Hayden R. Miller was recuperating from triple bypass heart surgery this summer when he started to feel chills and fever. Instead of checking into a hospital for treatment of what turned out to be a heart valve infection, Miller was sent home with equipment and instruction on self-administering antibiotics. Three times a day the Riverside man inserted a needle-ended rubber tube into a catheter lodged in his arm and for 35 to 40 minutes pumped antibiotics into his body.
