I would like to understand the difference between "Who" and "Whom". As per the definition Who is used for "subject" and "whom" is used for object, but from the sentence I am unable to recognize the subject and object difference. I guess patient here is subject.

If the question is asked and the answer is "he/she/they" we use "who".. whereas if the answer comes out to be "him/her/them" we use "whom"..
Example-

ABC was playing football last evening...
Question- who was playing football?

I asked ABC to help me do my homework.
Question- whom did you ask for help?
Also in the question "them who " is redundant

(A)many who wrong because "who" denotes a new phrase in the commas, and this is a noun modifier which does not require a new subject
(B)many of them who "them" is redundant
(C)and many of them who and denotes an unrelated phrase, when in reality this is a noun modifier for "elderly patients"
(D)many of whom
(E)many of which which cannot refer to people
