Agree w/ B. They should refer to patients, and hospital is better to be singular just to avoid any confusion.

Thanks everyone. The OA is B. I was confused because there is no article before "hospital". So i dismissed it since it sounds pretty awkward. It seems as if "hospital" is a person since there is no article before it..

any explanations??

I don't think use of article would be appropriate here as you are talking about hospitals in general. Notice the plural noun
