Is my job being phased out? Should I look for another job?

By: vernette Category: Transcription

Here’s a little history: I am a 37-year-old female who has been a medical transcriptionist (by title) at a mental health facility since 1993. There were seven transcriptionists working there when I was first hired; however, I am the only transcriptionist left and the only person who dictates now is the doctor (all the clinicians now are required to type their own notes). I also record and type all the meetings (there are one to two meetings a day on average). That now consists of 90% of my job. I can type minutes to meetings, but I still feel out of my element in doing that, even 10 years after I was assigned to do that task (whereas medical transcription comes naturally to me).

Ever since they hired this one woman (I’ll call her K.M.), some of my job responsibilities (some purchasing and making graphs for the client satisfaction surveys, among a couple of other things) have been relegated to her. It should be of note that K.M. is the daughter of the President of the Board of Directors and she brown-noses Management all the time.

My supervisor is getting ready to have a kidney transplant this year and will most likely retire around age 60 (she just turned 58). My supervisor has been so flexible with me for 15 years as far as my schedule, is like a second mom to me, and in return I’ve helped her whenever I could (including personal favors). I don’t have the heart to look for another job while my supervisor is still there and needs my help, and because the economy in general is so bad. I am thinking about finding another job around the same time she retires (in other words: "When she leaves, I leave.") Will my timing be right in that case as far as finding another job? I have a feeling in my gut that once she leaves, that I will get laid off.

I think you are doing the right thing. As long as your Supervisor is there and you have a terrific relationship with her, I would stay put. You said they are delegating more work to the President’s daughter so I would not be surprised if they were preparing to let you go earlier. She is (more than likely) a cheaper paycheck because you have been there for a long time and they are basically weaning out your other duties by making the others type their own work.

I am in the same predicament. I work from home, but many of my duties were given to someone else who was recently hired in. Things I’ve always typed will now be done by the person who creates the report themselves. I am basically marching time, not making waves and just waiting for them to let me go. I still do a good job, but my time is coming to an end with this company.

Hopefully in a few years the economy will be better and you can find a job elsewhere.
