During my years as a court reporting student, I have done transcription for court reporters and taught court reporting. I have experience as a legal secretary in both small and large law firms, providing me with a knowledge of personal injury and family law, as well as corporate and tax law.
My experience in the medical field has provided me with a a broad vocabulary including anatomy, medical, and legal terminology. Patient charting requires attention to detail and careful proofreading to avoid potentially life-altering errors. As a health care provider, I carried malpractice insurance, so I understand the implications regarding this type of litigation. I have worked in hospitals and outpatient surgical centers as well as dental offices. I am familiar with OSHA/MSDS, lactation, high-risk OB/GYN, ICU, cardiology, oncology, pediatrics, NICU, PICU, orthopedics, general surgery, rehabilitation, dental, oral surgery, ophthalmology, and pharmacology.
Keeping in mind that this is a verbatim transcript, I proofread for context, accuracy, consistency, formatting, punctuation, spelling and grammar. I proofread in PDF format, marking easy-to-read notations directly above the text. I return the corrected pages only or the entire transcript to you, whatever your preference may be.
My references include Morson's English Guide for Court Reporters, The Gregg Reference Manual, and Margie Wakeman Wells' resources.
