A Long Island nursing home is accused of hiring male strippers to celebrate a resident's 85th birthday.
A Long Island nursing home is being sued for allegedly hiring male strippers to celebrate the 85th birthday of one of its residents.
The son of the 85-year-old woman is suing East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, alleging that the nursing home hired the exotic dancers, WPIX reports.
The son said his mother lacks the physical and mental capacity to make decisions like that for herself.
The man found out about event when he found a picture of his mother stuffing dollar bills down a stripper's briefs as other seniors looked on and cheered, according to the lawsuit.
After confronting one of the facility's nurses, they told the son that the strip show was a "community event" that was all done in good faith. The son has filed a lawsuit against the nursing home, calling the what happened a "vile" event that was done for the perverse pleasure of the facility's staff.
