Welcome to SATS
The South African Theatre Nurse Organisation - SATS - is a professional organisation,
dedicated to enhancing the professionalism of operating theatre nurses.
SATS believes that in accordance with the Constitution of SA and the Human Rights
Charter, every patient has the right to the highest standard of care, according
to his or her needs. It is a historical fact that a suitably qualified registered
nurse practitioner assists the surgeon during a surgical intervention. She is accountable
for her acts and omissions, and that of the support staff. We further believe that
every peri-operative nurse practitioner is accountable for his/her personal skills
and knowledge development, clinical practice and professional practice.
SATS is a Section 21 company since October 2002, and therefore a non-profitable
