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 - OUT; 'at least one nurse' not 'one nurse at least'

C. rules intending to ensure at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients in a hospital emergency room put through triage - OUT; misplaced '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 - OUT; misplaced '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 - OUT; 'at least one nurse' not 'one nurse at least'

Hence I go with A.

A is a semi-run-on :) It definitely looks like a run-on but it is the best choice.
Also, if you read the last part independently, you will notice that it cannot stand on its own. If it was "rules are intended..." then it was for sure a run-on.

I agree with A, I think that it is the best option. However, if it were "[...], rules intending to ensure...", that would sound better for me.
Could anybody clarify when to use -ing and when to use -ed? I am always in trouble with this stuff.
Thanks in advance.

A is not a run-on sentence! "rules intended ..." is not a clause, it is a modifier! If it is a clause, it should be "rules intends to/rules are intended to.."
The state has proposed new rules that would set minimum staffing levels for nurses, rules [highlight](which are)[/highlight] intended to ensure that at least one nurse is assigned for every four patients put through triage in a hospital emergency room.

It's a resumptive modifier:
"A modifier that repeats a key word at the end of a sentence and then adds informative or descriptive details related to that word."

Kudo me if i'm right *winks* (I need 4 more kudos)

hey boeinz
Great eye ! You are a detective.

Second reason for choosing A
A) put through triage ----> Active voice
B) to be put through triage ----> I think passive voice.

Third reason for choosing A
"ensure that" is IDIOMATIC

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 - OUT; 'at least one nurse' not 'one nurse at least'
Hence I go with A.

Intend + to is the correct idiom hence B,D are out
ensure + that is the correct idiom hence C,E are out

hence A is the correct answer
hope this helps :) :)

We are modifying entire main clause and to do it we label it as rules.
