Social Media Abuse
The Board has been advised that false and misleading information regarding discipline allegedly imposed on a recent licensee was posted on social media by a classmate. Defaming a licensee on social media is not professional or ethical, and could be grounds for disciplinary action. Anyone who becomes aware of the intentional dissemination of false and misleading information regarding a physical therapist's licensure status or disciplinary record should immediately report that information to the Board.
George F. Hamilton
Professor Emeritus of the ECU Department of Physical Therapy
The NC Board of PT Examiners (NCBPTE) expresses sincere condolences to the family of George Hamilton, Professor Emeritus of the Department of Physical Therapy at East Carolina University, who passed away during the Thanksgiving Holiday. He served on the Board in 1985 and 1986 as Secretary/Treasurer, and was instrumental in drafting the language that still forms the backbone of the scope of practice definitions in the Board Rules today. He will be sorely missed, but his contributions to the profession of physical therapy in North Carolina will never be forgotten.
