Doc dictates "supranasal" but isnt it "superonasal conjunctival fornix". Not in - traci

Posted: Aug 25, 2010


supranasal and superonasal - see msg

[ In Reply To ..]
In my experience, dictators seem to use these two terms interchangably, sometimes using one, and then other times using the other.

But since both terms have basically the same meaning, I transcribe them as dictated. Whichever one the dictator uses is the one that I will type.

Of course, I'm also on a verbatim account, but my feeling is that if they dictate "superonasal" that's what they want, and if they say "supranasal" then that's the one they want. And like I said, it really doesn't matter all that much since they both have the same meaning anyway.

Thanks to you I am no longer confused :) - traci

Isnt It Illegal For A Potential Employer To Ask Your Age?
Nov 16, 2009

Have any of you had the feeling you weren't getting callbacks from employers you applied with because of your age?  I've been getting that feeling, and I thought that discrimination based on age, among other things, was illegal. So of course, the answer would be to just not fill in your date of birth, right?  Well, lately I've applied at a few places where the ONLY way to apply was online.  I had actually called them because I wanted to either come in and fill out ...

exactly the same on every report and you have put his ROS and PE in your abbreviation expander, but sometimes he will dictate something out of order.  For example, the dictator still says the same exact things he always says, but sometimes instead of saying "EXTREMTIES:  No clubbing, cyanosis or edema."  He says, "EXTREMITIES:  No edema, clubbing or cyanosis."  Do you go back and change it or do you leave it since he is saying the same thing?  And if you don� ...
