Your mother needs to be medically qualified to be in a facility. Ask if there is a waiting list and place her on waiting lists for facilities that you visit.
Yes, most folks come directly from a hospital, but with her doctor, you need to work on creating a file that indicates that she is in need of NH care. You can also get a "needs" assessment through your local Area Agency on Aging, which will evaluate her ability to do "Activities of Daily Living" (ADLs) which is another part of the qualification.
