@Welshcar  I knew there was someone else (and I was actually going to search it) - so thank you as well.   I am self employed in medical transcription, but I am not a nurse.  I give you guys a TON of credit for dealing with doctors on a daily basis.

@FelskyNY  Thanks! Fortunately, I no longer have to deal with doctors on a daily basis. I also work from home. I work for the state health department and conduct investigations at hospitals for adverse events or consumer complaints. I really love it, though I do miss the patient care aspect of nursing. 
Your job sounds interesting. Sounds like something I would like to do.

@Welshcar  Often people think I do medical billing - I actually transcribe doctor's dictations/notes.

I did office notes way back when and now I do radiology (MRI/CT/Carotid etc) and No Fault/Workers Comp/Liability exams. I totally get missing the people aspect.

@FelskyNY  I was under the impression that most doctors use transcription programs like Dragon or whatever is out there now. 
I would come across some funny mistakes in progress notes or op reports that I knew were computer generated. Humans do a superior job 🥰

My husband is an RN as well, but also mainly works from home now (manager of home health services) He feels the same as you @Welshcar. He enjoys many aspects of his job, but he misses the patient care. My daughter just became a CNA this last year through a youth apprenticeship program, and her goal is to go on to nursing school and become an RN. ❤️❤️❤️

@Welshcar  Yes with EMR - the need for transcriptionists have gone down greatly.  Outsourcing has also crushed some of us.  Thankfully I have some really loyal docs who have stayed with me and I greatly appreciate it.  I also handle the administrative part of it and catch errors, which EMR does not.  I am probably quickly become a dinosaur in the field.   Funny thing is, I was quarantining before quarantining was a "thing". I have worked from home these last 25 years.
