Knowledge Base Article #185:

The STAT interface is cutting off the last names of some patients.

Problem: I have patients named like "John St Smith" and "Paul Von Whatsit" in STAT.  After I interface to GRS the last name =  "St" and "Von" and the suffix = "Smi" and "Wha". 

Reason: STAT is thinking that these patients are JRs or SRs, like "John Doe JR".  After the interface the lastname would be "Doe" and the suffix would be "JR". 

Fix: Carecentric recommends that patients with compound last names be entered like "John St-Smith" or "Paul VonWhatsit"
