original poster of prayer sentence information

Posted By: Ellie on 2008-05-05
In Reply to:

I am the originator of the post on typing a sentence regarding praying with a patient.  I don't care that he did it one way or the other.  My concern was that I did not believe that it should be part of a dictated medical report.  We don't add patient names.  We carefully word sentences so that the patient is not denigrated in the process and patient care not impacted.  This is not relative to patient care, in my opinion.  I have been doing this job a long time and never had anything like that mentioned in a note before now.  Not at hospitals with definite religious affiliations.  Not when typing for a physician and his staff that regularly do it.  So, I asked a question here.  Based on the responses, it will be the last time I do.  Yes, I do "question' everything I haven't typed before by verifying the word, disease, medication, etc.

thats you. the original poster is not you.

My heart goes out to you.  The sexual harrassment i'm going through is not comparable, I couldn't imagine dealing with this if I were a child..  In a way, they are taking something from us, no matter what age, when they cross that border.  I have told someone, so its out.  But my mother is another story. She has been abused emotionally and physically by men.  Like I said above, she is in a horrible state of mind, depends soley on this man.  Thats why removing myself until I figure things out would be best.  I do notice on his side of the family, he is not near his grandchildren, or great grandchildren, and over they years, they have expressed their hate for him.  I just don't understand at his age how he could still be doing something like this and not learn from it, having lost his own family? He is a master at getting people to like him...my family would raise eyebrows at me if I brought this up.  But like I said, I told someone, she understands, and it has leaked around. Actually talking to my mother, she would do something to hurt herself.  She wouldnt be able to handle it.
It might not help the original poster (sm)
but if you think you need to have a hysterectomy, find a physician who can do it laparoscopically. I had that done in December 2003 and I was back on my feet within a week. I didn't go back to work (outside the home at that time) for three weeks, but I had to convince the doctor to give me that much time because he knew how fast the recovery was from a laparoscopic hyst.
To the original poster.....

You said "She was voted off because she sang a Christian song."  That is absolutely not true.  She was voted off because this week when she sang country she did not get enough votes.  If you want to get really technical with it, "She was voted off because she sang a country song." 


This had absolutely nothing to do with religion.  The week that she sang a christian song she did not get anywhere near being in the bottom three.  She was in a singing competition in which she would get a record deal if she won.  I don't think God would mind if she sang a song "out of her element" in this competition.  She did not commit any sin.  You sing what you have to, to get through the competition, if you win you chose whatever genre of music you want to pursue for a record deal.  Ruben did.  He sang all types of music during the competition and won it, then he made a religious album.


Don't come blasting on something you know nothing about.  You said you weren't an Idol fan, so why do you even care and why did you have to make it out to be something it wasn't?


By the way, I am a Christian.  I just hate it when people try to put religion in everything and twist things to make them look evil!!!!

not the original poster, but i will tell you what sm
a company did to me. we supposedly got paid for spaces. we were "required" to put two spaces after a period, etc. I kept struggling to get my line counts up to par thinking why is it taking me so long to reach my norm. finally one day i decided to compare line counts. what i came up with was higher than theirs. so i figured line count without spaces and was too low. i took the difference of with spaces and without spaces and divided spaces in half and bam, hit their line count exactly. so even they we were required to type two spaces after periods, etc., we only got paid for one. their system would take our spaces and divide those in half before giving us the line counts. i never typed another document for them after i figured this out and didn't even waste my time explaining why. i felt i had the right to do as i choose since i was flat out lied to. nothing is worse than dishonesty. no that company was not Transtech for those wondering. to me, the #1 priority is honesty, decent program, then good communication, decent pay, pay on time and as agreed upon, decent work and steady workload.
I am not the original poster
No, I did not complain that I was being asked to do work I was told I wouldn't have. I responded to a person who stated they did. My response was that many MTs are no longer being matched up with the work they are most proficient at, then clueless companies act surprised when it slows down efficiency or loses employees. That is fact I have observed, of late over and over again. Please go back and read the thread.

I won't even go into being "thankful" that a person is in a two-way contract that should benefit both parties, the employer and the employee, and honor about keeping to the agreement made.

Regardless, I'm done with this mad hatter's tea party conversation.

for the original poster or anyone

I would like to leave a web site about Daniel G. Amen, M.D.  It lists several books about how the brain works and techniques for ADD, depression, etc.

The original poster said
"they pushed me out of the room" She is talking about her minor child and she went out because they pushed? You are talking 11 years old versus a 17 year old, believe she said, still a minor.
If you'd look you would see that I AM the original poster....nm
You make me laugh, stating that I am trying to intimidate you? Please, you were the one who said I had incorrect information and then called it "crap" and now you call me "childish and churlish" when everyone who reads on this board can see that you seem to think you are an authority on ANY subject and will always make a debate or judgement on everything that is said.

By the way, those "switches" you keep referring to reside in the boxes at each zone.

