The Novus Ordo Sacrament of the Sick says this and only the forehead and hands are anointed with the Oil of the Sick.

“PER ISTAM SANCTAM UNCTIONEM + ET SUAM PIISSIMAM MISERICORDIAM ADIUVET TE DOMINUS GRATIA SPIRITUS SANCTI, UT A PECCATIS LIBERATUM + TE SALVET ATQUE + PROPITIUS ALLEVIET.”

‘Through this holy anointing, + may the Lord in His love and mercy, help you with the grace of the Holy Spirit. Amen.’

‘May the Lord who frees you from your sin, + save you and + raise you up.  Amen.’

The Novus Ordo Vatican documents says that the Sacrament of the Anointing of the Sick is to be only administered to those who are DANGEROUSLY ILL.

Before the anointing with the Oil of the Sick in the traditional Rite, this prayer is prayed over the seriously sick, dying person;

In nómine Patris +, et Fílii +, et Spíritus + Sancti, exstinguátur in te omnis virtus diáboli per impositiónem mánuum nostrárum, et per invocatiónem gloriósae et sanctae Dei Genitricis Virginis Mariea, ejusqye inclytu Sponsi Joseph, et ómnium sanctórum Angelelórum, Archangelórum, Patriarchárum, Prophetárum, Apostolorum, Mártyrum, Confessórum, Virginum, atque ómnium simul Sanctórum.

In the Name of the Father +, and of the Son +, and of the Holy Spirit +, let there be extinguished in you all power of the devil by the imposition of our hands, and by the invocation of the glorious and holy Mother of God, the Virgin Mary, and of her illustrious Spouse, St. Joseph, and of all the holy Angels, Archangels, Patriarchs, Porphets, Apostles, Martyrs, Confessors, Virgins, and of all the saints together.
