Hospitals all over the world can physically restrain you if they believe you are a danger to yourself or others.

No, only in America is it something you need to worry about doing, save for a rare potential circumstance where you might be being committed to an institution against your will.

Out of the "western" world, only in America does one need to worry about making a daring escape from the hospital to avoid paying for necessary, lifesaving care.
