They sort of do.

If you look at the link I put up earlier
https://www.openstreetmap.org/edit#map=21/-28.07641/153.42328, then click
on the Pharmacy node, you get told that (in this case) "Discount Drug
Stores has incomplete tags" & gives you the options to either Upgrade or
Ignore it.

If you then click on the "i - info" button, it tells you that it should
have additional tags & the Suggested Updates are +healthcare=pharmacy

Same applies to the medical centre with the option healthcare=clinic.

All of which I've only found out about within this last week!, so I agree
they could be a lot clearer in their explanations.

All in all though, I'd agree with the earlier comments of moving stuff away
from amenity into their own specialised fields eg healthcare, emergency &
so on.
