The residents of a Long Island nursing home were exposed to a cheap, striptease show in the facility rec room, a lawsuit claims. During a family visit, 86-year-old Bernice Youngbloods son was appalled, when he found a picture of his mom, stuffing dollar bills into the dancer’s briefs. In the picture, you can see a few of the East Neck Nursing Center, in West Babylon looking on with mixed emotions as the stripper bumped and grinded.

The Youngblood family was so shocked, they immediately told the staff, but were ignored, according to the suit. “Plaintiff Bernice Youngblood was placed in apprehension of imminent, offensive, physical harm, as she was confused and bewildered as to why a muscular, almost nude man, was approaching her and placing his body limbs over her,” the suit states.

Youngbloods’ family attorneys, Jay Ray and Vesselin Mitev, state in the complaint that her son, Franklin Youngblood, found the offensive photograph among her belongings during a January visit. The son stood up to a nurse, but the staffer lunged at him and tried to snatch the picture away, the suit states.

According to the suit, a nurse later told another of the victim’s sons that the strip show was an “entertainment event” for the patients and was done in “good faith.”

“Hiring male strippers to perform for the defendant’s nursing-home patients was a serial occurrence,” the suit claims “Bernice Youngblood has lived 85 years as a traditional Baptist, hard-working, lady… And now she has been defiled,” Ray said. Her family also wants to know why their mother was holding dollar bills in her hand when all of her money was supposed to be kept under lock and key in a commissary account, but were again blown off, the papers state. The suit claims that the “vile” incident was done “all for the perverse pleasure and enjoyment of the defendant’s staff. The Younblood’s attorney argue that she “lacks the mental and physical capacity” to protect herself. The nursing home facility did not return calls for comments.
