How can I find a facility for my mom in 3 days?

I have suddenly been faced with placing my mom in a skilled nursing facility and I don't know where to start. What questions to ask, what to look for when I visit different facilities and how they are rated example if they have been fined and why. I need to find one in the next 3 days. This is so emotionally draining especially since she is not happy with the decision as I'm sure most aren't. She is currently in the hospital after having surgery and they are planning on releasing her and I physically cannot lift her to help get up or down. Please help me

The hospital should be able to help you with this. The Social Worker should be talking to you about options and give you some names of facilities that would fit the needs of your Mother.
If a hospital Social Worker has not contacted you call the hospital and ask to talk to a Social Worker or go to the Nurses desk on the floor where your Mom is and ask them to contact one for you.
