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 organisation.
