Lawsuit: Male stripper did show at New York nursing home

By The Associated Press

WEST BABYLON, N.Y. (AP) - A lawsuit claims an elderly woman was subjected to an unwanted performance by a male stripper when she was living at a New York nursing home.

The lawsuit was filed last month by the relatives of the 85-year-old former patient at the East Neck Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in West Babylon, on Long Island.

It claims that the woman's son found a photograph in January 2013 of a male stripper gyrating in front of her. The photo, taken in September 2012, also shows other patients.

The lawsuit says a nurse said the stripper performance was part of an entertainment event.

An attorney representing the nursing home says the performance was requested and approved by a committee of residents.
