Usage of "so X that Y" can be used in the following scenarios:

"He was injured so seriously that he needed immediate medical attention"
"The room was so bare that she had to re-decorate it"

On the other hand, usage of "X so that Y" can be used to denote the element of purpose, e.g.:

"He gave her a car so that she could drive to work"
"She donated gifts so that the organization could offer to various charitable homes"
