The father of Jared Olsen is considering legal action after a WA coroner found he had received deficient treatment by doctors at a Perth public hospital, which prescribed medication that ultimately killed him.

A "system breakdown" at Fiona Stanley Hospital rather than individual clinicians was blamed by Coroner Ros Fogliani for the preventable death of the 41-year-old man.
