Hello to you all;
I have a blinding head ache and my blood pressure is so high at this moment that I am surprised I have not had a stroke. SO IT IS TIME FOR MY SOAP BOX - AGAIN!
I have a client who was sent a “letter” from NMC’s MEB Branch stating that Mr. B needed additional information pertaining to his physical. No problem, inconvenient for Mr. B but Ok. In this letter it stated that he had “CHRONIC ATRIAL FIBRILLATION” more information was needed. Mr. B does not nor has he ever had any history of heart problems.
Here is the kicker, we pointed that out to the NMC-MEB and they sent us a request to “disregard” this as it was placed in his letter in error. ERROR, of for heavens sake, Mr. B was and is livid but not as much as I am. We sent all of the OTHER required information to the MEB and this morning I received a telephone call from the evaluator. Asking me to once again look at the physical that I had submitted and note that on page such and such it states quite clearly that Mr. B does indeed have “CHRONIC ATRIAL FIBRILLATION”. I looked at that page while she was on the telephone and low and behold, what she was looking at was a COPY OF NVIC-04-08, with EXAMPLES, that Mr. B had included with his package and I had just left in there when I submitted his application. You can bet your booties that I will strip every package in the future of anything that is not EXACTLY what is called for in the application.
I want to apologize to Mr. B for allowing this to happen on my watch. BUTTTTTTT - I also want to point out that even an iD10T should have been able to figure out that it was a copy of the NVIC and not part of the 9 page physical.
Thanks for listening,
Touch Keys with you later,