Also, I DID live in a rural area when this whole situation came up for me and we could NOT get DSL until we had fiberoptic AND the equipment in the box was changed. As far as speed goes, when we lived in the RURAL area, AFTER the FO and equipment installation, we could get 6.0...the highest speed available. I live in town now, not even a mild from the "central office" and can only get 3.0. Distance is not as much of a factor as you think....fiberoptic and equipment in the box is the main factor.

As my mom always told me, book learning isn't always as good as good old-fashioned WORK experience. Have you worked out in the field, installing, laying fiber, actually DOING what you seem to have learned so much from being lectured by engineers? If I remember right, most of these engineers sit in an office and direct traffic, never actually driving anything.

Since I am probably talking to someone who will NEVER change their mind even when presented with factual arguments, I'm truly going to stop now. You can have the run of the board back and see how many more people you can call names and intimate that no one understands anything besides you. LOL :-)

For everyone else reading this, I truly only intended to help when I first posted and I truly know from first-hand experience what I'm talking about, not just because my husband did this exact job for so long, but because I read, I research, and I observe. Good luck to all of you and maybe this stimulus money that is supposed to go for "taking broadband to the suburban and rural areas" will be well spent.
The original poster got me, and that's what counted!
Sorry to disappoint, but she got my point!
isn't this the perfect example of what the original poster

but not in the situation of the original poster...sm
she sounded like somebody trying to get the quick fix of a new car. She's not an MTSO driving a high end vehicle and certainly had not done a financial analysis of the situation.  I agree, there are a few instances when you need to rent short term because of situations but bottom line is long term, renting or leasing can't be a better choice. Someone is making money off of you. The majority of people are working paycheck to paycheck and need to get past that illusion of "free money" from a credit card and leasing a nicer car than they can afford. I don't pretend to be a financial expert but most of the time spending money is about emotions than dollars. Case in point, leasing a nice car so you "look" better off. BTW, Suze Orman's books are the best I've seen yet...and I've read A LOT of financial advice.
I agree. I am the original poster
working as an IC for a service.
R U the original poster? confused...sm

IF you are the original poster, many feel badly for you because of YOUR words YOU typed....."my husband refuses to let me go back to dental hygiene school" or words to that affect.


Seems to me you lost control over your life...........


Hi Dianna and everyone- I'm the original poster for
rebound headaches. I'm so glad I posted this question - I have received some excellent information. We're just a bunch of smarties, eh?
I love it.
Yep, it means original poster. Sometimes
it can mean other poster, but usually original poster of a certain thread.
I have to agree with original poster though
I have gotten blanket emails from someone in my company recently who did not work with me or any of the rest on my account until the time of the email. She sent out an email addressing everyone when in reality there were a few of us that did what we were told and felt very offended to read it addressed and worded for all of us. I used to be a store manager in retail for years. One thing that I learned was if not everyone was doing wrong you should not address everyone as it makes makes those who did no wrong feel bad and can lead to decreased morale. You should address only those doing wrong. I have always agreed with this. I have read it in management books and been taught it. I have seen the negative effect of it when I did it in a store meeting. From then on I always addressed people individually.
Exactly! And now the original poster is arguing
with us about working Christmas when that was her supposed original dilemma - we can't win, eh? Unreal. And now that I feel like mentioning it - not having a contract is nothing to brag about - there are laws for patient's privacy issues, etc., and our industry is going to be challenged by US citizens who, while finding out about offshoring Indians transcribing our work, are also not thrilled at the idea of their next-door neighbor sitting in their living room with jammies on, transcribing their medical records without any legal contracts - scary stuff. Not professional to say the least. Of course, the original poster will now argue that she is a 100% pro - though she didn't know what her rights were when it came to working holidays...
To quote the original poster
.
Question was for original poster.
My question was for the person who posted the original message regarding ownership of the software. In my opinion, that person was either SS herself or the person who calls himself Leo and claims to be her husband.
I'm original poster -forgot to mention that I do.
I quit twice in my life, the last time for about 3 years.  Both times just made up my mind to - and cold turkey.  Just can't seem to do it now. 
This post was soo sweet. I am not the original poster, but was being

nosey and thought your post was so sweet.


I have applied to 2 companies - Medscribe and an MTSO. I am not nervous leaving MQ.  Wow.  Looks like a ton of people are leaving.  I wonder if that means just great news for their Indian MTs....hmmm


Please note I'm the original poster and not azmt below. (sm)
I would never not proof as my original post said.

azmt there are many different names you can go by here and I'd rather not be confused with you.
No, I am not the original poster, smarty-pants!

Is it common for doc's to change or add more information to their patient's original report af

prior?  I am an IC for four doctors, and they are constantly adding or deleting information from their already signed reports.  Is this the norm?  They keep telling me it is because of insurance issues. I was just curious.  Thank you. 


