<<The lawsuit alleges that Sun Mar claims to provide "superior and attentive skilled nursing care"; however, according to the suit, it fails to live up to these standards. The suit also "alleges that the corporate officers and managers of the individual homes deliberately keep the budgets so tight that appropriate staffing and training of staff cannot be provided and, therefore, residents do not receive the care they need and should be getting, and for which they are paying."

According to plaintiff's attorney Stephen M. Garcia, "[i]n our opinion, Sun Mar facilities have a long record of excessive and repeated citations for substandard patient care and violations of residents' rights, according to the California Department of Health records."

For example, Sun Mar's French Park Care Center in Santa Ana was cited for 20 deficiencies from August 1, 2004, to July 31, 2005; 34 deficiencies from August 1, 2005, to July 31, 2006; and 21 deficiencies from August 1, 2006, to October 31, 2007.

"Simply stated," continued Garcia, "the lawsuit alleges that Sun Mar misrepresents the quality and nature of the services it provides to their residents in order to entice them to pay good money for services Sun Mar does not provide. This lawsuit seeks to change corporate attitudes of greed over proper care, of promoting profits over the needs of the elder and vulnerable adults the long-term communities serve."

"We believe the facts clearly show that the promised services were not and are not being delivered, that Sun Mar management knew this to be true, and yet it continues making the same misrepresentation to the public. At a minimum, our parents and grandparents, who have lived long and served well, deserve the truth from those who would take their money. This lawsuit is about that truth being told about Sun Mar facilities in California," Garcia added.
