$installer = new Mage_Sales_Model_Resource_Setup('core_setup');
$attribute  = array(
'type'          => 'int',
'label'         => 'Is Notified',
'default'       => 0,

We can use event observer for this as below:

Observer code:

         * Hold Notified status display in admin order view
         * @param $observer
        public function updateSalesOrderInfo($observer)
            if ($observer->getBlock() instanceof Mage_Adminhtml_Block_Sales_Order_View_Info) {
                $order = Mage::registry('sales_order');
                if ($order->getState() == Mage_Sales_Model_Order::STATE_HOLDED) {
                    $isNotified = $order->getData('is_notified');
                    $html = $observer->getTransport()->getHtml();
                    if ($isNotified) {
                        $html = str_replace('<span id="order_status">On Hold</span>', '<span id="order_status">On Hold</span><div>(Notified)</div>', $html);
                    } else {
                        $html = str_replace('<span id="order_status">On Hold</span>', '<span id="order_status">On Hold</span><div>(Not Notified)</div>', $html);

                    $observer->getTransport()->setData('html', $html);