I believe the original poster is the one doing the scoring, and she is SHOCKED at how low the score
is for the MT, and she doesn't even know what to say to the MT under comments. I can certainly relate - lately, its abysmal in my company.  How, oh how, do these MTs get hired?  To me, that is the BIGGEST mystery. 
Sorry, last post directed to Trixi, not original poster. nm
:)
I am not the original poster, but would love to know how to do this. what version of word are you u
/
I was joking, cause the poster I responded to made a HUGE typo in a tiny sentence!
would like to believe, MYSELF included! Lighten up!
we are not talking about a house in the assoc. The original poster lives in a regular home.
So they cannot tell someone else what color to paint their house.


I was going to say unless you were the original 3 brave souls named on the original suit.
I still had heard lately that no one else, not one person, had been allowed to join in, so you must be in a separate class??

Prayer for 4-year-old boy

I just did pray for him.  Please let us know how he is doing, so we can see the result of our prayers.


Thanks.


Lynn


Nice. Will say a prayer for you both.
and Happy Easter to you and yours. You have your hearts in the Right Place. We have lots to be thankful for.
I do not think her issue was with prayer...

I believe what she meant was that she had never heard this dictated before; therefore, she was questioning it.  She was not questioning whether it is okay for a physician to pray with his patient. 


Wow---chill out everyone! OP said nothing against prayer or
it was allowed in a report.

It's no different than asking if typing someone "makes her money on her back" is appropriate. It's not the subject itself---it's whether or not it should be in a medical document because it's not medical. My answer is yes...if the doc dictates it then you put it in. There have been plenty of things over the years I would've left it, but you just put it in.

There's no reason for these attacks on her though...she didn't say anything was wrong with prayer. She didn't say she didn't tolerate anything Christian.

Everyone is WAY, WAY to defensive on this. She could very well be Christian herself, but you don't know that because she didn't say one way or another and didn't say it was good or bad.
Prayer mention
Why is it that no one has any questions as to the mention of abortions or homosexuality or selling sex in any way, but we question a mention of prayer. Christians are supposed to be tolerant of freedom of speech but we no longer have it it seems. We are supposed to accept differences in cultures but we are not allowed to pray in school openly, but homosexuals for example can kiss and hold hands in schools. I am a very tolerant person I just wonder why things like prayer are not tolerated but rather some kind of violation or "no way" type of thought to others who may not believe. And before anyone blasts me I have friends that are very dear to my heart that are gay both female and male, and have atheist and pagan friends. I believe that we all have the right to believe the way we do and express ourselves freely. I am only sorry that we are looking for "rules" to avoid the mention of prayer.
How do you know they said a Christian prayer?
It is very possible that both the patient and physician are Muslims. You are only assuming it was Christian prayer and getting your panties in a knot based on that assumption.
Christian prayer
I know because I know the docs personally. I am a paramedic and have also worked as a nurse in several docs offices.
I see nothing wrong with prayer...sm
If a doctor prays with a patient then I think that is fine if the patient is okay with it. As MTs it is our job to type whatever they dictate. So if they dictate about praying we should just type it and not worry about it. It is a job.
Why shouldn't it be part of the report. It is the doctor's report for that patient. If the patient is okay with it it is not for you as the MT, in my opinion, to decide hey this doesn't belong here. The doctor wouldn't have dictated it if he didn't want it in the report. And I believe when a doctor dictates something it is your job to type it. Don't ask questions, just type, unless it is something you have been trained not to type.
I say even if you don't agree with it and if you don't that by all means is your right as an American citizen. But if he wants it in the report just put it and be done with it.
A Prayer for the New Year

As the dawn breaks on a new year, let us give thanks for all we hold dear: our health, our family and our friends. 


Let us release our grudges, our anger and our pains, for these are nothing but binding chains. Let us live each day in the most loving ways, the God-conscious way. Let us serve all who are in need, regardless of race, color or creed.


Let us keep God of our own understanding in our hearts and to chant Godís name each day. Let us lead the world from darkness to light, from falsehood to truth and from wrong to right.


Let us remember that we are all one, embracing all, discriminating against none.


May your year be filled with peace, prosperity and love. May God's blessings shower upon you and bestow upon each of you a bright, healthy and peaceful new year.


URGENT PRAYER REQUEST

Please pray for our little dog, Fluffy,  who is in the hospital right now and on oxygen.  We just came from there and he is having a lot of difficulty breathing.  He has swelling on his spinal cord and they are unable to do additional testing to find out why because of this complication.  Please everyone say a prayer for him that his breathing stabilizes and they can find out what the problem is. 


Thank you and God Bless


Thanks to everyone for the advice and offer of prayer - sm
How ironic is this. S works in a mental health unit but they don't see children. The psychologist that Tater does see works with children but I think her 20+ years of experience is missing this particular type of behavior counseling.

Still hoping I will hear back from this doctor I wrote to last night to see if she has any advice to offer too.
Danny's on my prayer list
I'm so sorry to hear this happened.  How tragic.  I will keep Danny and his family and you -his good friend - in my prayers.  Best of wishes to all of you. 
I am glad you are doing well. Prayer does work

Mention of prayer in reports
I have never run across this problem in the past.  I have a provider stating "we took a few minutes to lift everything up in prayer."  My gut says NO WAY.  But, I can't find a rule to support that.  HELP!
