Doctors risking jail over hospitalised refugee child

MEDICAL staff have an ethical obligation to keep an asylum seeker baby at the Lady Cilento Children's Hospital in Brisbane, a doctors group says.

Protesters have been maintaining a vigil outside the South Brisbane hospital since Friday night in support of the doctors, who will not discharge the one-year-old girl known as Asha until a "suitable home environment is identified".

Her parents have been allowed to stay in Australia while their daughter is being treated.

All three are due to be sent back to Nauru.
