Clear B

Explanation: since its says their, so medical patient must be plural, hence choose eliminate A, D, and E.

Now they have a legal right is logically correct rather than there is a legal right.

Idiom: Require + subject [x] + to + verb

Choices D and E are OUT

Idiom: Tell + subject + that

Choice A is out

Between B and C, B hold the original meaning of the sentence. The right is there and they HAVE it.

Can someone please elucidate the consensus response and elaborate on their thinking, as I am having difficulty with the sentence construction?

I find the use of a singular "hospital" to be confusing and the use of their discharge as incompatible witht he rest of the sentence. Any ideas?

it would be patients here not patient as patient is not logical and awkward and if patient is correct then they/their are incorrect wich would eliminate all so patients is correct => a,d,e out
they have a is better than there is a here so

B is correct
