    Rothen put into the 8-th field of the HL7-field always 'N' when a value was not pathological.
    All other laboratories left this field empty.
    Fix & JUnit4-Test case ready.

    In the HL7-specification (downloadable via http://www.hl7.org/library/General/v231.zip\)
    we find in Chapter 7:
    Abnormal flags (ID) 00576
    Definition: This field contains a table lookup indicating the normalcy status of the result. We strongly recommend sending this value when applicable. If the observation is an antimicrobial susceptibility, the interpretation codes are: S=susceptible; R=resistant; I=intermediate; MS=moderately susceptible; VS=very susceptible. (See ASTM 1238 ‑ review for more details). Refer to HL7 table 0078 - Abnormal flags for valid entries.
    When the laboratory can discern the normal status of a textual report, such as chest X-ray reports or microbiologic culture, these should be reported as N when normal and A when abnormal. Multiple codes, e.g., abnormal and worse, would be separated by a repeat delimiter, e.g., A~W.
    Therefore it should be okay to treat 'N' as a valid value.
