As I sit here and edit/retype at 4cpl speech recognition for about 99% of my payperiods, I realize that every time I delete words, sentences, phrases, etc. for quality, for my MME's preference (do not be redundant, delete words dictated like significant for etc)... EVERY TIME I delete words, I am taking pay away from myself.
These add up. So, if I were to sit and delete 99% of a document, I have spent my time reading through and listening with my technical knowledge to gibberish either created by the dictator and or with speech recognition programming. My knowledge is penalized when I hit the delete button. I may as well say I am working for less than free, because I am in effect deleting my 4cpl down to 0 cpl.
Does this occur to anyone? That when we edit out, we edit our pay down? We are allowed to keep our jobs with a 99% quality score. But we are robbing ourselves of wages by deleting words...
With that in mind, do you keep in redundant test you are trained not to keep, like Allergies: Allergies are significant for XXX, (delete most of this sentence and instead be paid nothing for doing it and then making it look good so it says Allergies: XXX.
You know that delete key is taking away how much pay?
Any thoughts on the above. This is not meant to be flamed, this is posted for intelligent conversation. Thank you in advance.
