Distraught Parents Call For External Inquiry Into Aishwarya Aswath's Death At Perth Children's Hospital

Aishwarya Aswath died on Easter Saturday after contracting sepsis from a bacterial infection, despite her parents begging to see a doctor at the hospital’s emergency department for nearly two hours.
The WA Child and Adolescent Health Services (CAHS), which operates Perth Children’s Hospital, has provided a report to the family, but they say it does not go far enough.
