If my name is on the deed but both my husband and I are on the mortgage, do I need a quit claim deed to remove his name from being part owner of the house?

Question Details: My husband is about to go into a nursing home and I was told that I should remove his name from the house. When I checked at the recorder of deeds office I found out only my name and my mother in laws name she's deceased is on the deed. After she passed away, we refinanced the house and both his name and mine is on the mortgage. Do I need to file a quit claim deed since his name isn't showing on the deed? Does it matter that his name is on the note?
