Here's how I would do it.

1. Click the Medical Record Selection box. One of three things may occur:
IF nothing happens, press <Tab> or <Return>. One of two things may
occur:
IF the Patient Enquiry screen is displayed, select Visit. The Patient
Header screen is displayed.
The Patient Header screen is displayed.

Inverting the options and nesting them makes for a cleaner procedure.
Bulleting is optional.
