Abstract
Mercury is a toxic chemical pollutant commonly used in health care that can adversely affect the nervous system and kidneys. In light of this fact, the 1997 ANA House of Delegates adopted a resolution calling for the ANA to collaborate with other state and federal organizations to create mercury-free health care facilities. The ANA continues to be committed to eliminating mercury in health care.
