How can I make patients from different departments visually distinguishable?

If you have patients from multiple departments, consider using the Color of Background to be able to visually distinguish what department a patient is from just by glancing at the Whiteboard.
With Color of Background option you can assign a specific color for each Whiteboard, for example:
Blue = Internal Medicine
Pink = Cardiology
Purple = Emergency
Green = Dentistry
Orange = Surgery
Then when you choose Color of Background Sorting Option all the patients will be grouped accordingly. This can be especially helpful when the patient is physically in the ICU, for example, but the Whiteboard can still indicate from which department they are originated:
Some clinics find it helpful to come up with a legend behind each color and post it around the clinic so the staff is familiar with it.
NOTE: By applying the Colour of Background sorting, you can prioritize your patients. With this sorting option, colors will always be displayed on the Whiteboard as follows (top to bottom):
