Small 1969 condo. All outlets grounded except for one in the bedroom connected to the wall switch (the whole receptacle…not just half). No ceiling light. As it’s a three prong I feel it should be grounded…BUT, because it could only be practically used for floor or bedside lamps the chances of any three-prong device being plugged in seem very remote.
I'm recommending the outlet be changed to a two hole receptacle or to a GFCI (marked no-ground). Running a ground wire is likely impractical. But I'm wondering if there is any exception for switched receptacles?
