wrong....I've been there, believe me the stockpile of liquor is just as great as in the US

there are just no bars, and there are underground church services all over.  You learn to make your own wine.   Company I worked for had ministers and priests (called them teachers on their work permit), with full active services in a special house.  Believe me its nothing like you all think it is there.   Nothing.

As you can already see, you've come to the wrong board! By using the word professional, you've
excluded about 99% of the population of "whatever" it is that hangs on these boards. Certainly not professional for sure! But you sure are doing a good thing for someone! Its the thought that counts. Sorry you met the dregs right at the start.
It is a GREAT company and great deal! I've had
Vonage about 6 months now and I love it. The only mistake I made was trying to keep my original phone # - I wouldn't recommend that. You have a temp # for a while, and the other provider can fight for the old #, etc. Go to vonage. com. They have new features all the time! There is even a new soft phone that is a phone on your screen. You don't need a real phone when working - just headset. It has 800 #s you can have very inexpensively - great voice mail. You get emails when you have new messages, etc. I only wish I had used them a year ago! Nothing but good things to say, and I complain about everything!
tolerance to liquor

Actually, I rarely drink now. And when I do, I'll nurse one drink over a couple of hours. --- What cured me from drinking too much was the party I went to in the summer of 1991. I threw back twelve 8 oz glasses of punch-flavored moonshine over the course of about six hours. Ever drink moonshine? It's got quite a kick. I didn't mind my head in the toilet, but it was feeling like somebody had taken a baseball bat to my skull that sort of got the message across. Since then, I tend to shy away from liquor.

>>Apparently you have never worked in a hospital, because believe me, there is plenty of drinking going on there - including the doctors.

To my knowledge, there was never any drinking at any of the hospitals I work at, on Long Island. There were three or four of them. Don't remember.

>>>Don't flame me - I didn't say ALL of them - but I worked in hospitals for years and surgeons under the influence did their operations, radiologists read their x-rays, all under the influence. Then, there is the drug abuse - another story.

Define "under the influence." Some might feel a glass of wine puts you "under the influence." I certainly don't. Personally, I don't know how people can even drink that stuff (wine). Bleh!!!! What a horrible taste. --- My husband likes wine on occasion, and I wouldn't know if he had a glass of wine or not, unless I saw him drink it. There's no change in him. And believe, I would definitely see the difference, if there was one.

And as far as performing surgery after the consumption of liquor ... don't even COMPARE performing surgery to MT.

Drug abuse? Well, I can't comment on that, but I know for a fact that you should try to transcribe a medical report after smoking "that stuff." You'll end up with something really strange.

Nothing wrong with it. He's a great vet. On call sm
24/7--unlike most of the vets in my area. I'd rather give him the money anyway.
You certainly do not have to. Then again, if you've done nothing wrong,
it can establish the facts of the matter. You want to be sure the other driver isn't trying to escape liability or that comparative negligence isn't a factor in insurance payment. If it was me, I would do the recorded statement because it can only help your situation. Being rear ended isn't automatically the other driver's fault. I rear ended somebody, but it was her fault for not using her turn signal and gearing down instead of using her brakes. She had to pay me because her comparative negligence portion was figured at 85% versus my 15% for not slowing sooner.

FWIW, I've been transcribing for an insurance company for about 10 years now. I transcribe recorded statements and reports. You should do the recorded statement because it will only help your situation.
Now..I've been know to be wrong...but...
isn't it metacarpophalangeal joint? I can't seem to reference metacarpal-phalangeal joint in any of my references.

And, according to Stedman's Orthopaedic Words, there IS a carpophalangeal joint.

You need to brush up on your adjoining terms before you go correcting a physician.

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

PA dictates patient drinks "a gallon" of liquor a day.
I hear people drinking a pint or 1/5 a day, but a GALLON.  The guy is only 45. 
My family's not into hard liquor. Beer on one side and wine on the other.
Ugh. I only "like" to drink alcohol maybe once a month.
First, cyber hugs. Next, you've done nothing wrong
There is no reason for you to feel humiliated. He is the problem, not you. You know your family best and must choose the path that seems right to you. However, please consider making it clear to your family, your mother in particular, what has been going on and why you have been forced to make this choice. He has no right to make you miserable. Is there a trusted family member in whom you could confide? Having an ally in your family would likely lighten the burden. In any event, please strengthen your relationships outside your family so that you have caring friends and associates to count on if there is no one in your family to turn to.
You've got some aspects wrong, Curious.
No one is trying to screw anyone out of lines. It's just not our job to make sure YOU have your work done, period. We're doing what we are told and allowed to do, flat out.

It isn't my responsibility whatsoever to make sure lines are spread out evenly, to make sure anyone else has lines, etc. My job is to get the work done with as much quality and speed as possible. My responsibility is to ensure my household is stable and to keep a good, solid relationship with my employer.

Your "poor me, I'm a victim" mentality does you in.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought I've seen quite a few names, first and last, of people
mgmt on this board in the past, in similar situations, which is why I felt I could post this question. I certainly don't think I was not being tactful to the people I asked about, as I complimented them and enjoyed working with them. I wouldn't mind my name being on this board if someone said something nice about me. 
You've all been a great help, as always... Thank you
Looks great...I've never been there though.
Maybe I can check it out :-)
Thanks to all of your responses. You've been a great help!

