I found this candid piece by a medical transcriptionist hilarious, even though some of the mistakes made by either the doctor or the transcriptionist shouldn’t be funny at all. I always wondered why doctors carried around a microrecorder and mutter to themselves in the hallway or at their desks. “Wouldn’t it be easier to learn short hand and write those notes so you don’t need to write it up again?” I wondered. Now I know that they save themselves that time by outsourcing that task to medical transcriptionists.
