I would go with A. Other options are either wordy or grammatically incorrect.

Btw, I took my GMAT just 3 days back and this was my very first question.

I was stuck between A and C.

After reviewing I realized that more than the difference between Rules intended VS Rules intending, if we spot the difference in meaning of the two sentences, A wins as are patients, not the hospital's emergency room, which are put through a triage.

It's an example of absolute phrase, which contains a noun and a noun modifier and modifies the whole clause or sentence. It provides additional information.

See example below.

A.rules intended to ensure that at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients put through triage in a hospital emergency room
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
C. rules intending to ensure at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients in a hospital emergency room put through triage
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
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

OA....will be provided later...plz explain....



Purpose is always shown by infinitive to + verb (to ensure)
ensuring and intending is awkard in option B & C
Option D .."ensuring and should" is redundant.
Option E.."this,that,these, should always be followed by a noun,Hence wrong

Option A is correct.

The state has proposed new rules that would set minimum staffing levels for nurses, rules intended to ensure that at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients put through triage in a hospital emergency room.

Option A is presenting an absolute phrase modifer, which looks fine. I was only concerned with the meaning of "triage" whether it should modify nurses or patient.
I googled out its meaning and found that it is a process of prioritizing patients in a order as per the emergency. Thus, "put through triage" is modifying patients and that is also ok.

A.rules intended to ensure that at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients put through triage in a hospital emergency room -- OK

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 -- to be - to be awkward.

C. rules intending to ensure at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients in a hospital emergency room put through triage -- good contender against A, but put through triage is placed after room, making it a dangling modifier. Further for rules intending VS rules intended in this context intended wins.

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
Ensure - should pair is enough to eliminate it.

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 - expressing whole idea using pronoun -- not allowed.

It is an example that tests noun+noun modifier concept. another similar examples are

1)[b]Floating in the waters of the equatorial Pacific, an array of buoys collects and transmits data on long-term
interactions between the ocean and the atmosphere, [color=#ec008c]interactions
that affect global climate.


2)Yellow jackets number among the 900 or so species of the world’s social wasps, wasps living in a highly
cooperative and organized society where they consist almost entirely of females—the queen and her sterile
female workers.

3) With surface temperatures estimated at minus 230 degrees Fahrenheit, Jupiter's moon Europa has long been
considered far too cold to support life, and with 60 square miles of water thought to be frozen from top to
bottom.
. This one is a bit tricky.

A member sidhu4u has given a good approach to deal with such questions as below.
B) Europa has long been considered far too cold to support life, its
Correct answer.
Think of it like this: Europa, its 60 square miles of water thought to be frozen from top to bottom, has long been considered far too cold to support life.
This is a type of modifier I think although I'm not sure what the construction is called.
