EMC-6655 Fixed bugs in Researcher for Gold. Added "Hospital Alerts" code table to System code tables. Added "Potential Registry" field to System and Command Fac. "Hospital Alerts" code table in order to auto populate the field in Page 8 based on the "Alert Type" selected. Added "Hosp. Notify - Method" list to Researcher. Added in "Hosp. Notify - Alert Type" System Defaults list to Researcher. Added "Sepsis" to System Defaults list. Bulk loaded all System Defaults into all existing Command Facilities as hidden. Command Facilities have the option to turn on and use any of the System Default options for "Hospital Alerts". Added "Smartphone App" to Hospital Notify Method list.
EMC-6858 Added new configuration option to the units code table. This change allows to restrict units to a base. Affects homepage and page1 "units" and "base" selectors
EMC-6710 Removed Page 8 NEMSIS Procedure Code Confirmation box, as it will auto-select an appropriate value, and alert the user to select only if a match cannot be made.

Updated Glasgow Coma descriptions to adhere to International standards by adding the ability to document "Not Testable" - or NT - for each component (Eyes, Verbal, Motor).

NT does not have a number equivalent; therefore, when used, it cannot be totaled for a Sum GCS. On page 3 and page 8, when NT is used, the "Total" is N/A.

If any of the following fields are used in your Custom Reporting, you could begin to see "N/A" as a reported result:
Initial GCS - Total
GCS, Total - First
GCS, Total - Last

EMC-6555 Added SCT procedure options for Page 8 Ventilator and Titrate procedures
EMC-6901 Added check to suppress QA Flag emails if the crew member does not belong to same service that the chart belongs to.
