A lawsuit was recently filed in another state (New York) alleging abuse and mistreatment of residents. The Long Island, New York, facility stands accused of intimidating, confusing, shocking and mistreating residents by bringing in "low-rent" male dancers several times to entertain residents. The allegations arose after a photograph of one resident putting a dollar bill into the underwear of a dancer was found by that resident's family.
According to the lawsuit, the family, upon confronting staff at the facility with the photograph, had their concerns dismissed. The resident's son even claims that a staff member tried to steal the photograph from him; another family member was told by a nurse at the facility that the exotic dancers were brought in as an "enterainment event...in good faith."
