Eeaaasy there, partner. They said they don't want insulin and you're gonna kick them to the curb?

One step at a time, bud.

Offer the insulin, let them refuse (they seem to have capacity), but who ever said anything about discharging them.

Where would they go!?

Haven't they been through enough?

Patients who have the capacity to make medical decisions are allowed to refuse life-saving medical treatment. You should offer it but accept her refusal.
