Medical Transcriptionist was asked...May 17, 2018

Would I be willing to rotate working weekends?

2 Answers

Yes, I would do so. However, once hired they demanded I make another 1000 mile round trip to get work equipment. Because I could not do this, they withdrew their offer. Deceptive and/or incompetent management who cannot or will not think "out of the box." I wasted 2 months and $1000.00 dollars of my meager savings just to be misused and deceived. Less

I might add this employer attempted to force-vaccinate me as employers around the country are now doing in ever increasing numbers, even though objective studies not financed by drug companies show little to no benefit from the flu vaccine and a significant risk of Guillain-Barre syndrome in adults. Before anyone tries to use the canard that I'm not educated enough to understand vaccination, tell that to the hundreds if not thousands of RN's nationwide who are refusing flu vaccine and being fired for it. They've seen the effects and want no part of it. Less

The statement was they wanted 99%-100% accuracy. One of our girls asked what if you don't achieve that right away, would you be dismissed.

1 Answers

They would coach you. Then the same one of our girls asked if you still were up to 99%, they said they would dismiss you. However, I recently had surgery and asked for my hospitalization reports. The two that I received typed by Nuance had nonsensical sentences in both of them, and I am hearing the same from friends of mine who are trying to code their reports. They may not leave blanks, but there are sentences that don't make sense. Less


Do you have pathology experience?

1 Answers

No, I have done many specialties, but pathology was not one of them. Very eager to learn - they gave me a shot! Less
