Why does the nurse aid suspect the patient is in pain although she says “Fine” when asked how she feels?

A the resident is grimacing

The nurse aide can know a patient’s condition by using non-verbal communication. Facial expressions, such as grimacing, frowning, or tight lips are able to indicate pain. Signs of discomfort are moaning or becoming completely silent. Involuntary actions that tell where the patient hurts are rubbing or holding a part of the body . When a patient’s words do not match their actions, look for non-verbal cues that are able to help determine how to assist the patient.

There are definitely a few mistakes in this app, some of the answers are just plain wrong so make sure this is not your only source of study material. Other than that this app is very helpful.

I would love to give this app 5 stars but in the Nursing Skills section it does not allow you to go on to part 7. After you get to part 6 it either just never loads or it tells you to go to part 7 and does absolutely nothing.
