Suggested Corrections to the Database (V.9.0)

The nineth release of the database (hl7_92) is available since the January 2017.
I have done my best to get it free of errors.

Anyhow, sometimes several minor adjustments are necessary even after its release. They are listed below.


In order to reduce your amount of efforts to check the details they are sorted chronologously (newest entry comes first).
