What should I look for when choosing a skilled nursing and rehabilitation center?

For short-term stays focused on rehabbing a patient home, ask the Skilled Nursing or Rehabilitation Facility about its successful outcomes treating patients with your or your loved one's illness, injury or disease. Ask about the staff's knowledge about post-hospital care. Tour the center for cleanliness, friendliness of staff and amenities that are important to you. Ask to sample food and visit with patients similar to you or your loved one.
