A is the best choice.

B. rules with the intent of ensuring one nurse at least to be assigned for every four patients to be put through triage in a hospital emergency room
- somewhat alters the meaning, and the expression is awkward.

C. rules intending to ensure at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients in a hospital emergency room put through triage
- rules don't actively intend to do something. rule-makers do.

D. with the intent of ensuring that at least one nurse should be assigned for every four patients in a hospital emergency room that are put through triage
- again, with the intent of... is one expression that GMAT hates a lot !

E. and this is intended to ensure one nurse at least to be assigned for every four patients put through triage in a hospital emergency room
- this refers to...? these would be a correct pronoun. (rules)

why is rules intended and not rules intending?
The rules are not receiving the intention (intended), but "performing" the intention (intending).

Please clarify.
Thanks.
