    Hand hygiene is the most effective way in preventing the health care-associated infection. In this work, we propose to investigate the automatic recognition of the hand hygiene poses with RGB-D videos. Different classifiers are experimented with the Histogram of Oriented Gradient (HOG) features extracted from the hand regions. With a frame-level classification rate of more than 95%, and with 100% video-level classification rate, we demonstrate the effectiveness of our method for recognizing these hand hygiene poses. Also, we demonstrate that using the temporal information, and combining the color with depth information can improve the recognition accuracy.
