Proposed Regulation – Board of Physical Therapy Examiners


​ ​​​

NEWARK – The Board of Physical Therapy Examiners has proposed amendments to regulations governing supervision of licensed physical therapist assistants.

This proposal amends supervision requirements so that, if patient records are maintained on computer record keeping systems which do not permit a supervising licensed physical therapist to sign a licensed physical therapist assistant’s notes, the supervising licensed physical therapist will be able to enter a separate note in the record indicating that he or she reviewed the licensed physical therapist assistant’s notes or the plan of care. 

The proposed amendments, and information on how to submit a comment by December 20, 2019, can be viewed on the Division of Consumer Affairs’ website here
