The American Medical Association has officially adopted a resolution by a long-term care advocate calling for a public listing of medical directors for the nation’s nursing homes. 

At a delegates meeting this week, the AMA pledged to advocate for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to host the proposed list of medical directors in order to “promote healthcare transparency and consumer access to quality healthcare.”
