A community of 30,000 US Transcriptionist serving Medical Transcription Industry
Okay, I have been having a total burnout this week and don't know where to turn. After doing MT work for 15 years with the last couple of years being forced to do VR with awful docs and the reports being such a mess that I could do them faster starting from scratch, I just want to be done! They are getting so bad that the other day I made about $4.00 to $6.00 an hour and worked about a 12-hour day just to make what I need to make on a daily basis so we can make ends meet.
I'm ready to go work in a hospital environment and hopefully earn an hourly wage instead of this nonsense at home. Trouble is, none of the hospitals here are hiring for transcriptionists and seem to be doing away with it...now what? ~ I was going to go back to school and look into Coding, but something is holding me back, and I feel there is something else is out there. I would probably enjoy doing hospital secretarial work or paperwork/charts at a hospital but don't know what that kind of position would be called. Anybody else feeling the burnout and ready to call it quits????
