(hostname)/home/oracle-> $ORACLE_HOME/OPatch/opatch lsinventory -bugs_fixed

The output of this command is as follows(Pasting only relevant section):

List of Bugs fixed by Installed Patches:

It basically replaces all occurences of 52 consequtive spaces that are at the beginning of a line with a single space, while removing the newline character located right before those spaces.