That's bull; I've seen great MTs take a hit
Particularly with dishonest MTSO, which is why I don't work for him anymore!
You've got great production! :) nm
Great idea...I've often thought of doing some...

thing similar.  After all, AAMT was started by individuals with an idea.  Unfortunately the original, most likely that *good* idea has been long lost.

So, form a new organization.  Set up testing.  Issue a credential.  Actually represent the American MT.  What a concept. 

Just a thank you to all who answered this post. You've been a great help!!

wrong, wrong, wrong. work is being outsourced because of $. period. not because of unqualified MTs
I've tried Vivarin and the 1st two days it worked great
But after that they put me to sleep like anesthesia. Go figure.

I typed a report on the wrong patient as the doc keyed in the wrong info, SM
He later said the correct patient's name and I SWEAR to this day I made the changes but somehow the report when through without the correct patient and changes made. I still remember that incident.
Fantasia wrong??? Haven't seen the OP's CD, couldn't have been too wrong.
I use EXText with my current job and I've used at a couple of other jobs I've had. I've ne

used DocQscribe, but I have used Meditech, Cerner, Vianeta, the Precyse platform (I can't remember the name), Dolbey, and  Lanier platform I think was called Cequence (?). 

Out of all the different platforms I have typed on, I have liked EXText the best.  In my opinion, it's very user friendly, easy to learn, and I really like ESP which is the built in abbreviation expander.  Plus it is very easy to create your own normals which I love.  My fingers literally never leave the keyboard because there are macro keys for everything.  You can use your mouse if you prefer or learn the function macros.  I love it.  I think I'm more productive on EXText than with any other platform.

It's about morality - not censorship! Right is right and wrong is wrong!
Saw him on CMT show with John Fogarty. Great, great singer with a neat personality and drop dead
gorgeous without seeming to know it. 
Great post. I swear by both Advantage and Frontline Plus-- both work great! - sm
I don't know about "natural" approaches for the house. I have always used flea bombs in the past before the miracle of Advantage and Frontline changed my life. Have not had a flea problem at all since I began using those products about 10 years ago, dose all the dogs religiously once a month with the Frontline Plus except in Dec.-Feb. to save a few bucks and because the ground is generally frozen by then and no fleas are scurring about. -- Hope you get flea free soon.
As far as it being wrong, well who defines right and wrong? On the
other hand, what if he were doing the same thing? How would you feel? I think that should answer your question.
You SUPPOSE it was wrong! It was way wrong.
Thanks to all. Got some great feedback and ecouragement. This board is great.
My rant passed, ate a late lunch, now back to the trenches.
GREAT GREAT SHOW! I still think Ellen Pompeo
should have gotten the Emmy/Golden Globe whatever it was for the show. I like Sandra Ho, her character just needs more depth... Next week looks AWESOME!! Maybe there is still a chance for McDreamy!! First season DVD coming out with deleted scenes! Can't wait to get it & watch it!!
Sounds like he will do great then. Again, best wishes for great success!
That's great Patti. Thanks. Have a great time at the beach.
You should feel great as a transcriptionist if they think your work is that great!!!
It is not your fault they approached you. I think it would be a different storey if you were the one searching for the job to take away from a company. They obviously want to get rid of the company and if you didn't take the job they would probably ask someone else. You should enjoy the better position and not feel guilty!!
Great post -great job of wording your answer! (sm)
Original poster - I completely agree with this answer, especially the part about finding yourself and using all that you have learned intellectually and connecting that to something that you will also enjoy with your heart!! You have so many wonderful options for your future - much more than many of us.

If you're supposed to be paid a certain $/line, that's what you should be getting no matter how they do billing unless of course it's specified in YOUR contract with THEM.

BTW, I've never caught a company cheating me ever.
I've used it. It's the worst piece of crap I've ever seen.
seriously. I wouldn't wish them on my worst enemy, or their Vianeta program. Awful, just awful.
Wait until you've been there six months and if you've improved

I've seen the same every place I've done acute care, and
pointing out dangerous or repeated errors (often in normals for goodness sakes!) never got the result I expected. When I would press the issue, supervisors said if the dictators didn't complain, then the mistakes must not matter!

It didn't matter if the MT changed what had been a cardiac med in the beginning of the report to an antifungal by the end - I kid you NOT! One poor girl used facial for fascial and fascial for facial!

One thing I do to get around this, is to create a macro and then link the ShortHand command to the macro. It works for me, but I do the same five clients every day and only have about 20 or 30 macros/Shorthand commands that work like this. This may not work well for you if you have lots of formats and hundreds of docs.

I can tell what's a stutter, what's another word, what's just an "uh." Years of experience will get you through a lot.

I've worn contacts for 30 years. I've had both
hard and soft.  My vision is much better with the soft ones than they were with the hard ones.   When I first started trying contacts soft ones were still new and they couldn't get me to 20/20, so I went to hard.  Hard were okay until my eyes started changing shape and then I could no longer wear hard ones.  The soft should give you better vision as they conform more to the shape of your eye.
