Santa Cruz v. Northwest Dade Community Health Center, Inc., 590 So. 2d 444 (Fla. 3d DCA 1992).

In this case which tested the bounds of a medical facility's liability for acts committed by an individual being treated on an outpatient basis, the district court held that: (1) the victims, who were not patients of the health center themselves, could not maintain a medical malpractice action against the center; and (2) the center owed no duty to the victims to protect them from the patient because he was not in the center's custody.
