About Me

Hi!  Thank you for visiting my Web site!  

Specializing in:
Electronic Health Records
Healthcare documentation
Feral and domestic cats
Small animals

Frustrated with entering information into an electronic medical record?  Limited on the amount of “characters” in a block?  Being a healthcare documentation specialist/medical records technician enables me to apply and edit dictated medical thoughts into readability.  
Feel bad boarding your pets when out of town?  Instead, keep them in their comfortable surroundings at home and let me provide them individual care.  Of course they will still miss you, but they can still smell your scent at home and not be totally stressed out while being boarded.

HIPAA Fun Facts

CFR – The first number (e.g., 45) is the Title of the Code, CFR stands for “Code of Federal Regulations,” and the second number (e.g., 164.312) is the section within that title.

Under 45 CFR 164.312 (a)(2)(i) Unique User Identification of the HIPAA Security Rule, each and every workforce member should have a unique user identifier when logging into a software program that has access to electronic protected health information (PHI). One of the reasons is that there needs to be an audit trail to track use and disclosure of this information.  Individuals have a right to be provided with an account of disclosure of their protected health information based on the HIPAA Privacy Rules.

Covered entities, such as physician’s offices, may use patient sign-in sheets or call out patient names in waiting rooms, so long as the information disclosed is appropriately limited.  See 45 CFR 164.502(a)(1)(iii).


Animal Fun Facts

The upper beak of a parrot is called a rhinotheca and the lower beak is called a gnathotheca (gnath`o*the”ca\).

Dogs are one of only two mammal species that have prostate glands.  The other species is human.

The proper name for a group of cats is a clowder.  A group of kittens is called a kindle.

Some cats – both feral and domestic – do kill birds, but the major threat to birds is man, through use of pesticides and destruction of habitat.

    Hi Sherry. Came upon your blog while looking up information on my grandpa, Julius Pandl, who married Julie Pandl (Aunt Ulie) in your blog. How crazy…I am a medical transcriptionist and animal lover too! Sent my mom a copy of your blog to read. She was very excited to get it. (Lillian). Are you on facebook?
