a.    Patient was admitted into hospital but was hostile and restrained.  Doctor performed surgery and put him in a private room that was unsecure.  Patient tried to leave and employees tried to stop him. 2 employees died and 1 was injured.  Suit for negligence diagnosis by the doctor resulting in bad treatment and release of hostile patient.
b.    Plaintiffs claimed doctor had a duty for reasonable care to third parties when the doctor’s acts would result in injury to third parties.
c.    HELD: any duty for reasonable care on a physician is to avoid negligence to the patient ONLY.  Employees and third parties cannot sue for a breach of duty by a physician.  Only a patient could have sued in this situation.  The physician-patient relationship does not transfer over to third parties.
