    Default Family Sues N.Y. Nursing Home Over Male Stripper Visit


    Photo of nursing home patient Bernice Youngblood with visiting stripper

    An 85-year-old
    nursing home patient was the victim of "disgraceful sexual perversion" whena male stripper gyrated in front of her against her will at the suburban West Babylon, N.Y., facility, an attorney for the woman's family said Tuesday.


    John Ray, the attorney for Bernice Youngblood and her family, displayed a picture of a man in white briefs dancing in front of the woman at East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in September 2012.


    The photo, which Ray said Youngblood's son found during a visit to his mother, shows the woman putting money into the dancer's waistband.


    Ray said Youngblood had been urged to participate and did so against her will. The family has filed suit against the nursing home seeking unspecified damages.



    Ray said Youngblood, who herself had worked as a health aide for the elderly, had her dignity taken away when "nursing home employees subjected her to this disgraceful sexual perversion."


    Youngblood, who attended the news conference in a wheelchair with some of her relatives at her side, mumbled in a barely audible voice that she felt "terrible" and "ashamed" about what happened, but did not remember details.


    Howard Fensterman, an attorney representing the facility, said a 16-member resident committee had requested the September 2012 performance and the nursing home paid the $250 fee.


    Fensterman said the facility's management reserves the right to reject a request by the residents' committee, particularly if the activity were deemed detrimental.


    "But in this instance these are adults who wanted to have this activity, they requested it, they voted on it and the nursing home approved of it," he said.


    Franklin Youngblood said he went to a nursing supervisor for an explanation immediately after finding the photo in his mother's bedroom drawer. The lawsuit claims the nurse attempted to grab the photo from him.


    Fensterman said the girlfriend of one of Bernice Youngblood's sons had taken her to the stripper show, and not nursing home employees. Ray said Youngblood's son disputed that claim and, in any case, that does not mean Youngblood was not harmed by what she saw.


    Fensterman also chided Ray for claiming that Youngblood was suffering from dementia, while at the same time noting the woman signed a power of attorney document claiming she was competent to sign it.


    "Ms. Youngblood suffers from partial dementia," Ray said. "She has moments of partial lucidity."


    The claims and counter-claims came during a sequence of heated news conferences outside the facility in West Babylon. Reporters and cameramen jostled in a large scrum around Fensterman and Ray when they briefly became embroiled in an argument after Ray presented his counterpart with a copy of the lawsuit complaint.


    The state Health Department is investigating the incident, a spokesman said.

    wait, so was she lucid when she slipped the bill into the stripper's g-string, or when she complained that she had been subjected to sexual perversion?

    You should see the furious arguments on Gawker over this exact point.

    The son and his lawyer were on TMZ and they were waaaay over the top. The lawyer was saying stuff like what if the old lady got AIDS from sticking her hands in the guy's pants? They are also playing up a racial angle.

    The funny thing is, the guy's wife/girlfriend was present when it all happened. If it was so against the family's morals, why didn't she remove her from the situation?

    Maybe he had a small willy. I'd sue if my stripper had a dinky winky.

    All I know is if I were "ashamed" and "felt terrible" over something, I sure as hell wouldn't hold on to the photographic evidence in my room for almost two years. Just sayin'........

    First off, I think he and his mom have the same stank look on their faces.
    Secondly, I find it pretty cool that a nursing home would even bring strippers there.

    My thoughtful coworkers got me a stripper for my 33rd birthday (don't ask me why) - and the guy came to my desk at Ford, where I was employed at the time, dressed as a cop. He handcuffed me to my chair and proceeded to take lots of things off to the Beatles "Birthday" ditty. Yeah, dinky winky, and he was shorter than me (I'm 5'2"). Didn't look like the guy in these photos at all.

    If this had happened to my mom at a nursing home, I'd laugh my ass off. Ma would have enjoyed the hell out of it.

    My grandmother would be sued for sexual harassment after she kidnapped the stripper.
