Shattered parents demand answers after their baby boy with Panadol has been sent home from the hospital because doctors thought he & # 39; teething problems & # 39; – but the child died only a few hours later
- An investigation into the death of a seven-month-old boy who was launched for his destroyed family
- Malakai Matiu Ward Paraone died of meningococci in August 2016
- Inquest heard that he was being sent home from hospitals because he received & # 39; teeth
- It turned out the boy had the deadly disease that eventually killed him
The family of the baby boy who was sent home from the hospital with paracetamol to die hours later called for a review of the medical system.
In the three days before the seven-month-old Malakai Paraone was finally diagnosed with meningococci, he was examined in three hospitals and by a doctor.
The child died of complications related to severe and sudden sepsis at the Princess Margaret Hospital in August 2016, just four days after his parents claimed they were being laughed at from an ER and receiving Panadol.

Malakai was sent home every time he went to the hospital to hear from the family that he only had symptoms of teething problems.
At the request of the mother of Malakai, deputy coroner Barry King is conducting an investigation into the quality of medical care received by the baby in its final days.
Coronary lawyer Brendyn Nelson said in his opening speech on Tuesday that a month before Malakai died, he was referred to the St. John of God Hospital in Midland to treat a drawn elbow.
Then on August 22, Malakai cried, his face was red and he had a fever.

He also had a rash on his body and joint pain, including a lack of movement on his right, Mr. Nelson said.
When his family took the boy to a local doctor, he was sent back to the hospital where it was discovered that he had contracted meningococcal disease.
The following days Malakai was in and out of hospitals until he died.
Doctor William Holloway told the investigation that the & # 39; inconsistency & # 39; of treatment each time Malakai went to different hospitals may have contributed to his condition being missed.
The investigation continues.
