Typical amenities at a nursing home: meals, housekeeping, 24-hour emergency medical services, and lapdances?

A Long Island nursing home is under fire for providing male strippers to its residents, according to The New York Post. While other nursing homes have more conventional activities like bingo night or watching Cocoon, the folks here were permitted to make it rain dollar bills over adult performers. Here's a choice selection from the story:

The son of one resident, 85-year-old Bernice Youngblood, was shocked when he showed up for a visit and found a picture of his mom stuffing dollar bills — which are supposed to be locked away in her commissary account — into a dancer’s briefs.

After expressing his displeasure to the staff he filed a lawsuit, claiming his mom “...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 and limbs, over [her].”

This apparently wasn't the first time residents at East Neck Nursing Center in West Babylon were treated to a "low-rent Chippendale’s striptease," and a nurse told the family that this was simply an "entertainment event."
