Nursing home allegedly hired stripper for 85-year-old grandmother

EAST BABYLON, LONG ISLAND (PIX11) — A Long Island nursing home is accused of hiring a stripper to dance for its senior residents, including an 85-year-old grandmother whose son is suing the facility over the “vile” event.

The lawsuit is expected to be filed this week against the East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in  West Babylon. It alleges that employees at the nursing home hired exotic dancers.

The son of a nursing home resident claims he found a picture of a man grinding against his mother, who was seen in the picture stuffing dollar bills into the dancer’s briefs as other seniors looked and cheered on, according to the lawsuit. He said he made the shocking discovery among his mother’s belongings in January.

The 85-year-old’s son said his mother lacks the physical and mental capacity to make a decision like that for herself. When he confronted a nurse about the alleged situation, he was told that it was an entertainment event, according to the lawsuit.

Requests for comment from the nursing home in question were not returned by the time of publication.
