Item 5. Other Events

     On March 31, 1999, Sun Healthcare  Group,  Inc. ("Sun") filed its Form 10-K
for the year ending December 31, 1998 with certain sections thereof omitted. Sun
obtained  an  extension  from  the  Securities  and  Exchange   Commission  (the
"Commission")  to file an amended Form 10-K,  including such previously  omitted
sections, on or before April 15, 1999. As a result of management's determination
(in light of recent  discussions  with the Commission  and Sun's  auditors) that
Sun's June 30, 1998 acquisition of Retirement Care Associates, Inc. will need to
be  recorded  as a purchase  rather than a pooling of  interests  as  originally
recorded, Sun did not file the amended Form 10-K by April 15,  1999. Sun expects
to file the amended Form 10-K, including the previously omitted sections,  on or
about April 23,  1999.

     Statements  contained  in this  Current  Report  on Form  8-K  that are not
historical  statements,  including but not limited to statements  containing the
words   "anticipates,"   "expects,"  "may,"  "plan,"  and  "believe"  constitute
forward-looking  statements  within the  meaning of federal  law.  Sun  cautions
investors  that   forward-looking   statements  are  not  guarantees  of  future
performance, and they are subject to numerous uncertainties and risks that could
cause Sun's actual results or performance to materially differ from management's
current expectations.



     Pursuant to the  requirements  of the Securities  Exchange Act of 1934, the
registrant  has duly  caused  this  report  to be  signed  on its  behalf by the
undersigned thereunto duly authorized.

                                    SUN HEALTHCARE GROUP, INC.
