Stat-Mat: Multipurpose Surgical Instrument Tray
Untitled Document

Summary of Innovation

Sharon G. Smith, RN, invented Stat-Mat while working as a Private Scrub Nurse for a General Surgeon. Unnecessary (non value-added) time spent manually setting up and breaking down Major Instrument Kits for Laparoscopic cases motivated Sharon to invent this revolutionary concept, that not only saves time, but improves healthcare. Additionally, the innovation eliminates the need for preparation of un-utilized sterilized instruments. The revolutionary tray allows the General Instrument Kit to come from SPD all set up and ready to use, thus providing significant improvement in O.R. productivity.
