Lawsuit filed against Sun Mar over nursing practices

SANTA ANA Cal.USA Jan 10 2008

An attorney filed a lawsuit Thursday against Sun Mar Healthcare Inc., alleging that the skilled nursing company scrimps on staffing and training and misrepresented staffing levels to elderly residents.

Sun Mar operates 18 nursing homes in California, including six in Orange County and at least eight in the Los Angeles area.

"Residents of Sun Mar facilities are elder abuse victims waiting to happen ... It's just a matter of whose parents or grandparents are going to be the victims."

Garcia also cited dozens of deficiencies and warnings issued to various Sun Mar facilities by the California Department of Health Services.
Sun Mar was formed in 1981.
