Abstract (in Japanese) (See Japanese page) 
(in English) As a method of preventing human error in hospital nursing duties, it is performed to include finger pointing and calling confirmation in nursing procedure. However, without much training, there are possibilities that the confirmation by finger pointing and calling may be lukewarm or forgotten. We have developed the system that automatically detects pointing and calling by action identification and voice recognition with a small wireless sensor and a small wireless microphone. In this paper, we describe the automatic evaluation method for nurse’s finger pointing and calling, by which we aim at the development of the training system to become accustomed to steady finger pointing and calling.
