
The man who hit me hadn't done it before, but once he started, it didn't stop. Several police officers at various times all told me the same thing--it doesn't stop, it progressively gets worse. I chose not to listen. Get out while you can. Beg, borrow or steal the money for a lawyer. Call a women's shelter; they can give you advice on legal help. Just do it now.
It doesn't matter
It doesn't matter HOW time consuming running spell check is - it's something you do, or should do, to ensure an accurate work product period.
doesn't matter-
Professionalism is a state of mind. If you bring pride and caring to your work thats profressionalism. Doesn't matter what you do. I've met very unprofessional lawyers and very professional, honest plumbers who bring dignity and perfection to their work. Do the best job you can do no matter what you do and don't let any elistist snob tell you otherwise.
doesn't matter to me either what U think..LOL
just seeing a political lucid moment from you blew me away, for a split second           
welcome.. doesn't matter what you do around here - sm
someone will jump on you for it.  LOL 
That doesn't even matter if the DOJ only requires your
SSN and address.  The criminal background checks aren't coming from the DOJ.  The MTSO or national is requiring a criminal background check.  That's their prerogative.  You either submit to the criminal background check, or you look for work elsewhere.  It's that simple.  There is NO law requiring background checks.  It's not a violation of privacy because you agree to it before it's done.  As the other poster said, what's wrong with it if you've got nothing to hide?  Many times, you're getting a computer and access to people's private health records.  I don't want a criminal having access to my medical records.
Agree, it really doesn't matter what anyone else does.
IF you are happy with your line count and paycheck, who cares what anyone else produces........I don't. I am quite happy in my little bubble.
Law doesn't matter if she can't afford to take
him to court to fight it. He can do as he pleases and the burden will be on her to go after him and make him adhere to the court order.

Been there, done that. It's an expensive, exhaustive process and, in the long run, she will probably lose out if she runs out of money.

It's sad, pathetic, unfair, immoral, but true.
It doesn't matter where you live (sm)

There are bad neighbors anywhere you go.  You can start praying that they'll move, we did that at my place and have good neighbors now.

Be glad there is some room between you though, at least their windows are not 10' away from yours.

not a winner but it doesn't matter -
Thanks for all your efforts - it was fun !
It doesn't really matter to me as long as they do
it right.
You are right - it doesn't matter what reports
get to vent about it -- we done these all the times, not just on Thanksgiving weekend, right ?
Doesn't matter what the company goes to. The
To me, it doesn't matter what anything "think" this job entails, but
what I "know" it all entails. You could be a street sweeper, but if you respect yourself, then you are doing the most important job in the world. I believe I am doing an important work - I sometimes think of the nurses and docs who read my consultations I transcribed and the words that will help them to help treat an ill patient.

I don't care if they label me a data entry clerk (although I've never heard that before), because I know the work we do IS very important.
It doesn't matter to me if you agree with all of my posts or none of them.

Not trying to hurt your feelings or anything, but that's just the way it is.

Doesn't matter, right or wrong, it's been happening.
Evenutally, the only need for US MTs will be for editing and ASR.  If I remember AAMT even changed their name.  Everyone but the MTs are profiting from this.  My salary has decreased so much over the last 5 years it's a joke.  This has been going on for  years already and the reality is, it's just getting worse.  As long as there is money to be made the big guys are going to go where they can get it and laugh all the way to the bank.  
Brand doesn't matter as much as the speed
of the hub.  You want high-speed, I think it is 2.0, though not sure if technology has updated. 
Not to change the subject.. but in Medical Phrase Index, debride doesn't have an accent mark. nm
Sorry about that. It doesn't really matter what the "R" stands for. Please accept my apolog
being catty. Hope you have a good evening.
I doesn't matter. You can transcribe the reports of people you know. sm
You just keep it confidential. There is no need to tell a supervisor or bow out of doing the report. Just don't talk about it, AT ALL.
Doesn't matter....they deduct 25% (or more) from your TOTAL lines - NM
They were going pay me an hourly rate, training pay. It doesn't matter, I just tested for two ot
and I did pretty well.  I should get a couple of offers in the next couple of days, hopefully -- I don't want to be overly confident because if I learned anything out of all this it is don't count your chickens before they hatch and don't put all your eggs in one basket.
So it doesn't matter if you got a 30 minute file and only 3 minutes of it is actually dictation,
Doesn't matter If you haven't contacted former previous supervisor or not; go ahead
and put their contact info down (if you have it), for your reference. It's not necessary to contact your references prior to putting them down on an app--if you left them with a good impression, that should speak for itself and they will give a good reference if they are contacted.
Collision or comp doesn't matter. I called my insurance company
when I was hit by someone. I only had liability but their adjuster made sure I got the best deal out of it. My rates didn't go up either.
Doesn't matter 1 iota if it is a medical report.She probably wouldn't know a good MT if 1 bit
the butt - that was my point.
It they can't type a grammatically correct sentence, it doesn't matter how many degrees they h
That doesn't matter. A quick blood test, NOT 3 hours, would have settled that question.
I wear cotton socks all year, no matter how hot or cold. :) nm
Funny thing I see the same errors repeated for over a year now of training no matter how many times
you correct it. I think you had better get your facts straight HON.
are you the same Laura E who did not even make 12k last year? That doesn't
sound like plenty of work. It sounds like PT and that does not mean that there is enough for FT.
I was misunderstanding that as an interpretation of it but..
I still have to go back to the BOS because, let's face it, that's what 99% of us are supposed to use as our rules, whether one agrees with it or not, and more than likely it is what will be used for QA.
"Though they represent a plural quantity, units of measure are collective singular nouns and take singular verbs." BOS, third edition, page 97. Since the OP wanted to know a QA answer, I think I'd stick with BOS.

Get back together - yes - Skanky? No, that's your interpretation

Funny how we can read the same thing and come up with a different interpretation.

I don't see the message "lie down and take it" but rather, "change is coming". The above idea that we have to change with the times is paramount but sometimes I think there are those who want to stop all change from occurring and that's just not realistic.

However, I think we do agree that there is change in the air and it's up to the individual to find the best way for them to adapt to change and still be of benefit to their employer and self.

money.....but I am an IC and he has all the benefits...health insurance/dental that the company pays for, pension plan, 401k, etc.  Factor all of that in and he makes way more than I do.

Not only did I finally receive the proper training, but the woman on the advisory board hired and mentored me. I also joined the local AAMT and networked. Good luck. I know how frustrating it can be. A community college will have a good program to include medical language, MT courses taught by local MTSOs, business English, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, etc.
While we are on subject, how about 1 and 1/4 cm. Is it 1.025?
off the subject a bit, but sm
if you are now on DQS, did you get paid for that training that took over TWO HOURS of my working time??? I didn't! And my TC said we weren't gonna get paid for it, either!!! That really P'd me off!!!
I am not sure why, but this subject always (sm)
seems to get a debate going. I posted below about homeschooling and wishing I had been homeschooled. I honestly think everyone should at least try it if at all able. It is a great experience!!
Ultimately it is the choice of the girl who made the choice to have sex. For crying out loud, either way she will have to pay for her mistakes. Enough already.
I'm no pro on this subject, but I'm not sure there is
a way to convert it to anything smaller than the MP3 from wav. Are you using an FTP or sending through email? My docs are uploading 90 minute DSS files to an FTP and it only takes a few seconds. The 90 minute file is close to 8 MB, I believe. If you're using email, you might try an FTP server.
Okay, can we all get off this subject
and let it rest for the night? it has been an unconstructive day for everybody on this particular post, except maybe for the ones that learned not to feed the trolls. goodnight everybody. give it a rest already
