location: worldwide (red flag!)

In Reply to: Sounds very questionable to me. - Zville MT

compensation: $50 (red flag!), is it per page, per hour, per day... as i understand it, craig's list is to sell items to local parties. It is not where i would look for, or respond to a job from.

Live in Oregon and I am cheap, cheap compared to others in the area.

That would have been the first red flag! LOL
Obviously, the MTSO has had problems in the past then.
LA Location
Gray is in south LA between Houma and Thibodaux, south east, I think, from where you are. About 1 hour and 15 minutes SW of NOLA.

One red flag...
...to me was the benefit package described in the ad. Despite saying that they are "the new kid on the block", the benefits are those seen with (or even better than those of) large, established companies. Most new small companies cannot float such benefit packages unless:

a. They are a unit of or affiliated with another larger company of some sort - which we would certainly want to know.

b. They are a company that has reorganized and managed to hang onto their benefit package - which we would again want to know.

One ad is titled "A New Beginning", suggesting possibility "b" above. If so, it is very important to know which "old" company is being reincarnated as "Jax".

And, I hate to say it as it seems somewhat superficial, but even the name of the company raised my eyebrows.

Even if Jax proves legit, though, it serves now as a perfect example of how easy it would be to harvest resumes from people.

That is what it boils down to. Here in the Pacific Northwest (of course it depends on how much experience you have), experienced hospital MTs are paid at an average rate of $15-23 per hour.
It is in Phoenix AZ.  Just wanted to know if anyone on here would have any info on this company.  I am applying.
Yep, I would flag it

without a couple of sources of confirmation.  Docs cannot spell, though they think they can.  Sometimes I will find several Google entries with the same spelling, but they still turn out to be the wrong spelling. 

This is my favorite med site:


If you can hear any 3 consecutive letters (like the LOL or the ROL) you can search and it will give you anything that contains this combination,  generics on the right, brands on the left.  If you click on the name it will take you to another screen for dosages (sometimes.) 

That's a definite red flag...

By all means, if you can, find a vet that'll get you in as an emergency.  If your regular vet doesn't see patients on an emergency basis, honestly, it's time to find another one.  I have 3 cats & 2 birds, & if I had a vet who wouldn't take one of my "kids" STAT, I'd be going somewhere else. 

In the meantime, please give her ((((BIG HUGS)))) & lots of kisses from me & my "kids".  BTW, what's her name?  I'll keep her in my prayers  

Is this right? (location of JR in name): DOE, JOHN JR ? Thanks for your help. NM

It is a red flag to me, seeing one co. over and over. Would not inquire..nm
you cannot even erect a USA FLAG....sm

saw a story last year when a Boynton Beach homeowner with a condo association put up the American Flag.....and did battle with the association and HE lost the battle.....and either had to move or never put up an American flag....on his property in the ground with a pole.

I flag. I don't correct this because as the others said, you don't know. nm
Always flag/blank something so odd it is likely
I would still flag it - he said twice daily not

it really depends on your location

I live in a cheap midwestern state with traditionally lower hourly wages, and I work for a county hospital, so compare accordingly. 

I make 15.00/hr base pay plus 1.50/hr shift differential plus between 1.50 and 2.00/hr production bonus. 

If AHDI had a CMT flag, I would definitely
Flag it. Verbatim or not, you do not
knowingly put in wrong info.
That was her - raised a red flag for me too - I wish I had said something at the time nm

Probably is Gemzar, but I would flag rather than assume. NM
Ad says location Nova Scotia nm
I smell a rat. If it were me, I would consider this the first red flag and be on the lookout

home office location-sm

I will take another look at another location for my office but I do like it where it is because it is handy for me (when there is no visitors), convenient to the kitchen, bathroom (I only have1), and I can start the evening meal and still work, etc.  Why can't anything be easy?

I would definitely flag it and if you are able to put a note somewhere just ask the doctor to sm
review/revise the area in question. 
curious about location of NEMT
looked on their website and it hasn't been updated since 2003. i may have worked for NEMT years ago. are they in massachusetts?
Location does make a difference . . .
I should have mentioned that I am in a large metro area. But I do still think you deserve a raise ;).

Seriously, I just think that is awfully low for ANY area. I don't know how many lines you average per page, though.

Now, I have seen radiology paying in the range of $1-2 per page, but this was still not what the office was paying, but was what the Transcriptionist was being paid by the middle man.

One other thought that may seem to contradict my previous thoughts . . . you do not want to price yourself out of a job or have too much of an increase too quickly, depending, of course, on how important this account is to your livelihood, and any raise at all is better than none.

Good luck!
I took it more as a flag because it's uncommon in dictation..
not that there was a debate of whether to transcribe it or not. I personally haven't ever had a dictator mention praying with the patient, although, I have had one of my personal physicians mention that he hadnt seen me in church lately :D
its location (it's is short for it is) and handwritten n/m
if any doubt (at all!) leave it out (flag it).
think it might be diltiazem. Gonna flag it to be safe. Tx. NM
When your 5-y/o knows the location of his popliteal and antecubital fossae (nm)
Price and location of having a website made?
I have been a MT for 12 years, and I now have 2 Independant Contractors working under me. I believe I am reaching the point of needing a website, and I would really like a way for my clients to upload their .dss voice files through my website. Anyone know where I should begin looking or what I can expect to pay?
Call the news station in your location
who handles this sort of complaint. Once you contact the media, you will be paid immediately. Good Luck!!!
It varies as to location and what docs currently pay in your area. nm
Free long distance. What is the location?nm
need online file storage location

We transfer our files back and forth via email and very frequently the clinic is "missing completed" files which we have sent them.  This is beginning to take up way too much time to look up and resend.

I need an online storage site where us transcriptionists (3) can send a copy of finished work and also the clinic receptionsist can also access to look for "missing files."  (Preferably free or low priced) Any ideas??  Thanks.  Free

depends on location, I know someone who lost a local account - sm
in Woodbridge, VA, was charging .12 a line (60 character line), got underbid and lost it after having had it for years.  Now in order to get more but look less, she bids at .10 a line but a 50 char. line....comes out to .13 if a 65 cpl.   You can't get much over .10 around here on your own which really stinks, or do some fancy accounting which in this case works.
..in an easy to find location like your Desktop or a certain file. nm
That only tells the grammar checker to flag spaces. Word does not auto space.
i think it varies from company to company and/or location

Verbatim = verbatim......flag it...NM
