    Nursing home being sued for hiring strippers to dance for elderly residents

    Nursing home being sued for hiring strippers to dance for elderly residents

    On East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center’s website, they say they are, “shifting the paradigm to redefine the rehabilitation experience. We will provide you or your loved one with an unsurpassed level of care that will nurture body, mind, and spirit.” A man now suing the nursing home thinks that they might’ve shifted that paradigm a little too much when they hired strippers to perform for their patrons, as the New York Post reports.

    Franklin Youngblood was furious when he discovered a photo of his mother, 85-year-old Bernice Youngblood, putting money into a dancer’s underwear. After finding the photograph, he confronted a staffer, who then allegedly both laughed and tried to take the picture away. Mr. Youngblood is now suing East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center, saying his mother, “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 and limbs, over [her].”



    Mr. Youngblood and his attorneys are questioning why she was giving her money to a stripper when it was supposed to be kept locked up in a commissary account and they also claim that the 85-year-old woman, “lacks the mental and physical capacity” to have protested the event. Attorney John Ray said, “Bernice Youngblood has lived 85 years as a traditional Baptist, hard-working, lady . . . And now she has been defiled.” Additionally, Ray alleges that in addition to the strippers, the nursing home also hired escorts.

    The New York Post’s report mentions they reached out to the nursing home for comment on the lawsuit, but have not heard back. The story did mention, though, that in conversation with the son they claimed it was an “entertainment event” done in “good faith.” Looking at the Better Business Bureau’s listing on East Neck shows that it’s only had one complaint in the past three years and that there have been, “no significant government actions involving East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation.”

    Franklin Youngblood and his attorneys held a press conference today. Currently, the outlets reporting on the matter have provided no new information.

    As someone who has spent way too much time at one....thumbs up to these folks, bingo only holds fascination for so long.

    The guy suing was the kid who reminded your teacher she forgot to give homework.

    who cares....let these poor women have some fun. This whole thing is harmless... If the son cares about this so much, why not have his mother live with him for the rest of her days, to prevent her from being exposed to such "filth".

    What exactly is he suing for? I was kinda hoping that it would be chicks doing the stripping, but regardless, this was probably the most fun these folks had in a long time. Sure its not appropriate but I can't really muster up the outrage. I'm sure highly religious sect....like Ragu will be outraged though.

    Bingo! That's what I posted in the comments section. The son is trying to make a buck off his mom. Now she'll get thrown out and no one else will take her b/c they know her son is a sue happy sleezeball.

    Because nursing homes are expensive.

    No, I understand he is upset, but what is he asking the court to do? Grant an injunction to stop this from happening again? Suing for $$$ for emotional distress? What type of relief is asking for? Seems like he should move his Mother from this joint more than anything.
